Karon Beach & Kata Beach are south of Patong Beach on the island of Phuket Thailand. I decided to take a day trip and go check them out. I was told there was a public bus that went that way but once i hit the streets i found out the only public bus went to Phuket Town. The price for that bus is 30 or 35 Baht and the trip can take up to 1 hour or more.

I eventually decised to take a taxi. The drivers starting price was 400 Baht to Kata beach. I negotiated with him and finally we agreed on 300 baht and he would stop at Karon beach for 20 minutes so i could get some footage, before taking me to Kata beach.

Once i arrived at Kata Beach, i was starving so i found a nice little rastaurant where they have a surf pool. I ordered a Thai Green Curry and the perice was 160 Baht. I sat and ate while watching 2 guys have some fun in the surf pool.

I stayed at Karon beach for about 2 and half hours. When i decided to ome home i enquiered about the price of a tuk-tuk fro mkaron to Patong. They lady told me it would cost 500 baht and she did not wamnt to negotiate. I decided to take the public bus from Karon to Kata which cost 35 Baht. I do not reccomend using this public service if you are in a rush or have to be somewhere urgently. It travels very slow. The total time from Karon to Kata on the public bus was about 15-20 minutes.

When i got off the bus at Kata i was quoted 250 for tuk-tuk to Patong Beach. I decided to start walking towards Patong. I walked up this big hill and took some shade outside a Resort. After some minutes i attracted the attention of an empty tuk-tuk. He pulled over and i negotiated 100 Baht back to Patong.

1 thing i miss is the beach deck chairs and umbrellas. These were an awesome thing for Thailand IMO. Now i avoid the beachs as everyone is fighting for the shade but overall i had a good day.

Total cost of transport was 300+35+100= 435 Baht.

Definitely enjoyed this video you're so funny! haven't been to Thailland yet but my family want to book a holiday so I'm doing some research on the areas, only been to Bali and everything there is quite close to each other- out of the area we are looking at Karon and Kata beach- could you give me any tips on which ones are the best of these or what they both have to offer? if you could that would be great and I would highly appreciate it!! 🙂

Good Vid, Thanks DF. How you like the Balimai hotel? I stayed there about 5 years ago, still had some construction going on

How the f*ck did you get a Tuk tuk from Karon to Pattong for only 100?? The lowest we could haggle was 300 and even that was 100 lower than their "official" mafia price. Luckily we found a deaf/mute driver who would always take us for that much during our stay.

Adam Brown says:

Great vid DF…don't mind the southern beaches, I generally ride to the beaches north of Patong, Kamala and Surin, water is a bit clearer and you can hire a bed'n'brella.
