    Address:
    Promthep Cape แหลมพรหมเทพ, Rawai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

    Promthep Cape is one of the most photographed locations in Phuket. Every evening, tour buses, scooters and private cars sweep through Rawai Beach and up the island's southernmost hill to watch the sunset, which can also be spelt as 'Phromthep Cape' (though it's said the same way). There's also a lighthouse displaying interesting historical maritime artefacts here. It commands spectacular views over the east and southeast of the island and its environs.

  • Khao Khad-Ao Yon View Point

    Address:
    Kao Khad View Point, Wichit, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

    The Panwa Viewpoint building has two levels above the ground floor and the 360˚ view from one of the highest points on Phuket island is breathtaking. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Phang Nga Bay.

  • Khao Rang Hill View Point

    Address:
    Rang Hill view point, Patiphat Rd, Wichit, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

    The actual view from Khao Rang Viewpoint is mostly south and east, with the hills forming the spine of Phuket forming a border to your right (west). Directly ahead of you, you will see some of the older streets of Phuket Town, which stretches out towards Chalong Bay at the horizon. The Panwa peninsula stretches down along the left of your view and Koh Lon is just visible in the distance.

    A pleasant and peaceful spot, with a number of other attractions on the drive up to it, the Khao Rang Viewpoint is equally popular with tourists and sightseers as well as locals looking for a nice place for a picnic.

  • Windmill Viewpoint in Phuket

    Address:
    Windmill Viewpoint, Rawai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

    Windmill Viewpoint is located between Ya Nui and Nai Harn beaches in south Phuket. Not far from Phromthep Cape, it has several tall, slim white windmills belonging to the Promthep Alternate Energy Station. This hilltop viewpoint features west-coast vistas similar to Phromthep but is usually quieter.

    There’s not much to this relatively small viewpoint except a covered sala with a sitting space and the occasional drinks or jewelry vendor. But the views are tremendous and take in Ya Nui Beach to the south, Phromthep Cape further south, Nai Harn Beach to the north and a lusciously verdant oblong-shaped island called Koh Man almost opposite.

    Ao Yon beach, Soi Ao-Yon Khaokhad, Wichit, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

    Ao Yon Beach, as surprising as it may seem, is a quiet and remote beach where you can have a quiet walk and only meet locals and few longtime residents. Of course, these little beaches are far and often hidden and you need to make a bit of effort to find them, and that is the main reason why such beaches remain quiet.

  • Chilva Market

    Address:
    Chilva Market, Yaowarat Road, Talat Yai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket, Thailand .

Located along Chao Fa West Road, just outside Phuket Town and not far from Central Festival, it's locally known as Naka Market or Talad Tai Rot and is sometimes also referred to as the Chaofa Variety Weekend Market.

    As the single biggest night market in Phuket, it really is worth a visit even if you're not planning on buying anything. If you were to ask what’s for sale here, the answer would probably have to be, "how much time do you have?" as the list of goods is seemingly endless.
