Chalong (Chalong) , Phuket is not the beach, but only area and a great Cove for mooring boats and yachts in the South-Eastern part of the island (Rawai on the island map). Don't even consider this place as an area to stay if you want to enjoy a beach holiday within walking distance from your hotel. The water here is dirty, all the moored boats and yachts, ebbs "take" water from the shore for hundreds of meters. The most that you can expect to sunbathe by the sea. And the nearest nice beach of Kata is on the other side of the island (West coast) is 6 kilometers away.

But, nevertheless, to see foreigners in Chalong – are not uncommon. The area is very popular as a place where you can find a cheap house or room for a long stay and it is ideal for owners of yachts and ships. If you are planning to go to Phuket for the winter to rest and work, you can start a search for housing in this area, because here there is all necessary infrastructure for long-term stay. At the same time, tourist infrastructure is poorly developed: few hotels, European restaurants, travel agencies not to find. But many of the popular attractions of the island are here (Big Buddha, bird Park, shooting range, Quad bike safaris, elephant nurseries, training centers, Thai Boxing, etc.)

Another area is popular as a starting point of excursions and itineraries for diving to the surrounding Islands. If you came to the island for a beach vacation, but in order to explore the underwater world of the neighbouring Islands, the best place to stop to find.

Starting here, you should be prepared to rent transportation that's easy to do: here motorbike rental services, as well as everywhere on the island.

To get to Karon by taxi Songthaew from the Parking lot in the center of Phuket town (see the Phuket bus station) 40 baht (see current exchange rate currency of Thailand).

Hotels in kata a bit. It is mostly live in rented houses and rooms.
