Kathu Waterfall in Phuket

Les Cascades de Kathu

What to Do at Kathu Waterfall? [toc] Kathu waterfall has an interesting story. For a long time, I thought it was just a tiny trickle, and most people would agree; this cascade isn't worth a visit.

Where to race go karts in Phuket? [toc] Go Kart Phuket is fast, loud, exciting and fun to compete with friends.

Nai Dam Restaurant in Kathu

Nai Dam Restaurant

Nai Dam Restaurant [toc]Nai Dam Restaurant in Kathu looks just like any restaurant by the roadside of Phuket. It's not fancy, there are no exterior sign of luxury and even the restaurant signboard is hardly visible.
