Phuket red-light

Bangla Walking Street in Patong is the closest you can come to the more famous Walking Street in Pattaya, without actually getting there.

Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and was visited by 8.4 million tourists in 2017. This number is estimated to increase, and 30 new hotels with more than 6,000 rooms are planned to open within 2020.

Not surprisingly are there many beer bars, go-go bars, massage salons and massage parlours on the island, especially in the towns in the south:

  • Patong is a small town at the south-west coast. It has a lovely beach and the highest concentration of massage salons on the island.
  • Phuket City is the main town of Phuket island and located at the south-east coast. Although not so hot as Patong, Phuket City has the highest concentration of body-to-body massage parlours on the island.
