  • We went to Phromthep Cape during our tour of the South of the island. It's really one of the Must See in Phuket! You are at the extreme south - southwest and Bay view is just great. The site is well worth a visit and even shops that run alongside the rise of markets are nice! A real must-see ballad during a visit to Phuket ;-)

  • Phromthep Cape is a must see if you visit Phuket. It is the most famous view point on the island, especially for sunsets. Phromthep Cape is both famous among Thai and foreigners alike, actually more so among Thais. many Thais i have meet say if you have been to Phuket and not visited Phromthep Cape Phuket you have not been on Phuket at all. It is a real tourist attraction, with a lot of souvenir shops and restaurants. But what make Phromthep Cape differ from a "tourist trap" is that the view is really something special. You can hike out on the cape, but be aware that the path is at places more than difficult. I have to warn about to take the hike in the middle of the day without a hat and a lot to drink. I did walk all the way to at end, in the middle of the day, but did not bring water or a hat, so the hike back was very long and very hot. I was stopped by several other tourist and asked if i felt OK, i guess i did not look ok. I can only recommend at visit to Phromthep Cape Phuket.
  • Great view to see sunset! If your physical is good enough, you can hike carefully down to the tip!! It is awesome!! You will love it! Great view! Little hike! Dont recommend to hike in the rain. It can be very slippery!!!
  • If you visit Phuket this place is worth a visit. You would have an incredibel view over the ocean and a perfect place for watching the sun go down.
  • Phromthep Cape is one of the main attractions in Phuket. The best time to go there is around 5 pm but it depends which month you are going. when we went there it was a bit cloudy, I hope when next time I go there the weather would be clear....nice place to spend a couple of hours, There are food shops, restaurants and souvenir shops as well.
  • Great spot for a sunset obviously but it can get really busy. Don't leave too fast after the sunset, there is a nice local restaurant up there too!
