General Information

    Phuket's most popular resort town is Patong Beach, about 45 minutes drive southwest from the airport. This well-developed tourist resort caters to huge numbers of visitors from around the world, but seems to appeal especially to Europeans. There are only a half dozen hotels right on the beach, the rest spread back across the main beach road (the layout is very similar to Pattaya). Nearby Phuket Town is filled with Sino-Portuguese architectural treasures: beautiful old shophouses and mansions built by Phuket's wealthy merchants. Sun-splashed weather, fresh seafood feasts, and carefree nights bathed in an ocean breeze is the lifestyle enjoyed here.

    Phuket's gay nightlife is mostly centered in the sprawling Paradise Complex, a couple of blocks back from the ocean on the second major road that parallels the beach. This rather ugly beehive of concrete shophouses has been colorfully colonized by Phuket's gay community and there are lots of bars, restaurants, guesthouses and shops here as well as the popular gay disco, Boat Bar.

    Phuket's population is over 300,000 and growing (that's over 12,000 Utopians, not counting the tourists).

        Not gay, but lots of bare-chested Thai dancers (sit close) in an over-the-top pageant spectacular featuring an on-stage rain storm, bungee-jumping trapeze artists, a herd of 30 elephants, explosives and Thai dance mixed into an incomprehensible camp sampler, fittingly subtitled "Culture Illusion Show."
