Karon, Phuket — 11 nights

Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Big Buddha Phuket and A&F Tour Travel are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Karon's surroundings by going to Wat Ban Ko Si Rea (in Ratsada), Green Elephant Sanctuary Park (in Choeng Thale) and Jui Tui Shrine (in Talat Nuea). There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, get outside with The Junk Liveaboards, enjoy the sand and surf at Kata Beach, and look for gifts at Suit Master.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Karon road trip planner.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
