The atmosphere and culture of a place can be seen shifting as the day turns into the night. When you’re on a trip, you often spend the day time looking at the local museums, tourist spots, parks, etc. These Phuket Nightlife places are packed with people at night. But that doesn’t mean the streets are empty at night. In many cases, the situation can be quite the opposite.
Some places are famous for their fun and wild nighttime activities. Most of these places are bars, clubs, cocktail parties, discotheques, etc. Not just the tourists, even the locals enjoy these nighttime activities since they get to relax after a stressful day at work.
