Trying to choose a holiday destination is never an easy job. As the saying goes, the world is getting smaller, which offers so much more in the way of choice, than those who looked to get away a few decades ago.
A good idea is to head somewhere that offers as many different activities covering a wide range of interests, especially if not travelling solo. It guarantees that everyone can remain happy. One such way of ensuring that you achieve this is to head to a hotel close to Patong Beach in Phuket, Thailand.
Booking a quality hotel within a short stroll of the beach will have views and the best of facilities of their own, maybe even toning up in an aqua gym before revealing the torse when wishing to venture and finding things to do.
Alternatively, enjoying the sea air and enjoying delicious local seafood from the wide range of meals available or sitting in a pool bar sipping cocktails before moving on to a night lounge to chill out with more libation. A kids club can be available at the best 4-star accommodation along with other activities to try out, including Thai cooking courses.
There are huge bonuses when the hotel is 4-star, assuring visitors of a great rest each evening, because the area around Patong Beach has several ways of expending energy and to offer a fantastic time.
1. Stunning Patong Beach itself, sat by the beautiful Andaman Sea with 3km of golden sands might be all that you need, preferring relaxing than getting involved in other activities. Just a few yards from food and drink and other vital amenities it is a great place to chill out and feel the rays. For the slightly more adventurous a short jaunt to Freedom Beach sitting by tall coconut trees might be the ticket, maybe while a partner heads off for a round of golf at a quality course.
2. Bangla Road, with its numerous bars and restaurants leads all the way to the waterfront. Its nightlife regarded highly by those looking to have fun once the sun goes down providing a party atmosphere with something for everyone, along with the modern Jung ceylon Mall for those looking for a shopping fix.
3. For those who have always fancied surfing but would prefer to try it out first in a safe environment, then Surf House is a good option. Or by night a quality hotel will provide ways to head out and enjoy one of the night shows Phuket has to offer.
4. Water activities like parasailing or jet skiing are extremely popular and readily available at Patong Beach, with taking off and landing on the sand all year round proving safe and enjoyable. Heading out to water can be provided for one or two-person jet skis.
