Tips from the community

Notoriously known for its rowdy party scene, the heart of the Songkran festivities in the Phuket province will be in Patong Beach. The infamous nightclub and bar-lined Bangla Road will be pedestrianised, and at night the party truly comes alive – be prepared to party until dawn! The beaches nearby will be full of sunbathers, sandcastle competitions, live music, and even a Miss Songkran Beauty Pageant. For a slightly less rowdy (but nonetheless, just as wet) celebration, head into the colourful Phuket Old Town. Before the party starts, head up early one morning to the Big Buddha, a 45-meter-tall white jade marble adorned statue of the Buddha – the tallest sitting Buddha in all of Thailand. Offering not only amazing 360-degree views of the Phuket province, you’ll also find local monks performing traditional chants, prayers, and performing Buddha statue bathing rituals.   Burasari Phuket – This boutique resort is a totally affordable option, located just a few steps from the party of Patong Beach. Book a Bed Poshtel – Not quite a hostel, not quite a hotel, this friendly, laidback, and unique accommodation gives you the option of either a private room or a shared dorm. Complete with a nice pool and garden area, Book a Bed Poshtel is located just moments away from the heart of Phuket Old Town.
