Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Karon is known for beaches, shopping, spas, classes, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through Karon Beach, kick back and relax at Freedom Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Jungceylon, and make a trip to Bangla Road.

Plan my Karon trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Auckland, New Zealand to Karon is an approximately 20-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference moving from New Zealand Standard Time to Indochina Time is minus 5 hours. When traveling from Auckland in December, plan for much hotter days and somewhat warmer nights in Karon: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to drive to Nai Yang.
