People don?t realize quite how big Phuket island is. In fact it?s the same size as Singapore, which gives you a better idea of the how big Phuket really is. So, where are the best places to stay in Phuket when you are on a golf holiday?
The west coast of the island is where all the major tourism areas lay. The most popular holiday destinations are Patong, Karon, Kata, Kamala, Surin, and Bang Tao.
If you are looking for an area that has the best nightlife, hundreds of restaurants and lots of shopping options in a centralized location, then Patong Beach is the one for you. Known as Phuket?s number one tourist destination, and with good reason, Patong is home to all the major hotel chains, a large beach and a vibrant atmosphere where anything can happen, and usually does. If you want to holiday in the heart of the action and don?t want to move too far to find everything you need, it doesn?t matter of you are a family or group of guys on a golfing holiday, because Patong is the one for you.
Karon and Kata
For those looking for something a little laidback, while still being within close proximity to beaches and restaurants, then Karon and Kata, both located south of Patong on the west coast are the ultimate choices. These two areas have fantastic beaches, cool nightlife options and lots of international restaurants. These two areas are great for groups of guys but are even better for those golfers traveling with their families for a Phuket holiday.
Surin, Kamala and Bang Tao
If you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil holiday, the three beachside tourism destinations to the north of Patong are Surin, Bang Tao and Kamala. These three locations have some of the best beaches on the island and are located in laidback villages that are still home to a great selection of restaurants and bars.
