“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Says it all, but we did visit on a misty day. Many places on Phuket have good views and if visiting the Big Budda they are excellent.

“Can't compare with Phrompthep Cape”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Can't compare with Phrompthep Cape but still not bad. We had been there just after watch the sunset in Phrompthep Cape so this spot is very quiet which is not bad, but very small area so can image if sunset time how crowd it can be.

“Nice lookout but too many tourists”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Phuket is a super touristy place. This view point looks out of the most frequented beaches of tourists, patong, karon and kata. It is a really nice ride along the coast to reach these places swell. Definitely worth a look

“Rent a motobike and do it !”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A nice road and a view on the 3 beaches of the south of Phuket. Taxis are far too expensive, for this and all the other things (more than in Europe !). Using a motorbike is pleasant, especially if you don't ride during the rush hours or at night (after 16H).
