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 came here!)

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 now, it's much tidier than Patong and the beach looks nice, but back then ...
