We start to make our way to Ranong Road via Thalang Road on our last day in Phuket Town.

We also visited the wet market before boarding the bus for Patong.

The buses are clustered along Ranong Road. There are buses to Kata, Chalong and Patong. A taxi to Patong from Phuket would cost roughly 400 THB. In comparison, a bus to Patong cost only 25 THB! Take note that all buses depart and return to Phuket Town only (i.e. there is not direct public bus from Patong to Chalong.)

The ride from Phuket Town would pass by Central Festival, a huge shopping mall before heading to the hills. Phuket Town and Patong is separated by a hill area in between, but it also meant that you would have a beautiful entry towards Patong as it starts to drive down towards the beach.

From a higher elevation, you could see a pristine (but crowded) beach forming a backdrop to the town of Patong.

There is rather big mosque in Patong which you would see as the bus makes its way into Patong, it’s the Cok Makam Musyid Mosque (also known as Patong Mosque).

We spent a night in Patong at the Royal Phawadee Village Resort.
