Excellent sunset view, but then, you can find them in many places on Phuket. But this one is a brilliant one. Be aware that there will be a few buses of tourists being bused up to see the sunset. Get there early for a good photo position...or selfie. There are some little shops with the typical Thai market goods for... More

Really picturesque! Amazing views. Try to go early in the morning before it's swarming with tourists. But it's okay even when busy.

I've been all over Thailand for the past 5 months and this is by far the best sunset I've seen yet! It reminds me of the sunset pictures you see for Africa. The colors are red and orange with the full sun behind the clouds. Just stunning! People start lining up around 5pm to see the show, so get there... More

Beautiful view of the sunset from Phrompthep Cape. Be prepared for minimal parking; suggest either arrive early or take a tuk-tuk from Rawai.

Amazing Views !!! One of the most important viewpoint in Phuket, The whole Phuket tour won't complete without seeing this wonderful Cape !!! Phrompthep cape is very easily accessible from all parts of Phuket, and very close to Windmill viewpoint, we booked a separate SUV from SRC travels for 1800THB and covered almost all the important sightseeing places like Patong...

This was our first stop during our whirlwind tour of Phuket. This view from this place, with the view of the island, is just amazing. When we reached there, there was a couple doing their pre-wedding photoshoot. Although I never understand why people do this, but it shows how how beautiful the view from this place is.

Well worth a visit but make sure you have a knowledgable guide you will then get a good insight into this religious and cultural establishment but remember it is a place of worship rather than a tourist attraction. This is a complex of several temples so come prepared for changing your shoes often.

The view from phrompthep cape is very beautiful although the place can be very crowded even during the day. I'd imagine it would be even more crowded at the sunset. On top of the hill there is a lighthouse that is open for visitors. There are also many shops that sell refreshments, clothes and souvenirs on the parking lot. The... More
