  • Need to climb up some stairs to get to the top. The view from the top was amazing though. However, we were there in the late afternoon and felt really hot. Didn't stay long enough to watch the sunset.  more »

  • Amazing view and sunsets. No entry fee. The local stands have homemade coconut ice cream, crepes, fresh roasted cashews, fruit and anything else you can imagine in the market setting.
  • I went to the early morning. Cool air, very cold winds. There was no tourist at the time. I photographed without tourists inside the frame. I think if you are a photographer This is a time that you should not miss.
  • The perfect view point to capture beautiful sunset. Go down on the trek to the small cape towards the end where the wave crashing onto the rocks. What a peaceful serenading view.
  • Shore excursion on the second day landed me at Promthep Cape via Phuket town at about 2.30pm. Given an allocation of an hour at Promthep Cape, we walked around the hilltop area for the beautiful far end view whereby Andaman Sea and South China Sea meets, then at the elephant shrine with hundreds of elephant statues and carvings, and finally, the lighthouse/museum featuring historical maritime artifacts.
  • nice place, nice view , nice vibe. worth to visit . recomended to drive by bicycle to here, with enjoy every single scenery along the road .
