I wasn't going to write a review but I feel I should as some of the other reviews are complete tripe.
First of all its a great place to party, forget all the European hotshots for banging parties, this is the place!
Great bars, clubs and massage salons. Lots of tasty cafes and restaurants for food. The beach itself is very clean with white sand and although the water isn't as clean as some others in the area it is certainly comparable with many European beaches and definately not a 'cesspool' as some are saying.
Many people from around the world all looking for fun. As for someone saying many Russians that don't want to mix or have fun that's just bizarre. And went with my gf who is Russian and we mix with everyone, and have Australian friends who we met with most days we were there.

The bottom line is if you like to party and have a good time then it's the place for you.
If you don't want to party then don't go, no one is holding a gun to your head! ;)

Thank Rick G

Patong is near Phuket town the big hotspot for entertainment. Surrounded by hills it is located at the west coast of the island.
The city is always busy at the street. Keep a good eye on the traffic flow when you cross the street. Full with tourists on rented motorbikes, mixed with high number of overpriced TukTuk taxis the general traffic makes the town noisy. But there are also a big number of Restaurants, fantastic hotels and a sandy Beach which is 4 kilometers long. Please avoid to use Jetskis or Parasails. In many cases there are no insurances or standard security reasons are simply ignored. The beach itself is wide spacious. Also are some massage tents on some points.

Patong beach is what you would expect from a large beach destination. Nice sand, lots of activities and a backdrop of restaurants and shopping to create a great destination.
