Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Head to Jungceylon and Bob Collectionfor plenty of shopping. Get outdoors at Patong Beach and Karon Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Karon side-trips: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Phuket Town) and CentralFestival Phuket (in Wichit). Spend the 2nd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Phuket Big Buddha, make a trip to Bangla Road, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and stop by Anthony's Boutique Karon Beach.
