Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Shop till you drop at Jungceylon and Suit Master. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Nai Harn Beach. Take a break from Karon with a short trip to CentralFestival Phuket in Wichit, about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Phuket Big Buddha, kick back and relax at Patong Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kata Beach, and make a trip to Bangla Road.

You can plan Karon trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Sydney, Australia to Karon is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of flight, bus, and taxi. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Sydney to Karon due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Sydney in December: high temperatures in Karon hover around 36°C and lows are around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Nai Yang.
