The Gay Scene can be found around the Royal Paradise hotel in Patong and takes place at a small side road of the famous Rat-U-Thit Road. From Soi Bangla it is only about 300 meters walk. Should you consider staying overnight at a gay hotel, this is the place to be. There are not only Gay Hotels in this area, but also Gay Bars, clubs and a discotheque with two shows per evening. The gay community is very strong around the paradise complex and is becoming an upward trend.
One of the highlights while coming to Patong and a must see is of course the Simon Cabaret show, which is probably the biggest and most famous Transvestite-Show in Phuket. Here you can enjoy professional dancing, music and singing. The main attractions are the ladyboys, which the Simon Cabaret show is most famous for. Performing a glitzy, glamorous and highly professional show you won’t be able to tell the difference between those beauties which are a lady or a man.
Another very entertaining possibility is the Phuket Fantasea, a show with a touch of Las Vegas. With acrobatics, spectacular fireworks, air ballet, special effects and disappearing elephants, the whole show is a mixture of visual effects and elements of Thai tradition. The fantasea show is located in kamala a 20 minutes ride from Patong. You can either purchase tickets only for the show or for both show and buffet. Phuket Fantasea is a suitable for the whole family.
The Dino Park is located half way between Kata Beach and Karon Beach and it is a perfect experience for a family excursion. The dinosaurs appear very real and the fake volcano spits fire and smoke. Furthermore the dino park provides a bar and a restaurant where you will be served one of the best burgers in the area.
Push the gas pedal to the limit and enjoy the race track in Kathu, close to Patong.
