Must see. Can be crowded at times though. Best time is after 2:00pm and before 7:00pm to avoid the peak rush - Lunch and dinner both unless you want to have one there.

Patong's beach is like all others.. plenty of sand and well nothing special.. there is a lovely big PATONG sign to pose next to which is a good bonus. Other than that, just go chill, relax and catch some rays.

Great location! Can be too much for someone who doesn't want to be harrassed by vendors or does not enjoy the party atmosphere!! Great for all ages looking for cheap drinks, half night long happy hours and plenty of entertainment!

The beach is nice and relaxing. There are plenty of foods and shops around the area. You can easily get some eateries and do your shopping too.

Nice beach & you can get boat rides around the bay from local fishermen, you just need to barter a decent price for it

Advance online bookings will be an economical option, as you can get better price. You can try Klook this is very good and have all the activities in most reasonable price.

You can ask the island hopping tours if they have cave tour. So far we haven't encountered any cave in our tour, except during the island hopping tour - viking cave/island which you would have to look from a distance
