“Nice atmosphere for a relaxing afternoon in front of Kata beach for food, and drink. The pick-up or drop off of your shuttle bus is usually opposite of the Surf house. However, always check with the driver. ”

Point of Interest
“ the Buddha is gigantic and gives a pleasant and fantastic look from everywhere even from the foothill. Another medium sized Golden Buddha has also been there. Though it is a small hill, it is chilly with abundant fresh air from the Katta Beach on one side. Also it gives lovely views of the beach. We get lot of mental stability and satisfaction in this temple. On our way, lot many eat outs are offering local Thai food and shops on the hill top sell Buddhist and Thailand souvenirs. On our way in the hillside we have noticed lot many trained elephants attract the tourists for ride.”

Point of Interest
“Kata Night Market is a covered shopping area with a very large food court and a selection of mostly tourist-oriented stalls. Found on Kata New Road, it is impossible to miss the giant gorilla and Hulk statues by the entrances. Indeed, it should not be missed as you will find plenty of good savings on meals and souvenirs. The main market contains fairly typical wares, including herbal treatments, t-shirts, bags, flip-flops, souvenirs, swimwear, beach toys and some artworks.”

Establishment
“Dino Park is a mini-golf course and restaurant located right in between Karon and Kata beaches on the Beach Road itself. The 18-hole course is themed on – you guessed it – dinosaurs, and has many large and life-like cement statues of the pre-historic creatures, along with an erupting ‘volcano’ as well as a themed restaurant. Popular with both adults and kids, Dino Park is an ideal family outing destination. Because of Phuket’s high humidity and heat, it’s best to arrive after the heat of day has subsided. You won’t find much in the way of cooling breezes in Dino Park so be sure to wear mosquito repellent, dress light and to pack some bottled water. After a typical round of around 1 hour, the restaurant makes for a great place to cool off with a cold drink or burger.”
