Karon

Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
You'll get in some beach time at Patong Beach and Karon Beach. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Bang Tao Beach will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Karon: Talat Yai (Sangtham Shrine & Phuket Trickeye Museum), Maithon Island (Honeymoon Island) (in Rawai) and Phuket Town (Kayaking & Canoeing, Monkey Hill, & more). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Big Buddha Phuket, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kata Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Yanui Beach, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

Sydney, Australia to Karon is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Sydney to Karon due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Sydney in June, expect Karon to be much warmer, temps between 37°C and 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel to Mai Khao.

The vast stretches of beach in Mai Khao, once a nesting area for the giant leatherback turtle, are home to various aquatic and relaxation activities.
Relax by the water at Mai Khao Beach and Naiyang Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and Wat Phra Thong. Take a break from Mai Khao with a short trip to Sky Club Asia in Pa Khlok, about 34 minutes away. Spend the 17th (Mon) exploring nature at Sirinat National Park. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 21st (Fri) at Splash Jungle Waterpark. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Nai Thon Beach, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take some stellar pictures from Takeoff Landing, and see King Power Phuket Airport.
