Kata / Karon Beach


Karon Viewpoint is a strange place: the first time I visited it, the name was ‘Kata Viewpoint’, but one day, someone decided to rename it ‘Karon Viewpoint’! If you know a bit of Phuket geography, you’ll realise how odd this is as it’s far from Karon Beach, but just past Kata Beach. Probably has to do with the Karon district or someone had too much time on his hands. Anyway, it is a little confusing and travellers sometimes are trying to find it around Karon!
