Karon Beach Just across a low hill to the north of Kata, the long white beach of Karon stretches magnificently with pines and palms standing tall over the rolling sand dunes providing a unique scene. It is flourishing side by side with Kata Beach, but is more placid. The sea water here is clean and the sand is powdery. It is the one of the best places for swimming, diving and sunbathing. You can come from Kata to Karon easily by road or by a path along the coast.


Patong Beach Patong is the foremost beach resort of Phuket which can compete with any other famous beaches of the world. But many people do not know that , as late as a few decades ago, Patong was the remotest district of Phuket, cut off from the main part of the island by mountains. Even though it was located only 15 km from the provincial town, it sometimes happened that a Patong willager who seriously ill would die before reaching a hospital in town.


Thanks to His Majesty King Phumibol, after his visit to Patong in 1959, a modern road called Pra Barami was built leading from Phuket town to Patong beach, bringing modernisation to the district. Patong beach is widely known among Thais and foreigners because of two important factors. One is its natural beauty - the white sandy beach, plentiful sunshine clear turquoise sea, fantastic



underwater life and soft breezes. The other factor is the availability of a wide range of man-made facilities. Here you have a big choice of accommodation from luxurious hotels to palm cottages, a host of restaurants and shops, all kinds of aqua- sport equipment and numerous places of night time entertainment, including enchanting transvestite cabaret shows.
