Nice view and windy, but can be quite hot. Nice place to see sunset over the horizon and if you are an avid photographer, you can come and snap some awesome shots here. There's also a four faced Buddha surrounded by more than 50 elephant statues. If you don't mind the sun, you can sit down at the slope and... More

A must do if staying in Rawai. Beautiful spot to sit with the family and watch the sun set. A picture perfect view. We rode the scooters up to the lookout and its a pleasant ride. Took some amazing photos.

Beautiful place, jaw literally dropped the moment you see the view, feel the wind and smell the ocean. Walk until the end of the cape and you will be enjoying yourself with the big waves. It is really an amazing experience!

We took a taxi here in the late afternoon (to avoid the crowds at sunset). There were many people but we had opportunities to take pictures without anyone in view. View was spectacular and we really enjoyed ourselves.

This is the place to be for THE sunset. We ate icecream while watching the sun elegantly disappeared into the sea line. I don't know about the traffic...there does not seem to be a lot of public transportations to this place. We booked a car and went there, and the place was filled with tour coaches and private cars.

Took a motorbike here nice ride from Patong. Parking is chargeable - 2-5B but non-one was collecting (low season). Free entry and was quiet. Nice Elephant shrine at the top with 100s of different Elephant icons from small to huge - good for photos. It was steaming hot and few vendors so take water. Views from top were very good.... More

My wife and I visited the cape at the middle of the day, around 2:45 pm. Under the blazing sun, the viewing platform was obviously lack of anything that providing cover to the visitors. However, under the sun, the sky was clear and blue, connected with endless Andaman Sea with a few small islands scattered around. The view was simply... More
