I recently visited Phuket on a personal holiday, flying direct to Thailand with Jetstar Airways.
We stayed at the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, located opposite Karon Beach, with easy access to the beach via pedestrian walkways. With five swimming pools across the resort, there was always a spot to relax by the pool! The resort also had a vast array of dining options to suit all tastes and budgets within the resort. If visiting, I recommend that you take the time to do a Thai cooking class – you won’t be disappointed!
The highlight of my trip was visiting Phang Na Bay (James Bond Island) by speedboat. However, the best sightseeing tour I went on would have to be the whitewater rafting, elephant trek & ATV. If you’re visiting Thailand, Karon and Kata Beach are a great alternative to escape the hustle and bustle of popular Patong Beach. It’s only a 10-15 minute ride via tuk-tuk to Patong Beach, and costs only around AUD$15, so it’s is still easy to visit!
