  • A nice hike up the mountain and then down to the rocks - a beautiful place and not very crowded these days.  more »
  • Promthep Cape is very famous place when you been to Phuket. I recommend to get there in the early morning to see the sunrise and around 5-6pm to see the sunset.  more »

  • Make sure you get there in time for sunset. There is a small dirt path that takes you through some brush and if you're adventurous, you can stand on the southern most tip of Phuket where this photo was taken, right by the sea. Be careful though, it can be a rough trek - about 20 minutes or so.
  • Definitely worth the hike down all the way to the bottom. It's an amazingly beautiful place. Out of this world kinda view. Wish i could stay till sunset but l had to catch a flight. If i can, world definitely return for the sunset view.
