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 Bob Collection. We've included these beaches for you: Patong Beach and Kata Beach. Spend the 17th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Phuket Big Buddha, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, look for gifts at Suit Master, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Naka Market.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Karon vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Karon is an approximately 19.5-hour combination of flight, bus, and taxi. You can also do a combination of flight, ferry, and car.
