    You can take a cab from. Caron beach to reach this place. You may catch sunset on a clear day.

    Not much else to do, fine place to spend few hours if there's nothing else to do

    Went there in September 2022. Kata Noi was a really nice beach. Not crowded at all during the time I was there. Definitely a lot more enjoyable than Kata and Karon beaches.

    Kata Beach, Phuket’s composed of 2 lovely beaches called Kata Yai (Big kata) and Kata Noi (Small Kata) separated from each other by a small headland, Kata Beach is suitable for holiday makers who look for bright sun, white sound, a calm clear sea.

    Kata is located only 7 KM from the Chalong Intersection in Phuket town. The way leading to the beach can overlook the elegant scene of Chalong Bay on the southern coast of the island. Various kinds of accommodations, restaurants, shops and aqua-sports facilities are available.

    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.

    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

    I had no idea a public park could look so nice. This park is beautiful. Perfect place for a romantic walk. Also good to take children for a walk

    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.

    Went with my 19 year old daughter and we both loved it. Very enjoyable and informative afternoon and evening with Jack and Sally. Jack picked us up at the hotel, we then went on a local market tour which was very informative and filling! Got it try lots of different things at the market.

    Then made two main dishes (green curry, including the curry paste and pad Thai) and spring rolls and learnt how to make sweet sticky rice and mango.

    Got to have a nice meal with drinks with we cooked. Very fun, social and informative session. Can't fault it 5/5. Very effecient operation by the two of them and their helpers.

    They also accommodate for dietary restrictions people might have by adjusting the receipie to suit.

    Did our Advanced Open water with Phuket Dive Tour, had a great time and experience. Our instructor, Tim was patient and knowledgeable. The Boat we took was well equipped and the restroom facilities were clean. Food and beverage was always available in dining area.

    Will definitely go back to them again when I continue my diving certification.

    While our family was on holiday at Kata, I provided Jack with a brief description of a skirt I had in mind. Jack was able to make it exactly the way i had envisioned and for a very reasonable price and at very short notice. This skirt is now one of my favourite pieces to wear to work and I constantly receive compliments on it. I will definitely be returing to have Jack tailor more items for me. HIghly recommended!

    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!
