One of Phuket’s most famous streets, Soi Bangla runs between Patong Beach and Ratuthit Road in the centre of Patong. It’s packed with bars and clubs, convenience stores, cafes and massage parlours.
Join the throngs of revellers that flock to Soi Bangla after dark, with the 400-metre-long strip closed off to vehicle traffic. You’ll find traditional pubs, discos and go-go bars, with many of the drinking venues spilling out onto the street among live performers and street vendors.
Need some retail therapy? Head to the Jungceylon Shopping Centre at the western end of Soi Bangla where you’ll find fashion stores, electronics retailers and fast-food eateries. The street also offers enticing nighttime entertainment, including live music and cabaret shows.
Soi Bangla is a 10-minute walk along the beachfront from the Patong Bus Station and surrounded by popular hotels. Phuket International Airport is around an hour’s drive away.
