What to do During the Day at Patong Beach
While it is best known for its hard-partying nightlife, Patong Beach also has many other activities that appeal to a huge range of interests. Whether you’re into sports or just want to relax at the spa, Patong will be able to please you.
Phuket Wake Park
Phuket Wake Park features a freshwater lake that is ideal for cable skiing. All the necessary equipment can be rented right here, and the speed varies according to the customer’s wishes. It is quite safe and monitored by experienced staff members. This is a great adventure and is a bit of a challenge, too. Come alone or as a group any day from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. It is located near Kathu Waterfall.
If speed is in your blood, you can show off your moves at the local go kart track. Patong Go-Kart Speedway has single and double karts and all the safety equipment you will need. There is a restaurant on site and even a spectator area, so you’ll have some people to impress. The track is open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is located on the main road in Kathu.
Zorbing at Rollerball
Zorbing means rolling over a hilly track in large plastic ball – truly an interesting activity to enjoy in Patong. Great for families, friends, and individuals alike, Rollerball offers zorbing every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It’s located on a road not far from Orchid Hotel and Spa in Kalim.
The Flying Hanuman is an amazing experience. Safe for you and the environment, the Flying Hanuman is a zip line that lets you glide over the jungle and see the island in a whole new way. You will be forty meters in the air and traveling fast over the lush forest in Kathu, not too far from the waterfall.
What better setting for yoga than gorgeous Phuket?
