Kathu Sub-District

Phuket Travel Guide | This attractive district offers a wide range of activities as well as interesting historical landmarks that attract millions of visitors every year. Kathu covers three big sub-districts including the world-famous Patong. The district is located on the west of the island and covers 67 square kilometres with wide smooth roads and shortcuts making it convenient to access the other areas of the island.

While Kathu (city) itself is to be considered a residential area with affordable housing and condominiums scattered throughout, the coastal city of Patong is mostly tourist-oriented, with a vast selection of hotels and resorts, international restaurants, nightclubs, and everything you would expect from a seaside town. Kamala,once a quiet Muslim fishing village, still maintains a sense of tranquillity and is ideal for those who prefer a relaxing beach environment.
