How close is Karon beach to Tourist Attractions

We are staying in Karon Beach and would like to know how close we are to places like Tiger Kingdom? We would also like to do an elephant ride and do an island boat trip. How close are we to where to island cruises leave from? Do places like Tiger Kingdom pick you up from hotels? Any advice on nice things to do in the area would be great!

Lots of the main tourist attractions are around or near to the main resort area along Patong Beach, which is the next bay just north of Karon Bay, only 15 minutes away.

The whole island is only about 50 kms long and 10 kms at widest point so by Australian standards its not that big. Tiger Kingdom is roughly half way between Patong and Phuket town - if you type in Tiger Kingdom Phuket Phuket Thailand on googlemaps it will pin it on the map.

Here is a link with lots of ideas from "regulars" for good places to go:

Most boat departures from Chalong bay 10 minutes away driving south, some boats departures on the north east side of Phuket, mailnly if you are looking for a crusie in amazing Phang Nga.

A great elephant trekking close to Karon beach is Kok Chang, their elephant ride is over the mountain with nice sea view. Just few hundreds of meters away from Kok Chang you find the Reagge bar, very nice food, great place to be at 5-7pm overlooking the sea and & the stunning sunset.

All tuk tuk and taxi in Karon know where Kok Chang is located and can take you there.

Have a great day!
