Kathu

Trip Planner Asia  /  Thailand  /  Phuket  /  Kathu
Located on the western coastline of Phuket Island, the district of Kathu stretches along the Andaman Sea and contains some of the most popular beaches in Thailand. With European vacationers flocking here since the late 1980s, Kathu boasts numerous hotels, bars, and restaurants that make this area a tourist mecca. Patong represents the hub of Kathu tourism, known for its shopping and nightlife options--and boasting a reputation as one of Asia's party capitals. Travelers looking to eschew the rowdy crowds on their Kathu vacation prefer a string of smaller beaches just north of town, an area known for its sea views and a surprisingly developed restaurant scene. Make your own Kathu vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Thailand trip planner .
