Phuket has a good range of shows to help fill your evenings with entertainment. The spectacular Fantasea show regularly wins the award for best tourist attraction in Thailand and is a must-see. There are also many ladyboy shows; Simon Cabaret being the Premier show in Phuket. Patong offers a wide variety of nightly entertainment for everyone’s desire whether it is a magic show or the dramatic stunt show.
Nightlife is really unique in Phuket, mostly in Patong Beach, but is also very active in Kata Beach and Karon Beach. Almost any beach has its bit of nightlife but 'Soi Bangla' is the hottest place on the island. Closing time is supposed to be 2am, but party always continues way beyond. Most popular night venues are the beer bars and the famous Go Go Bars, but also several Night Clubs and a very active gay nightlife at Soi Paradise, the Gay district in Patong.
