  • A very easy place to get to off the road and there is no entrance fee. We stayed for about 15 minutes as it was very crowded. There is also a lady with an eagle there who you can pay to get a picture ...  more »

  • 5 star view!! Definitely go here. There were elephants along the road on the way up, and eagles at the top. Pleasant travel to and from the view point with multiple beautiful views once at the top. 10/10 would go back. However, I cannot vouch for the elephant places and eagles being humanely operated, so please do your research before giving any money to these places.
  • One stop on our tour and even with the rain near, it was a pretty good high up view point. Expect peddlers though of wooden jewelry and maybe falcon tamers who'll take your picture with one for $10-20. There's nothing really else here, not even benches so the structures itself aren't really nice, just the view. Lots of lizards which is cool. Not sure if there are toilets or not (or if you'd want to use them if there were...)
  • Nice view point that overlooks 2 bays to the north, one is patong. In June the wind blows in from the west and you might see some spectacular waves action. There's a chance for you to have your photos taken with an eagle for some coin, that's pretty interesting in itself. Otherwise you have a few steps to climb up to have a better look around.
  • To be honest a better view is not really from this place but just another 200 mts away, on the right hand curve ahead of Karon View Point where you can stand on the edge of the road , the view of the ocean and cliffs is breathtaking. I was on a motorbike for most times and therefore was at leisure to discover various sights. But for those who came with other modes of transport simply walk a short distance along and ahead of Karon View Point to experience, you cant miss it !
  • Liked this viewpoint. Quite high, was a windy drive up. Very small with little parking. But views were good. Little crowded.
