    Best Places to Go at Night in Kamala Beach

    Regarding nightlife, Kamala Beach may not be the most buzzing resort town on Phuket Island’s west coast but it hosts enough cool venues to satisfy mellow partygoers, the other could go to party a 10-minute drive south, at Patong Beach. The best night spots in Kamala include the most popular cultural show on the island: Phuket Fantasea, which everyday attracts thousands of visitors in its large Disneyland-like complex.

    The other interesting nightlife entertainment venues in Kamala present an eclectic choice of stylish and opulent lounges located in five-star resorts, an unpretentious and friendly beer garden, two sport bars and pubs, and a cool rock ‘n’ roll bar; Kamala is pretty quiet yet it has enough quality venues to entertain its visitors at night.

    Phuket FantaSea is a large entertainment complex located toward the northern end of Kamala Beach. Opened in 1998, Phuket Fantasea presents the biggest Thai cultural show in Phuket; the superb 3,000-seater Palace of the Elephants Theatre, inspired by an ancient stone palace of the pre-Sukhothai era, presents a daily show (closed on Thursdays) featuring hundreds of comedians, dancers, and acrobats, elephants and other animals on its 37m wide stage. The show blends Thai historical and cultural elements with fantasy, and is the most popular ‘man-made’ attraction in Phuket.

    The complex also hosts two restaurants (Golden Kinnaree and Suriyamas), and a park featuring – in the same vein as Disneyland parks – boutiques, handicraft demonstrations, beer gardens, tiger feeding, giant Mekong catfish feeding, safari adventure walk, and much more. Phuket FantaSea is a must-see attraction for the whole family in Kamala. Read More...
