Patong Nightlife, Phuket – Bangla Road Walk October 2016
A video of a full walk up Bangla Road, Patong at 10pm.
Bangla Road is the centre of nightlife for the popular Thai holiday destination that is Phuket.
It’s a great place for bar hopping, with many regular bars, beer bars, gogo bars, live music bars and nightclubs all on one street!
There were lots of touts for the bars this year, but if you walk with a beer in hand or a camera then generally they leave you alone.
This video was from early October, before the big news to hit Thailand on 13 October.

This video was made in early October so it was still before the high season and was relatively quiet and the drinks prices were low.
I actually don’t mind visiting Patong during the low/mid season as the bars are quieter and the hotels are much cheaper. The weather can be a lottery and nights out can potentially be a washout (as you will see from upcoming videos).
