Karon or Patong

My girlfriend and I (both 25) will be visiting Phuket in the middle of November and we can't decide whether to stay in Karon and Patong. We are looking to relax on the beach but also like to keep busy some days with day trips or sight seeing etc. Can any recommend one over the other? Also any must do activities in either location?

We are playing on visitng Krabi and Phi Phi afterwards.

Patong is the place to be ,much more to do .You will save heaps on tuk tuks travelling back and forth to Karon Use Trip advisor to find good accom . Lots to do with great food and nightlife .If you like it quiet stay at the Novotel which is awesome or if you like it busy stay at the centara ashlee ,its also a bit cheaper. Patong resort sucks but good location.
