If you have ever spent time on Phuket Island’s west coast before, you will know that it has a lot to offer visitors of all ages. So much so, in fact, that a lot of visitors end up renting or buying a villa so that they have more time to explore the scenic location. Cafes, restaurants and bars are speckled along Patong’s sandy stretch of beach, which sits just a stone’s throw from cabaret show venues, massage parlours and entertainment complexes.

 

Make your itinerary worthwhile by spending time at the following three highly-rated attractions in Patong:

 

Wat Chalong

There are 29 important Buddhist temples in Phuket and one that is acknowledged as the most important of them all is Wat Chalong. It was once known as Wat Chaiyathararam and you can find it in the Chalong Subdistrict. For more than a century, members of the public have been invited to learn about Buddhism at Wat Chalong.

Kathu Waterfall

For all of the nature lovers out there, Kathu Waterfall is one of the attractions in Patong worth the walk. The waterfall is posititioned 540 metres above sea level and during the rainy season, it is the perfect spot for a cool-down swim. Equally as popular as Ton Sai  Waterfall and Bang Pae Waterfall, Kathu Waterfall has a series of pools that drop down and allow visitors to take the plunge on hot days.

Bangla Boxing Stadium

As you probably already know, Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and so it would be a shame not to watch a sweaty fight whilst staying in the Patong area. Bangla Boxing Stadium is based in a central location in the Kathu District and you can expect to see fighters from all over the world take to the ring inside the stadium. Matches commence year-round and the two-storey building welcomes fighters for weekly matches on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
