Promthep Cape

Phromthep cape - Of all the view points in Phuket Island, the most famous has got to be Laem Phromthep or Phromthep Cape. Whether the actual viewpoint does it’s reputation justice or not is up for debate, but there is no debating the flocks of tourists that congregate to the hilltop every evening at sundown. Starting just a little before sunset until the sun is fully set, lines of buses make their way up the hill to Leam Phromthep. Each day hundreds of tourists from all over the world come to watch what has been described as the most beautiful sunset to be seen in Phuket. It is true that there are extremely beautiful sunsets to be seen at the viewpoint, on a clear day at least. Often times, especially during the monsoon season, there will be distant clouds on the horizon, obscuring the sunset. At times this can enhance the natural beauty as the sky appears to be alight with fire. Other times, it is just a major let down.

Route
Rang Hill

Rang hill - Rang Hill (Khao Rang) is found on the north side of Phuket Town and is a popular gathering place for locals in the evenings or at weekends and quite a lot of tours take a quick drive up here too. There are 3 different roads up to the top from the south and east sides of the hill (check the map at the end of the page). The main route starts on Mae Luan road next to the Rang Hill Dental Clinic (which we use!). There's a big sign at the corner saying 'Khao Rang'. The road is shady and well kept. You pass a restaurant called Phuket View on the way up - must try it one day! And finally reach a parking area with a little park in the center at the top of the hill. It is walkable, though a hot walk of about a mile from the bottom. It's not one of Phuket's highest hills, the top is about 140m above sea level, compared to nearby Monkey Hill about 270m high (the one with all the aerials on top) and Phuket's high point is well over 500m above sea level.

Photographers from around the world spend days in order to get the perfect photo of the spectacular sunrises seen from Samet Nangshe Viewpoint, which faces due east. Even at night, the views are amazing and as there is no light pollution, the Milky Way and many constellations are brilliant. It gets quite cool at night, so a light jacket or sweater is recommended along with a torch and mosquito repellent. The view includes about two kilometres of mangrove forest and a chain of islands that stretches as far as the eye can see in both directions. The Samet Nangshe Viewpoint was discovered by Theerasak Saksritawee, a professional photographer whose photos from the hilltop were seen by expatriate Thais and locals.

Sarasin Bridge

At the time the bridge wasn’t very high and for many years it was a problem for large boats that had to go all around the island to reach the Andaman Sea. In 2010, a new double lane higher bridge was built parallel to the old one, allowing more road traffic above and bigger ships to pass below.
