My time in Patong Beach was one of the most memorable periods of my life. In this article I hope to share and reminisce on my time there with you, the reader. If I can convince any one of you to take the leap and travel to this remarkable paradise yourself, all the better. We’ll take a look at the specifics of the Patong Beach area, how an American goes about the visa question, and more in this brief adventure. Without further ado, let’s go back to my time at the Patong Beach Hotel!
The first thing you notice when you arrive in Patong Beach is the quaint brightness of the area. While the town of Patong Beach is, itself, busy enough that you won’t feel stranded in some remote areas, the gentle green forests surrounding Patong Beach provide a cool coastal calm that seeps throughout the surrounding space. All of this is to say that the area itself is gorgeous, from the unique and brightly-colored architecture of the town to where the pure white beaches meet the emerald sea.
For Americans hoping to visit Patong Beach or Thailand in general, the visa question is truly no issue. As long as you spend less than thirty days in Thailand as a whole, you will not require a visa. My stay in Patong Beach was a full two weeks and, though it wasn’t long enough to require a visa, I felt that this was more than enough time to enjoy and explore the surrounding area.
While in Patong Beach I stayed at the Patong Beach Hotel, a truly incredible center of hospitality. The staff were friendly and professional for the duration of my stay and the food was absolutely delicious! Though I enjoyed eating out in and around Patong Beach, it’s always nice to have the option of staying in and enjoying a quiet meal by oneself.
The room was spacious and brightly colored, making it impossible to go to bed and wake up without a smile on my face. The pool provided a quiet refuge away from the relative crowds of the town and beach, but the Patong Beach Hotel was close enough to still enjoy those destinations as well. Ultimately I could not have wished for a better place to stay during my time in Patong Beach and, if offered the chance, I would go back in a minute!
While everyone goes on vacation for different reasons, Patong Beach and the surrounding area seem to offer something for everyone. From the various outdoor activities in the forests and on the beach to the many dining and drinking establishments, everyone I saw was having a fantastic time. Including myself! Many travelers I encountered during my time on Patong Beach were bouncing needlessly around the country. Ultimately I found that Patong Beach provided just what I needed to finally relax.
