    We love visiting this viewpoint. We always hire motorbikes and take a ride through Kata and up the hill to the viewpoint. There is a nice cafe on the way up the hill on the left that serves cakes, coffees and shakes. Z
    Often at the viewpoint you can pay to have amazing photos holding a white falcon, and you can see amazing views of the beaches along the coast towards Kata and Karon. Great photo point on a clear day.

    Imagine a tropical beach. DUH! gentle beach break. No rocks. Spectacular sunsets. Amenities are there, but low profile.

    We were on the other side of the hill so this beach was quite a hot, steep walk but it was worth it – just! It has a lot going for it with beautiful sand and fairly calm seas.

    It can get busy but you can usually find a bit of shade somewhere out of the way and enjoy the gentle breeze. There are sun loungers for hire with umbrellas which is good and lots of traders to sell you just about anything you want.

    There are some water sports as well so if you feel more Energetic you can do this.

    I visited the market while on a trip with five other family members. From an eleven year old to 50+. It was quite a way out of town from Kata where we were staying but worth the visit. There are some lovely temple buildings with lots of locals and local activities. There was a stage with dancing groups including a local school performing with lovely Thai music.
    The market stalls themselves were selling the same things you find everywhere else, fake goods, beach wear, souvenirs etc but there are lots of stalls to choose from. There are quite a lot of food and drink options all selling nice Thai food lots of which is made while you watch. Lovely fresh fruit smoothies too at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
    Unlike some Thai night markets there is no alcohol allowed at the temple market.
    There are plenty of other shops and restaurants in the area too.

    I stayed at Karon beach for seven nights. The beach itself is really long, at least 3km. Plenty of space to spread out, but lifeguards are only stationed at a few areas. Beware of swimming outside of the watched areas, as rip currents are common. Red flags were out for most or all of at least 4 of the days I was here. The town area itself is not large, a pretty easy walk from one end to the other, walking along the sea. Many hotels for all budgets here. Restaurants were pretty predictably similar, which was a disappointment for me, but if you are here for seafood, you will get your fill. Just very little real Thai food available. Search the back streets for a som tam or pad thai cart, if you want some cheaper food choices. Rented a quality 125cc motorbike for 200b, about as cheap as it gets. Many massage shops around, along with a handful of beer bars. Laundry is 50b per kilo, or there are a few self service machines scattered around town.

    Seafood market with lots of seating and lots of stalls selling seafood and meats. Very nice food cooked in front of you. It’s very busy and hard work getting a table but there’s lots of selection of fresh foods which are delicious

    Quite a large park right on the beachfront and very well done in a place where greed for tourists means there is little beachfront left. A memorial to the tsunami victims of 2004.

    We had visited this small temple dedicated to Lord Buddha during our sightseeing in Phuket. This temple is located close to Karon Beach and also known as Wat Karon. We liked the beautiful architecture of temple and the peaceful ambiance inside it. This place is worth a visit when you are visiting Karon Beach.

    We had such a great time at Phuket Thai Cooking class. Firstly, we went to the local market where the locals buy their ingredients, then we cooked 3 amazing Thai dishes and a tasty Thai dessert. The class was very informative so overall this is such as great value for money!

    T Smile is definitely the best Travel & Tour Company in Phuket! If you are planning to go on a tour in or around Phuket you can’t go wrong with T Smile. Our daytrip to Racha Yai/Noi + one secret Island which was the highlight for me, was perfect organized from the start till the end. Proper breakfast and delicious lunch in a 5 star hotel, amazing places to see and for sure a lot of fun. Great crew on board and Mr. Tee himself joined us to make sure we will have a special day!
    Thanks again for this amazing Trip!

    Most amazing service. Great communication and definitely lowest price for high quality services. Mimi speaks good English and gave us all the information in detail prior to our booking. She took care of all the small details to make our trip perfect. We had one private speed boat tour, we hired a car and also hired a yacht for a birthday party. She never disappointed and always responded fast and kindly. Thanks for making our stay much better!
