“Lovely views”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

You wouldn't stay here for hours on end, but it's deffo worth a visit. It has lovely 360 degree views, it makes wonderful photos, and I bet it looks awesome in a sunset.

There's quite a lot of stairs to go up, well not loads, but in the heat, everything feels more exhausting!

There's loads of awesome bugs up there too, I don't like bugs at all, but they don't bother you, there's a lot of praying mantises which is pretty cool as I've never seen one.

There isn't a fee to go up the tower, there's no shop nearby if you need a drink so take one with you.

“Good viewpoint with 360 degree views”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Even on a cloudy day, this is worth the climb to get views in all directions of this southern part of Phuket. I was "lucky" to also get dramatic views of heavy rain showers approaching.
The viewing tower has multiple levels, and the extra few steps up to the top level give by far the best views, plus it has guided diagrams marking the sights in each direction.

“A different view”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Brace yourself for scenic views! But to get there, you'd have to put in some effort to climb flights of stairs (which is alright) and battle it out with bugs. You would get to meet new and interesting types of insects as well.

“360 degree view of southern of Phuket”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

It's only 20 mins by car from Phuket town. Now this viewpoint was not so popular so its a lot less crowded than other viewpoints. I went there in the afternoon so it's very hot, but the view was great and worth to go. You can see Ao-ChaLhong, Panwa Cape, Phuket town, and many little islands around which I thougt it'd be very beautiful when the sun set. ( And it'd be more crowded as well.)

The road to this viewpoint was in good condition, but had a lot of dangerous curve and some part was narrow, so you should be careful.
