Phuket’s nightlife has something of a notorious reputation of being just for boys, particularly in Patong. To a certain extent, that reputation is deserved. However, that doesn’t mean girls will be stuck for something to do. Especially the girls who just want to have fun.

Our selection covers a variety of different kinds of nightlife attraction, so there is something for most tastes, whether you like to party hard or want to take it easy. Many of these venues also have special 'Ladies Night' promotions, which you can usually find on their Facebook pages. Each choice is far from the seedy image which is all-too-often the opinion of Phuket’s nightlife, ensuring a comfortable and safe night out with the girls.
