Tourists who are planning to visit Thailand often book a room in Novotel in Patong because it is situated in what is known as the resort island of the country, Phuket. The charm of Phuket lies not only in the internationally known parties but the offering of a unique culture and experiences for foreign travellers.
One of the most notable areas in Phuket is the Old Town which is surrounded with brightly-coloured terraces. Looking at it could make one think of being transported in Portugal instead of standing on a street in Asia. This is because the buildings around the area are mostly from the colonial era of the Sino-Portugese. This is one of the contributing factors to the rich culture of the province which is diverse as possible.
This location is quite common especially to the younger travellers who are looking for so-called Instagrammable shots. Local artists contribute to the beauty of the area with street art from talents such as RakkidKuanhavej, Alex Face and PhichitPaidaeng. For those who love shopping, strolling the streets on a Sunday night will give one the chance to experience the well-known street night market.
When it comes to experience, tourists should not miss the Hanuman World but warning should be given beforehand to those who are weak of heart as this is not something to be taken lightly. There are four kinds of experiences available which vary depending on a person’s fear of heights. If you are not fond of hanging on a wire mid-air, you could opt to visit the sky walk to enjoy the nature.
Daring souls should not miss the zipline which is known to be the longest at 400 meters with the longest drop measuring 40 meters. Another type is the roller zipline which is tagged as the fastest swerving zipline in the country spanning 800 meters.
Tourists who are staying at Novotel in Patong should also visit the Big Buddha located in the middle of Kata and Karon Beach. From there, move on to the Phromthep Cape which is one of the most photographed locations in the island.
