Where did you start in Karon? It is hard to tell from the hand drawing.
Start from "Karon Circle" forward to the "Karon Temple" all the way on this road across the hill then to turn left when you at Chalong intersection. Further to the First traffic light, turn left there to the big buddha.
And also karon beach so crowded not really like so i choose paradise beach less people more private its just far
Yeah karon beach is also near i just pass by them and decide to go to paradise beach instead because of the fullmoon party that night even for new year and then did not went back instead i stay there because of the very remote beach its on by the edge of all islands there it cost me -500-600 baht for tuktuk ride
