The music pub “Rock City” in Patong Beach on Thailand’s biggest island Phuket is a great night location for long nights and many beers. Every evening AC/DC, Metallica and other hard rock cover bands play great live music. The draught pint’s go away like water and the cocktails are famous here in Patong direct on the beach road. Rock City in Phuket opens early for good western breakfast and close late in night for night owls who looking for Party, nightlife and Rock music. The friendly and sexy staff team brings from while to while Tequila shots and vodka rounds to the tourists and they are always happy if you invite them to drink one with you together. Rock City on the beach street in Patong is my favorite pub and nightlife bar here in this crazy city in south Thailand. We had a lot of fun while our visits here at this great live music pub and event location on our holiday 2006 and during our travel tour through south and central Thailand.
The On On Hotel is direct in the center of the capital of Thailand‘s Phuket Province. The Guest Houseat the south offer old but nice rooms with charme for a good backpacker price. We paid on our Thailand Travel Tour 06300 Thai Baht for a two bed room with a own bathroom and a fan. Around the Guest House, next to a Chinese Shrine, are many Restaurants and Bar’s which are easy to reach by foot. The Friendly staff team of the On On Hotel are really helpful for travel trips and tips around Phuket and whole South East Asia. The building are in Chinese and Portuguese architecture and have a bit of end time feeling. The rooms at On On accommodation are famous from the movie “The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio as the main actor. At the Hotel desk you can rent Motorbikes to explore the city in your individual style. As well they offer Travel Tours around Thailandand connections to many destinations in Asia. I can recommend this cosy Hostel for Backpacker who want to feel the flair of an old but beautiful Guest House with atmosphere for a good price. For more possibilities of accommodation take a look in your Southeast Asian TravelGuide. If you check in here be shire that your privacy are not that important for you.Because of the thin walls and the simple wood floor you will here every step of your neighbour here in Phuket City.

Try as well the Massage and the Spa service of the hotel, here you can relax and enjoy your holiday without compromises! If you travel on budget Travel Tour I can recoment the “Touch Villa” Guest House in Patong Beach.
On the end of the th Bangla Road in a small street is the touch villa Guest House located. The small and cozy garden is surrounded of two rows of clean and nice rooms with Air Con/Fan, own hot water shower, TV and a big fridge.

You can walk as well the Th hat Patong to the beach and the warm water of the Andaman Sea. This Guest House is one of my favorites in Asia, not just because of the price. Try the good service of this good address for accommodation on Patong on Koh Phuket. Be surprised what you can except for a cheap price in this busy town in South Thailand.
My first time in Patong Beach was in April 2006, I was here with a friend for holidays. We was staying in the first-class Hotel “Phuket Graceland”. On the two weeks vacation we made what the busiest city on Phuket offer: Party, Party and again Party. Nearly every day we had some Chang Beers at “Rock City” before we was going to the Bangla Road Walking Street in the Heart of Patong. My second time i stayed about one week on my Thailand travel tour with Marius at the “Touch Villa” guest house which we found in our Lonely Planet travel book. We comes from Phuket Town with a Bus, it took us about one hour. Touch Villa offer simple but good rooms with fridge, tv, air-con and hot water for backpacker prices. Many traveler make a stop in this hostel on their Southeast Asia travel tour.
At the “Bangla Road” there are many discos, pubs, massage shops, restaurants and Thai Girl Bars. Many male tourists from Europe and America come here for cheap sex with young Thai girls. Young means a bit over 18. It looks straight when the old sex-tourists walk at long the beach with the young bar girls. But if you stay longer here it becomes normal in this abnormal city in Thailand. At daytime the Th Bangla sleep, when the sun goes down the walking street wake up! The neon light is the sunrise of Patong on Phuket. Loud Music, thousands prostitutes and drunken tourists dominate the picture of Patong City at night.
But Patong offer more than Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll! I did my Padi Open Water Diver here. The Open Water is the first scuba diving license of the Padi education System. I did it in 3 days, the first day was just theory and swimming pool. In the pool we did some underwater diving skills. On the second day I did my first Open Water Dive in the Andaman Sea at Patong Bay. All in all i did four dives during my Padi Open Water. On day three we did three dives. The dive sites was: Banana Bay, Bungalow Bay and The Home Run Bay at Racha Yai. I did my Padi license whit the “Scuba Cat” Dive School at Patong Beach.
This city is for shure not a typical backpacker or traveler destination. But if you decide to stay here plan a bit more money than on your other travel destinations because Patong is expansive compared to other regions of Thailand. From here we took a bus to Phang Nga.
Marius and I was coming, on our Travel Tour 2006 with the ferry from Phi Phi Island. When we arrived we took a taxi from the pier to the On On Hotel in the center of Phuket Town which we found in our Lonely Planet Thailand travel book. The On On Hotel was coulisse for the movie “The Beach” with L. Di Caprio. This old Chinese guest house have a good choice of fan rooms with own and share bathrooms. We paid in 2006 300 Thai Baht for a room with a toilet per night. On the reception you can book tours and transport to many destinations in Thailand and southeast Asia.
The most of the tourists who come here are coming for a day trip from the busy beaches of Phukets west coast. The public busses leaving from the Bus terminal in Phuket City to all touristic beaches on Thailands biggest island. The public bus to the International Airport on Phuket start here as well. The most tourists and backpacker come for shopping on the market or in the Robinson Ocean Plaza shopping mall. We stayed her two nights and was watching some sights. Close to the On On Hotel in Thailand is the Chinese Shrine of the Serene Light. It’s a small shrine with many flair. Like every Chinese temple this shrine in Phuket Town is decorated with many dragons and other holy statues.
On our last day here at this city in southeast Asia we walked up to the top of a hill near the center of Phuket Town. From here we had a nice view over the city to the andaman sea. The Capital of the Thailands biggest city offer many posibilities for shopping, i can recoment a visit to this City in southeast Asia for all people who are bored of the buisy beaches on the west side of this island. The Center have many point of interesting and beautiful Chinese Temples. The posibilities for dinner and activities are nearly endless over here compared to other cities in Thailand. For all backpackers and travelers who stay on the island it´s a good stop to relax from the trouble on the rest of Phuket in the Andaman Sea.
