Suzy Wongs in Patong

What can I tell you that you have not already read about 
on the Internet about Patong?

A visit is certainly an eye opener for many of us - but not everybody.  So I asked my good friend Russell (of Sunset Bar) where he takes his guests in Patong to see a few different things.

Suzy Wongs was the answer, clean and 
they do not rip you off for the drinks.

There are many bars here - here's a map
go and ask Russell on facebook to take you.

No I have not been here... but I did visit

Does Tripadvisor have a section on what to do in Patong
with a price list?

Soi Rommani Phuket Town

This is a small side street between Thalang Road and Debuk Road in Phuket Town.

I believe that it used to be a 'hang out' for the 'less desirable' of Phuket.

There has been something of a make over to this little Soi in Phuket Town and it is now a wonderful myriad of small bars / cafes and guest houses.  The architecture is stylish and some of the buildings are tastefully decorated and the cafe / bars are welcoming and full of character - definitely worth a visit.
(Note the different spellings)

This may be what you are looking for if you simply want to hang out somewhere.

I did.

Bang Neow Chinese Shrine

This is a readily accessible Chinese Shrine in Phuket Town.  I visited Bang Neow Shrine with my daughter whilst Clinic Kong were printing photographs for my visa.

Bang Neow was very quiet in the middle of the afternoon which allowed me to take some close ups. The shrine is always a wonderful place to visit. We have been here before.
