Karon, Phuket

— 8 nights
Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.
Escape the urban bustle at Yanui Beach and Rawai Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Karon View Point and Kamala Beach. Explore Karon's surroundings by going to Monkey Hill (in Phuket Town) and Maithon Island (Honeymoon Island) (in Rawai). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Promthep Cape, play a few rounds at Phuket Golf Holidays, look for gifts at Niphon's Rich Collection, and stroll through Phuket Crocodile World.

Reykjavik, Iceland to Karon is an approximately 21.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight, bus, ferry, and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Reykjavik to Karon. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Reykjavik in December, with highs in Karon at 36°C and lows at 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can drive to Nai Yang.

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.
