Sunset at Phuket's Patong Beach + an easy-peasy beach outfit

By 12:30 Tuesday 5 June 2018 ,

If you ever visit Phuket while you're still young, Patong is the place where you should be spending your maximum time. It is most definitely the naughtiest and the most happening part of the town with the kind of stuff you only see in those dreamy travel shows on the television. There's a beautiful beach where you can relax with a couple of cans of Singha, soak in the sun or hire a motor boat if you're up for some action.

Speaking of action, Patong is bustling with massage parlours and since the competition is so stiff, each massage parlour has a string of beautiful masseuses outside their entrances, trying to lure pedestrians in to get the world famous Thai "massage". After sunset, the famous Bangla Night Market comes to life with acrobats, jugglers, colourful parades, beatboxers, dancers, and open bars with their chairs spilling out on to the road. The street is lined with scandalous bars and eateries with music blaring at full volumes. You'd even get a glimpse of half-naked pole dancers as you walk along this chaotic street. Five minutes of strolling later on this mad, mad street, I witnessed 'night life' in the realest sense possible, even though the noise {and the nakedness of everything} made me quite uncomfortable. 

Coming back to my favourite part of the stay- the beach. We spent our first evening in Phuket at the popular Patong beach and were just in time for the sunset. The skies of Patong are as naughty as its streets and kept us entertained with its changing colours. There are a lot of good-looking bars and eateries around the beach, and much to my surprise, almost all of them had Indian food on the menu.

Here's a little glimpse of the evening I spent at the beach, without any filters:

Outfit-wise, I chose a pair of 'skorts' with an embroidered halter top. I wanted to wear something comfortable that allowed me to enjoy the water and yet wasn't too skimpy. Actually, this had been my entire strategy while packing my bags for Thailand: keeping clothes that were beachy and cute but didn't cause any outrage by my parents. You'll find links to similar pieces at the end of the post!

I had a lovely time with my family on this particular evening and wanted to document it on the blog for no particular reason. But I do hope this little recommendation comes in handy whenever you visit Phuket next.

See you in the next post!
