Patong Beach, Phuket

A journal entry from: Thailand 2009

Today I escaped from Koh Phi Phi via ferry to Phuket. I decided to stay in Patong in Phuket as it seemed closest to where I wanted to go, and apparently had a good beach. Again, the beach/bay wasn't all that special, but lots cleaner than Phi Phi. It's nice for swimming, because it's a bay it's really calm - so long as you avoid the jet skis/boats/bouncy castle equipment! Patong seemed seedier than Koh Phi Phi, but I liked it better becuase it was middle aged (mostly men) being seedy, not people my age.
