Kathu Travel Guide | Kathu spreads from the edge of Phuket Town westward towards Patong and is mainly a residential area with a lot of locals and expats choosing to make it their home. This is due to its quiet atmosphere and convenience, however with being connected to major thoroughfares it offers easy access across the whole island.

A few notable points of interest in Kathu include the beautiful structure that is Wat Kathu, a small Buddhist temple of intricate design and another is Kathu Shrine. This Chinese temple has seen some extensive reconstruction over the years to renovate it to its former glory and contains historical artefacts, such as Taoist deities. It is also the birthplace of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival.
