You won't see the sunrise, watch sunset at Kata Viewpoint at about 6-30pm.

Shocker.

Have to agree with you, fantastic views and great ambience, the first one is a bit rickety, the middle one is a bit higher standard. All very good. A must for anyone visiting Phuket.

Seems I confused some, to see a sunrise on Phuket you will need to go to the east coast, or somewhere where you can see the east coast. You cant see that coast from Kata. By the time the sun is over the hill behind Kata beach, it will be about 8am.

I would think the sunrise from Big Buddha would be fantastic, its about a 20 min drive from Kata.
