Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Jungceylon and Patong Inn Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Karon: Jui Tui Shrine (in Talat Nuea) and Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket Offices (in Patong). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Karon Beach, don't miss a visit to Bangla Road, get some fabulous bargains at Royal Armani Suit, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
