5 Best Things to Do in Phuket at Night - Top 5 Nightlife Activities in Beach Mecca Phuket

Tipped to be one of the top beach hotspots in the 'Land of Smiles', Phuket is also a night owl's dream destination. Here are five activities every traveller can enjoy during a night out in this Thai beach capital.


Dance the Night Away

Much like the nation's capital, Thailand's most popular beach holiday destination is also home to a host of nightclubs and dance halls. Patong Beach is undoubtedly the place to be for those who are looking for the trendiest nightclubs in town as Illuzion Phuket is also found there. With the capacity to house more than five thousand revellers, it is arguably the largest nightclub in the area while other well-loved discos include the White Room Night Club in Soi Gonzo while Taipan Disco is another must-experience hub for those who wish to enjoy great music, state-of-the-art lighting systems, and a stellar atmosphere. Those based at Layan Residences by Anantara or any similar resort in Phuket will also find that most hotels have their own nightclubs or are within close range of a dance hall or two.


Catch a Show

Having been a fixture in Phuket since it showcased the first show back in 1991, the Simon Cabaret Show has become one of the island's most treasured nightlife experiences for tourists. Described as one of the most eclectic variety shows in all of Thailand, the Simon Cabaret Show encompasses nearly every facet of Thai folklore and culture while incorporating it with traditional and boundary-breaking performances. Some of the country's best-known stars are known to take part in this daily showcase, which is known for its humour as well as its over the top creativity.


Go Bar Hopping and Dining down Bangla Road

Considered one of the best ways to wine and dine when in Phuket, bar hopping down Bangla Road is a veritable rite of passage for first-time visitors. The 600-metre long stretch known as Bangla Road is not only home to Phuket's top restaurants but also its most friendly drinking holes. One can easily spend an entire night wining and dining on the street food, cocktails, and scrumptious meals on offer in Bangla Road's bars and eateries and still leave most of the area unexplored.


Rock Out to Live Music

Live music fans based in Phuket will find that Patong Beach is the ultimate destination for performances that are likely to leave an impression. Home to the now-iconic New York Live Music Bar, rock enthusiasts will find dynamic local and international bands taking the stage of this music haunt dedicated to hardcore hip-hop and rock music. Don't forget to pop by Hard Rock Cafe Phuket for its excellent drinks and memorable tunes!


Play Mini Golf

Those in search of a family-friendly night out in Phuket will find no finer alternative to the Dino Park Mini Golf centre. Serving as a golf course and a restaurant all rolled into one, the mini-golf course with Jurassic Park inspired obstacles provides holidaymakers with hours of fun and engagement.
