1. Participate in local festivities
We arrived during the Loi Krathong Festival. Too bad we were not able to witness the floating lanterns (Darn! There was one single lantern up in the sky though). Performances along the beach and Bangla road are available. Not to mention the colorful decorations all over town were beautiful. Take note: we didn’t pay anything at all.
2. Thai Massage
I’m a sucker for a good relaxing massage. There are lots of spa nearby the beach. Prices starts from 250 Baht. It also depends on what kind of massage you want.

3. Food Trip!
This was the shopping and food bazaar in Bangla road during Loi Krathong.
|My all time favorite Thai dessert: Mango with sticky rice – 80 Baht|
|Reminds me of gulaman and buko pandan.|
One of the random food joints that we stumbled upon…
|Hindi sulit! Ang konti ng serving|
5. Night Clubs
Night life in Patong is ALIVE and WILD!
6. Island Hopping
|Make sure when booking a day trip of island hopping, know the exact details.|
|If you have your own snorkeling gear, bring it. Tours charge it per hour.|
I just made up the name. I saw this in one area of the mini bars in Patong. It’s like you strike the nail hard, the deeper it goes through the wood, you win (?!) If anyone knows how this game goes, I stand corrected.
8. Pingpong Show
Curiosity killed the cat (I’m the cat).
Lots of activities to choose from, really! There’s go-kart racing, ATV trekking, para-sailing, jet ski and speed boat rentals. If you want a tailor-made yet affordable suits and formal dresses that will be ready within 24 hours, they have it. My husband got his pants and shirt there.
