Video - Patong to Karon Beach in 1988

A great little video that shows the road still under construction between Patong and Karon beaches in Phuket, back in 1988 (11 years before I arrived in Phuket!) Before that I guess you had to reach Karon by boat only? Nonetheless, you can see quite a few beach chairs and people on Karon Beach already way back then. The lake which has been contained in a man-made lagoon is still 100% natural in this video. Just imagine how it might have been a few years before this. I mean, Karon doesn't look too bad even now, it's much tidier than Patong and the beach looks nice, but back then ... before the real tourism rush, what a paradise!
