where we stayed
We stayed at the Lub d Phuket Patong hostel! Voted Best New Hostel in the world showcasing an outdoor swimming pool and large terrace where you can enjoy a few cocktails & beers while hanging out with other travelers. It is located in Patong with just a casual 2-minute walk to the beach. Hit the nightclubs & bars on Bangla road in the evenings with a 5-minute walk as well.
what we packed
We recommend bringing lightweight, breathable clothing, sunscreen, insect repellent, comfortable walking shoes, swimwear, and any necessary medications. Feel free to check out our amazon storefront!
how to get around
Taxis, tuk-tuks, and songthaews (shared taxis) are readily available, but it's essential to negotiate the fare in advance. Additionally, renting a scooter or motorbike can give you more freedom to explore the island at your own pace. For island hopping or reaching beaches that are only accessible by water, long-tail boats or speedboats are available for hire at various piers and beaches.
