Patong Beach is a lovely curve of sand inside a bay on the western side of Phuket Island. It has several large resorts and hotels as well as smaller guesthouses. The streets are thronged with tourists and there are many shops, restaurants and bars. This town has an exceptional number of massage parlors and Go-Go bars featuring scantily clad young women. Unfortunately, these jobs are practically their only way to earn much money.
