Laem Phrom Thep
Situated between Rawai and Nai Harn beaches, Phrom Thep Cape is a dramatic headland that stretches out to sea at the southwest end of Phuket Island. The cape has spectacular views of the small island of Koh Kaew Yai and the Andaman Sea, and is a particularly popular place to enjoy the sunset.
At the top is a shrine dedicated to Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, whom the cape is named after. (Phra Phrom is the Thai name for Brahma, laem means “cape”, while thep means “god”). To get an even better view, climb up a couple of flights of stairs to a raised platform in the Golden Jubilee Lighthouse. The lighthouse also contains a small nautical museum.
The viewpoint attracts a lot of tourists and locals at sunset, so if you want to avoid the crowds consider going earlier in the day. There is an open-air restaurant with fantastic views from the cape which can make for a memorable dining experience.
Laem Phrom Thep is located between Rawai and Nai Harn. Head south from Rawai for a couple of kilometres. There is a large car park and quite a few souvenir shops so you won’t miss it. The road is steep and windy so take extra care, especially if its wet.
A large sala or pavillion by the side of the road between Kata and Nai Harn marks the spot for this viewpoint. On a clear day, the view of the bays of Kata Noi, Kata Yai, Karon and Pu Island all strung out before you is nothing short of magnificent.
The viewpoint is about five minutes drive south of Kata on the way to Laem Phrom Thep.
This hill is located at the northwest edge of Phuket City, providing lovely views across Phuket’s capital. At the top is a fitness park as well as a statue of Phuket’s most famous governor, Ratsada Korsimbi Na Ranong, who presided over the city’s early development at the turn of the twentieth century.
The best reason to visit Rang Hill (Khao Rang in Thai), is to dine at one of the hill-top restaurants. The view, particularly at night, is a perfect accompaniment to a tasty meal.
