Location & area
Baan Pa-nom is situated in Karon, Phuket. What is there in Karon and around Karon?
Karon beach is a long stretch of powdery white sand just south of Patong. The beach is very long so it never feels overcrowded.
At 4km, Karon is one of Phuket's longest beaches. Although there are a few large resorts and hotels, they are spread out and the area feels very relaxed. As in Patong, the hotels are separated from the beach by a road. However, unlike Patong, the beach is always fairly quiet. The beach itself is quite exposed, with little or no natural shade. The sand is so fine and powdery that it squeaks when you walk on it.
The southern point has a coral reef that stretches towards Kata and Pu Island. There are not as many watersports activities on Karon beach as in Patong or Kata. During the rainy season Karon can be good for surfing but dangerous for swimming due to the large waves and strong rip currents.
Karon Beach has fine white sand that squeaks when you walk on it throughout its entire length. At the north end, in front of the lake, the beach is usually deserted, making it a great spot to go if you want the beach to yourself.
Sea turtles are occasional nocturnal visitors, laying their eggs in the sand at night time.
The stalls set up on the beach just north of the circle are worth trying for their reasonably priced curries and other Thai dishes and also for the sheer pleasure of feeling only sand underfoot and an unfettered view of the sea as you dine.
The sun bed vendors sell drinks, snacks and ice cream and wherever there are sun beds there's a restaurant not far away. Some are small Thai restaurants that also feature western food and many are in the bigger hotels that line the road.
Watersports on Karon Beach
Jet-ski and parasailing operators walk up and down the beach looking for customers. With fewer jet-skis than Patong there's more room to operate.
Also popular are the banana boat, waterskiing and wakeboarding.
Windsurfing is very popular on Karon Beach as it has some of the best conditions in Phuket and plenty of space in which to maneuver.
Hobie cats and sea kayaks are also available.
Shopping near Karon
Kata and Patong are the neares place with great shooping.
Kata Beach is superior to Karon Beach when it comes to relaxed shopping, in that it is more compact and the atmosphere here is less seedy. Walking around is less arduous in the 'helloooo-you-wan'-massage?' department. Still, people seeking a tailor-made suit should be in seventh heaven around here.
People looking for good imitation paintings - from tacky and teary Pierrots to Andy Warhol copies won't be disappointed as these items are to be found opposite Marina Phuket Resort.
In Patong there is a huge shopping centre called Jungceylon.
There are two main stores in this complex.
One is Robinson - a gleaming well-lit upper end department store,
And Carrefour - a French-based supermarket. The almost 200 other stores in this new shopping heaven sell brand name clothes, spectacles, sunglasses, colognes and perfumes, shoes, DVD-CD-VCD's, computer games, electrical goods, pewter, gold and silver, sportswear and goods amongst myriad other items.
Dining in Karon
There are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
If you follow the road south from Karon Circle it won't be long before you spy the newest and hippest part of the area. A recently built boutique complex has arrived, bringing with it several upscale restaurants and cafés which offer contemporary cuisine and stylish atmosphere.
Vitaporn offers first-class Thai cuisine and excellent service.
Wildfire has a festive menu and an upbeat atmosphere while Talay has very good value seafood in a simple yet stylish setting. For a sundowner and snacks try out Mong Talay, also called the sunset bar for its perfect ocean view.
Karon Beach Nightlife
If you want to strike a balance between rowdy and relaxed, Karon is a good bet.
Luang Poh Chuan Road is Karon's version of Bangla Road in Patong, with a bar soi at either end, similar to places like Patong's Soi Gonzo or Soi Crocodile, but on a smaller scale (and lacking the ladyboy stage).
At the western end (closer to the beach) is an L-shaped soi with Black Cat at the angle. Other bars in the area include Nan's, Hot Shot and Winner. There's also a side street with a few shops and restaurants here. Almost all of these bars have pool tables, which make for an amusing distraction while you are getting chatted up by the girls (where you flom?').
At the far end there's another bar soi with a little more lascivious feel. The places here all have names like Amazon, Bikini Bar and Easy Bar. Go figure.
If you've got the family with you then stop by Dino Park at the north end of Kata, where it blurs into Karon.
You'll find mini-golf, burgers and a photo-op with a baby elephant. Sunset at Koh Chang Elephant Camp is always beautiful and the resident monkeys will delight the kids.
Kata also has good shopping options, with tailors, souvenir shops and DVD vendors all on hand.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
