Viewpoint Karon does not belong to the quiet and cozy places where have a good time. True connoisseurs of panoramas and comfort. choose a place near here – the restaurant Heaven, where the view better, and you can sit with a glass of cocktail, not pushing with three buses of Chinese tourists. Inspection Karon is noisy crowded, not the most interesting sunset, but a good angle for filming the three main beaches of Phuket in this edge of the island: Kata Noi, Kata and Karon.

Karon Observation Deck
Due to its geographical location (west, hill, sparse vegetation), Karon Viewpoint allows you to observe sunsets, with the sun setting right on the sea. I think real connoisseurs know what is particularly colorful and the value of such sunsets. The observation deck is equipped with a large stone fat (gazebo), under which you can hide from the sun, and around the fat there is a small garden with a multi-level pedestrian walkway. In mind high cross-country, it was the right decision an architect who did it so that people wouldn’t crowd and constantly moving, giving way to each other.
It is better to arrive in the morning, at 10 o’clock, or an hour before sunset – Take a seat in the first row and there will be no problems with parking. Closer to sunset buses will bring tourists, pushing with whom will not very nice. And if you’re lucky enough to get on Karon Viewpoint in New Year’s Eve, the enchanting spectacle of hundreds of fireworks over the coast will be provided.
In the parking lot near the point of sale are snack vendors and owners animals / birds you can take pictures with. Well, in general it was dirty to me, untidy.

Small ViewPoint Cafe
Literally half a kilometer from Karon Viewpoint there is an elephant farm and a small cafe, which is called – Small Viewpoint It can be clearly seen from the road, if you go from the direction of Karon. Parking near the cafe is quite spacious, there is a place for scooters, and for cars. The main dining room here is open sky, but there are tables and under the roof. The place is not as popular as After Beach Bar, food for the quality of C grade, cocktails are better not order, do very mediocre. The main advantage of the cafe – the view and the opportunity to sit at the table, eat and relax. Once. For the second time, I don’t want to come back here, however, as well as on Karon Viewpoint as a whole.
