Karon

Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Attractions like Patong Beach and Freedom Beach make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Kata Beach, take some stellar pictures from Nai Harn Beach, and don't miss a visit to Bangla Road.

To find maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Karon itinerary builder website .

London, UK to Karon is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Indochina Time (ICT), which is usually a 7 hour difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from London in December: high temperatures in Karon hover around 36°C and lows are around 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to go by car to Mai Khao.
