What to do and see in Karon, Thailand: The Best Places and Tips

October 17, 2017 Milan Banda

At nearly three miles long, Karon’s beach stretches on and on and on… so this might be the perfect spot for travelers who want as much space as possible around their beach blankets. TripAdvisor travelers say the diving is fabulous. And bring the kids-- Karon is known as a family-friendly town.

Phuket Big Buddha

Reviewed By tric7400 - Hong Kong, China

There is lots to do here and the views are amazing. You can also learn a 7 minute meditation and receive a gift from a monk and a blessing for a small donation.
The views are amazing but currently there is building works going on which spoils it slightly.
You cannot show your knees or shoulders otherwise you have to borrow some clothes at the entrance but it seems this rule only applied to women!

Nin Massage

Reviewed By moongslikesbrownie - Sydney, Australia

We tried the full body massage there and it was great! I also had a facial treatment (with basically cucumbers) and a foot massage. Nin is very flexible in terms of making changes to the set menu to cater to my preference. The staff there are very friendly. Overall, a very casual and pleasant environment! Would be interesting to try the Thai massage there next time!

great tailors, fantastic prices, awesome quality, fast service and amazing owners. The owners are not to pushy or trying to force you into the store. They are kind and let you decide if you are interested or not. I have bought 9 shirts of them and am very pleased with the quality. Next time I visit Thailand, I will revisit the store and get more clothes tailored.

Kata Noi Beach

Reviewed By Lucia A - Bratislava, Slovakia

We were on Kata Noi every day, it is much better than Kata beach. It is not so crowded, very relaxing place, clean calm water. Possibility to rent a beach chair, few bars. One of the bar, on the left side called "On the Rocks" is perfect, amazing view on Kata Noi.

Siam Aquatic Adventures

I want to say hello (Sawadee Krup) and thank you (Krup Kuhn Krup) for looking at my company for your diving and tourism needs here in Phuket, Thailand.. My name is Gregg Aidikoff and I was born in Los Angeles, California USA. In 1974, I started to dive from the beach in Zuma and Malibu Beaches in Southern California. Fell in love with the underwater world and started diving almost every weekend as a teenager. Shortly thereafter, I started to explore dive destinations around the world and realised that diving would be my life and my career. After diving for 25 years, and accumulating over 10,000 dives, I made the decision in 1997 to become a Divemaster, and then a PADI Instructor. I started my first dive company in Los Angeles and called it "The Beverly Hills Dive Club". My first location for teaching diving was in the cool and beautiful kelp Gardens of the Southern California area, exploring the Channel Islands of Santa Catalina, Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and San Miguel. In 1998, I traveled to Cozumel, Mexico and worked for a friends company until 1999 when I started doing dive teaching tours in Hurghada,Egypt, and the Fijian island of Taveuni. I continued my dive training education and became a Master Instructor in 2002, which not only allowed me to train people how to scuba dive, but to teach divers how to teach diving. Moved to Kauai, Hawaii in 2003, teaching there until 2005, when I I moved to Medellin, Colombia. I learned to teach and speak in Spanish until 2008, then moved back to Southern California and continued teaching there until I moved to Phuket, Thailand with my then 13 year old son Zev..... Whew ! A worldwide tour !!!!!!! We LOVE Thailand and we are here to stay forever !!!!!!!! After spending two years here teaching and dive guiding, I felt it was time to open up my own company again, to teach my own very personal style of dive training. This year marks 41 years of scuba diving experience and over 14,000 dives. Please feel free to call me personally to say hi and to custom tailor a dive vacation to your personal desires.I like to connect with my guests from the start of your inquiries until you get here. I personally promise a trip of underwater and above water memories that you will never forget !!!!!

Karon View Point

Reviewed By SenorGancho - Winnipeg, Canada

Late in the afternoon, as the sun gets lower in the sky and the colours come to life, this is a great viewpoint to take it all in. Looking up all the way to Patong the gorgeous coastline is something to behold. Just remember when taking the selfies with sun at your back you'll see the coast but you'll be a dark blob. Use the flash or turn to try to get sun on your face. Be sure to sit and take in the entertainment of the non-stop selfie show.
