    We love visiting this viewpoint. We always hire motorbikes and take a ride through Kata and up the hill to the viewpoint. There is a nice cafe on the way up the hill on the left that serves cakes, coffees and shakes. Z
    Often at the viewpoint you can pay to have amazing photos holding a white falcon, and you can see amazing views of the beaches along the coast towards Kata and Karon. Great photo point on a clear day.

    Beach is perfect for families and safe for swimming. Laid back with enough of options of food, restaurants, bars, massage parlors without being too overwhelming.
    I have been to most beaches in Phuket and Kata for me has always been a favourite. Not the noise of Patong or the quiet of Kamala, but just in between.

    I visited the market while on a trip with five other family members. From an eleven year old to 50+. It was quite a way out of town from Kata where we were staying but worth the visit. There are some lovely temple buildings with lots of locals and local activities. There was a stage with dancing groups including a local school performing with lovely Thai music.
    The market stalls themselves were selling the same things you find everywhere else, fake goods, beach wear, souvenirs etc but there are lots of stalls to choose from. There are quite a lot of food and drink options all selling nice Thai food lots of which is made while you watch. Lovely fresh fruit smoothies too at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
    Unlike some Thai night markets there is no alcohol allowed at the temple market.
    There are plenty of other shops and restaurants in the area too.

    Seafood market with lots of seating and lots of stalls selling seafood and meats. Very nice food cooked in front of you. It’s very busy and hard work getting a table but there’s lots of selection of fresh foods which are delicious

    I’ve trained at Chang a few times over the years and I’m a huge fan. Great work out and the staff know when they’re doing. Non intimidating and welcomes people of all ages and skill level. Highly recommend

    Quite a large park right on the beachfront and very well done in a place where greed for tourists means there is little beachfront left. A memorial to the tsunami victims of 2004.

    We had visited this small temple dedicated to Lord Buddha during our sightseeing in Phuket. This temple is located close to Karon Beach and also known as Wat Karon. We liked the beautiful architecture of temple and the peaceful ambiance inside it. This place is worth a visit when you are visiting Karon Beach.

    I recomand you to visit it.
    But be informed that once you get there, you must get to the beach just with your own moto( and is difficult), or you will find some cars ( 300 bath per person go and back from beach, so if you are 4 persons, it will be 1200 bath just to get to the beach)
    The rude ,thai bad thing is that is no written anywhere , nothing, so you must ask some thai people or your first driver who will get you here( up, the normal driver taxi will not get you to the beach, is impossible)
    If you get to the beach, you will find a small, idilic beach, small restaurant with a nice front sea view, thai bad services etc
    On the beach there are a lot of profi/ high/ on the hill places for taking profi, excelent photos, so for making beautifull couples of families foto is the best beach!!
    Really, inform a little bit, and spend a day here. You will enjoy it!

    Not only Leam Promtap is the place to see sunset, but Leam krating is one of the exotic place too. There is some difficulty of getting there because the trial is difficult to walk. First you must climb all the rock and after that there will be a trial but difficult to walk on the grass. Must be prepare for the climbing shoes and water to drink. The path to get there is near the Krating resort, you need to park along the street because the resort not allow the pedestrian to park the car in their property. Timing of getting to the point is 45 mins of walking. Might need to prepare the torch for getting back after the sunset.
