Holiday in Thailand then walking past Bangla Road, the core of Patong’s nightlife, you’ll reach Patong Promenade – the 40,000sqm ultra-modern shopping mall must visit during your next holiday in Thailand. Enriched with around 20 retail stores and restaurants, this mall took 700 million baht to come on this giant format.
Since it was a big amount to cover by one investor, naturally 5 different business groups handled everything to make this dreamlike complex project real.
Granted, it’s situated behind 2 nightclubs, but the calmness and serenity it provides are attainable nowhere. So, whenever you get exhausted by the daily din of the outside crowds, Patong Promenade can be a perfect place for relaxation.
Turning just the opposite, you’ll see a wide array of restaurants and shops, more specifically, it’s the Sixth Phuket. Playing with color, the architects have finalized the appearance of this shopping zone, mostly to imitate the Sino-Portuguese design. Many of the places have a Middle-Eastern slope that indicates the starting of Patong’s vast Arabic quarter.
Some stores selling T-shirt and flip-flops will be at the Rat-U-Thit entrance, where you can opt for a tattoo in case you’re cherishing the idea from long ago. An exotic feeling begins to prevail once you step inside the mall. The high ceilings produce a roomy vibe all around and with the ‘cobblestone’ effect underfoot, the effect just becomes double.
On the other hand, the ‘Sixth Phuket’, situated behind the Patong Promenade. It contains 19 illuminated Sino-Portuguese shop-houses forming an L. It also took a huge amount to get developed, but so much if compared to the Patong Promenade. With an expenditure of 30-million baht, bunches of cafés, banks, boutiques, and restaurants are made to hold their position in the ‘Sixth Phuket’. Apart from that, it’s given an oriental flavor by comprising Lebanese Flower Restaurant, Sorana Massage parlor, Summer Wind Restaurant, Al Basha Restaurant and Mafia fashion amidst the arena.
