Phuket’s amazing nightlife might be the most exciting in Thailand.
Not only does it have a wide variety of options for you to explore, it also is one of nicest looking places in all the world.
This makes it quite unique as it attracts many different types of tourists in Phuket, especially around the Patong Beach area.
And for this reason it also attracts many Thai girls who come to Phuket to work in the many girlie bars in Patong, or to get a chance to meet and party with foreign guys who come to holiday here.
In this guide I will you guys the best guide on this city, including the best areas, different nightlife activities, and the prices to expect.
Intro to Phuket’s Nightlife
A huge portion of the nightlife in Phuket is geared towards single men who flock to the beach side town of Patong to enjoy the naughty fun, and to get a chance to meet the lovely Thai girls who work in bars, nightclubs, and massage shops.
So for guys it is a win win situation. You can have an amazing holiday in a tropical paradise, and also live out your fantasies every single night.
So in that regard it is quite similar to Pattaya — a smaller and more beautiful version of Pattaya.
But keep in mind that Phuket is a province and also the name of the capital city known as Phuket Town. That city is not known for its nightlife and foreign oriented entertainment.
About Patong Beach
So one of the important things to keep in mind is that most of the fun and entertainment for men is in the beach side town of Patong.
And the reason is simple, it is home to Bangla Road, which is where the majority of the nightclubs, go go bars and beer bars are.
An not only that, but around Bangla road is also more nightlife options for you to experience.
So generally speaking, you would want to stay around this area when you plan your adventure in Phuket.
If you are looking for a more relaxed vibe in, then you would need to consider staying around Karon Beach, which has a much smaller nightlife scene compared to Patong.
There is also the neighboring Kata Beach, which also has a handful of bars and nightclubs, but they are not as busy as Patong. There quiet places also attract many couples, newlyweds and families.
But the main show is at Patong Beach, and that is where you can expect to have the most fun and excitement, and of course, the most sexy Thai girls to spend time with.
Red Light District in Phuket
Many first timers to Phuket wonder where the red light areas are. And the answer is simple, it is in and around Soi Bangla. This is where you will find some of the countries best go go bars and beer bars.
And you know what that means?
That you will also find some of the hottest girls in Thailand here. They will be working in the bars and nightclubs.
And keep in mind that there are many normal girls who are in this area, who have regular jobs, but wouldn’t mind partying and dating foreigner men. So many of those girls are also freelancers on the down low, who would go home with you.
Around Soi Bangla you will find even more nightclubs, beer bars and massage parlours.
Just remember that there are all types of tourists in these areas. And although Soi Bangla is considered Phuket’s red light district, it is really known as a tourist “entertainment area”.
Go Go Bars
Similar to Bangkok and Pattaya, the gogo bars in Patong are simply amazing, and maybe even the best in all of Thailand.
I’ve listed the best ones, you may be interested to read more:
Most of the venues are on Bangla Road and are good quality, with sexy bar girls who want to make sure you have an amazing time.
And because of the top quality and attractive girls, you will find that the prices are known to be expensive. But in my opinion it can be still worth it, since this whole area is such a beautiful place.
So you are basically living a real life sexual fantasy, with hot girls in a beautiful natural scenery.
Just step inside and take a look for free, if you like what you see just order a beer and sit down anywhere you like and take in the fun and sexy entertainment.
- Drinks: 150-200 baht (drink special from 99 Baht)
- Lady Drinks: 200-250 Baht
- Bar Fine: Up to 2,600 Baht (most places 800-1000 Baht)
- Short time: around 2000 Baht
- Long Time: 3000 Baht and up
The beer bars are mostly located in Patong, especially in and around Bangla Road, and also a bit further down south near the Beach Road.
You really can’t go wrong with beer bars, it is a simple way to relax, have a nice cold beer and chill out with some cute bar girls.
Typically the beer bars will have pool tables, big screen T.V.’s playing sports or music from YouTube. And since most of the bars are close to each other you can easily explore them and decide on which ones you like the most.
Usually as you walk in you will greeted by the waitress or bar girls, and they will ask what you would like to drink.
Sooner or later if you like on of the girls you can chat with her, and buy her a drink, and of course have the the option to pay for her bar fine. This will allow her to leave the bar and go out with you. What you decide to do together is up to you and her.
- Drinks: 70 – 90 Baht for beer
- Lady Drinks: around 200 Baht
- Bar Fine: 600 Baht
- Short time: 1000-2000
- Long time: 2000-3000 Baht
The amazing nightclubs in Patong are an excellent way to have a few drinks, listen to some music, and party the night away with some sexy Thai girls.
Not only will you find normal local Thai girls with normal jobs. or students, but also the working girls. So expect to see many freelancers, bar girls, massage girls who come after there shift to party with their friends, or even alone.
The scene here is really great, and there are quite a few venues that can cater to all different types of people.
Generally speaking you would want to visit the clubs on the Bangla Road area since they attract the most amount of Thai girls who are interested in foreigners.
Although there are a few other venues in Phuket town, they are mostly frequented by local Thai men, and the vibe is bit more Thai oriented.
- Beers: Around 160-200 Baht at most clubs
- Non-Alcoholic Drinks: around 120-150 Baht
- Cover Charge: Free most nights, or 200-300 Baht with 1 free drinks
Massage Shops (Happy Ending)
Of course you can expect many happy ending massage shops around the Patong Beach area, and also other places around Phuket. The the majority (and foreign oriented ones) will all be close to the Bangla Road area.
These shops are one of the best ways to spend your money.
You at least get a massage, and also can kill some time in a nice and relaxing way, while getting a massage from a lovely Thai woman.
Keep in mind that the prices for other services can be negotiated with your masseuse.
- Traditional Thai Massage: 200-250 Baht
- Oil Massge: 300 Baht
- Extras: around 500 Baht for HJ, 700 Baht BJ, 1200 Baht FS
Soapy Massage Parlors
As of now there are just two places that are worth going to in Phuket, and I will list them below.
Just know that there aren’t many soapy massage parlors in Patong like there are in places like Pattaya or Bangkok.
But the good news is that the two places are good enough to keep you satisfied should you want your “soapy massage fix” while you are on holiday in Phuket.
Christin Massage has the best soapy experience for foreigners. Not only are the girls the most attractive, but there is a nice selection of them. A good portion of the girls will be hot and worth trying out.
The process is like other soapies in Thailand.
You just walk in, take a seat or order a drink if you want. You can see the selection of girls in the “fish bowl” and simply tell the mamasan/papasan which girl you would like to get a massage from.
PRICE: 3,300 Baht (1.5 hours)
Pearl Hotel is another soapy that is located further away in Phuket Town. As you can imagine, this soapy is a bit more oriented for local Thai men, but foreigner are welcome of course.
It can be a nice chance to visit the place however, to get a away from the scene in Patong Beach and get a different experience.
The selection here is not on par with Christin Massage, and the rooms are a bit less quality. It is more like the lower end Soapy Massage shops in Bangkok.
Simple concept and design.
Just walk in and select your girl and off you go. Nothing fancy here, you know what to expect and the price involved.
PRICE: 2,600 Baht (1.5 hours).
