Patong,...If you are going to Patong in Phuket,i suggest you to go to Koh Phangnan, Koh Phi Phi or Ao Nang. More beautiful than Patong. Patong is quite dirty now. Polluted. Well, i would suggest you to take a coach from Bangkok. It will be more fun and you can see more places and things.
From Bangkok, you can just buy a ticket from any agencies in Khaosan Rd or Rambutri Road area to those places. They will pick you up from your guesthouse. And you will arrive there the next morning.
Have a nice trip!

It will be rainy season around Phuket in May through until November. I would suggest the direr weather around the Gulf of Thailand areas. If you want nightlife you can try Pattaya or Koh Samui. Koh Samui is an idea because you can then go to snorkel or scuba on Koh Tao. The weather in the Gulf region is much better than down south between May and November.
