Karon, Phuket

— 5 nights
Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Family-friendly places like Karon View Point and Yanui Beach will thrill your kids. Step off the beaten path and head to Surf House Phuket - Kata Beach and Promthep Cape. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Karon: Phuket Town (Kayaking & Canoeing & Monkey Hill). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Patong Beach, stroll through The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GRP), don't miss a visit to Bangla Road, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Big Buddha Phuket.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
