Karon

4.4
Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families. Bars and restaurants stretch all the way down to the palms that line the beach, serving international cuisine and locally caught seafood. One of the longest beaches on the island, Karon provides plenty of room to indulge in the activities that suit you, whether you want to try some water sports or just relax under a rented umbrella. Hike inland during your Karon tour to gain extensive views of the coast, and visit significant local temples. Make your own Karon vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Thailand trip planner.

Where to stay in Karon

You won't find a huge variety of accommodations available in Karon, though the area offers enough options to fulfill the needs of visitors flocking to this popular beach resort. Mid-price hotels cling to the shore and around the main Karon Village area, along with more expensive establishments that offer a wider range of facilities. Venture farther inland to discover a greater variety of budget hotels, simple guesthouses, and apartment rentals.
