All Attractions in Karon

Popular with both adults and kids, Dino Park is an ideal family outing destination. Because of Phuket’s high humidity and heat, it’s best to frequent the place after the heat of day has abated. The 18-hole mini-golf course has different dinosaurs at each hole and is challenging in parts but nevertheless ‘doable’ for younger players. The clever lighting and atmospheric volcano that ‘erupts’ every 30 minutes with ersatz flames and a fog-like spray is best appreciated after dusk. Read More...

A trip to a local village market can be so much fun. Visitors are sure to spot some unusual products that they have never seen before. Likewise, going to a talad nat (community market) is a way to shop for the best bargain nick-knack items such as T-shirts, CD’s and DVD’s, jeans, hair accessories, handicrafts, fresh and cooked food.

Wat Suwan Khiri Khet (Wat Karon)

Karon covers a rather large area but the village’s temple is close to everything important in the area, including hotels and shopping facilities. All the same, it still manages to keep a peaceful atmosphere, just off the busy Patak Road. Visitors will spot a few interesting statues including the two giant snakes acting as guardians of the beautiful ubosot (the temple’s main hall), and many Buddha statues, images and paintings (the black Buddha statue inside the building is quite unusual and hardly seen anywhere else) as well as colourful statues of monsters (or ‘yak’ in Thai) from Thai folklore. 

  • Opening Hours: Daily
  • Location: On Patak Road, close to Karon centre, about half a kilometer from the beach
