Patong Beach


If you are looking for a cheap drink, look no further than Patong Beach.  This place is overflowing with hundred of bars - beer bars, "Katoey" bars, gay bars, girl bars...  Thaat being said, we did not spend too much time here as we really found it a vile, sleazy "tourist hell!"


We did, however, like some of the signs and the names of the bars, "Boom Boom Bar," "The Tiger Bar," "Soi Eric," and "Durty Munger" caught our attention.  What the heck is a munger?  As Madonna once said in an interview on 20/20, look it up.


Ultimately, our recommendation is to stick to the beach and the relatively safe confines of your own resort!  But what to drink?  Aside from some rather watered down cocktails, this is beer territory, with most outlets touting either Singha or Chang.  So drink up, and if you are feeling like joining the masses, be sure to buy one of those mass-produced souvenir T-shirts you'll see just about everywhere in Thailand!
