Any beach-centric vacation needs to include plans to watch the sunset, and what better way to watch it than with a cocktail in hand overlooking an amazing view? The best place to get exactly this is at sunset bars, which are abundant across Phuket. Hang out with your better half or your best friends with some drinks and get ready to post some pretty pictures on your social media that others will envy. Some popular sunset bars in Phuket include After Beach Bar, Wassa Homemade Bar, and KEE Sky Lounge.
Phuket has numerous night markets that you can visit, and this is one of the “where to go in Phuket at night” options that are family-friendly. Browse through numerous stalls that sell items like clothing,shoes, fashion accessories, and other items (probably mostly imitation goods). Most importantly, many also have street food stalls that you can visit to buy yummy goodies to fill your stomach. Well-known Phuket night markets include Chillva Market, Phuket Weekend Market, and OTOP Night Market.
Especially at Bangla Road, go-go bars are everywhere, and more prominently along Soi Sea Dragon. The go-go bar experience includes sexy dancers up on platforms entertain visitors, patrons themselves dancing, and plenty of alcohol, so this is definitely an adults-only nightlife option. The most famous go-go bar in the Patong area is probably Suzy Wong’s, though Devil’s Playground (which is actually also known as Suzy Wong’s 2) is also gaining in popularity.
If you’re going out with a group of adults that love to party, then it’ll be a shame if you skip the Phuket clubbing scene. There is a wide variety of clubs in Patong that are absolutely rocking, though you can also opt to go to beach clubs for an outdoor experience instead. Clubs that are usually filled up with a good mix of locals and tourists include Illuzion, Sugar Club, and Sound, while popular beach clubs include the likes of Paradise Beach Club and Xana Beach Club.
Phuket’s most famous ladyboys performance show is something you must make a point to go to when in the region. Simon Cabaret is not the only cabaret show in Phuket, but it’s definitely the most well-known. A spectacle of glitz, glamour, music, colours, and visual effects, the cabaret show is an international one that incorporates elements from different countries. It’s best if you visit yourself to understand what we are talking about!
Another family-friendly option other than the Phuket night markets, Phuket Fantasea and Siam Niramit are variety shows which you can enjoy with your loved ones of all ages. Phuket Fantasea opens as early as 5.30 p.m, and if you go early you can go around different types of stalls with games and things to buy. There’s even a dinner buffet option before the show that guests say is pretty good in online reviews. Siam Niramit also has similar carnival and dining offerings pre-show, but their 70-minute show is more cultural in nature, providing a good glimpse into Thai religious beliefs, arts, and history.
This may be a strange addition to your “what to do in Phuket at night” list, but not everything in Phuket has to revolve around adult entertainment or performances. Indulge in some sports instead by going to Muay Thai fight at one of Phuket’s many arenas, including Tiger Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Art Camp, Sinbi Muay Thai, Suwit Muay Thai Camp, and Rawai Supa Muay Thai. Enjoy the thrill of the pre-fight dance that the fighters perform in front of their trainers, and later feel your adrenaline pumping as you watch fighters spar each other with high kicks, elbow thrusts, and other quick, strong martial art movements.
