Best Things to do in Karon in Phuket

Here's a list of Best Things to do in Karon in Phuket recommended by our experts:

Phuket, also known as the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ is dotted with many sandy beaches and azure waters. There are plenty of memorable things to do and see in Phuket – it has now grown into a lot more than a blissful beach laden island. Tourists should know there is never a dull moment in Phuket. The island boasts iconic cultural attractions, a most vibrant nightlife, a beautiful historical old town, entertainment venues, markets, great viewpoints and world famous landmarks. Big Buddha, a 45 meter tall white marble statue, is visible from anywhere in the southern part of Phuket. It is one of the island's most important and revered landmarks. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and at 45 metres high it is easily seen from far away. Go beach hopping among Karon, Patong and Kata, or get off the beaten path and explore remote stretches of sand in the north of Phuket. Phuket is also a good base for exploring the nearby islands and must-see attractions, such as the world-famous Phang Nga Bay and the Phi Phi Islands. Bangla Road is the heart of all Phuket Nightlife. The island boasts a serious crowd of revellers, discos, ping pong bars, go-go bars, cabaret shows, vivid nightclubs with live bands and top international DJs – all the things Thailand’s party scene is appreciated for! Patong is the nightlife centre of Phuket – even though most parts of the island have their own party scene. Tourists make their way over to Bangla Road in Patong with its bright neon lights, biggest clubs, ‘bar beers’, loud music and party-lovers. The beach areas of Patong and Karon are dotted with the best nightlife options including lounges, places for sundowners, gay bars and cultural gigs.
