Смотровая площадка Промтеп (Promthep View Point)

Viewpoint at Promthep Cape and the lighthouse Kanjanaphisek lighthouse Phuket is also marked on maps as the Sunset View Point Phromthep Cape View Point. This is the most popular observation deck, which offers breathtaking views of the coast and the beaches of Yanui and Naiharn. There are always a lot of people, including local residents, and in the evenings before sunset here bring tourists with their buses. Playground is well equipped and there is a mini market with food stalls, a few restaurants, including a sea view. There are many interesting things besides just beautiful species and recommended it. That is good, the site visit is included in many tours, and especially good if you manage to get here just before sunset and spend the sun over the horizon. Keep in mind that the sunsets in Thailand are from 18 to 19 hours depending on the time of year, and very quick, literally 5-10 minutes.

Смотровая площадка Промтеп (Promthep View Point) Elephant sanctuary

The Central character on the observation deck is the Shrine of the elephant (the Elephant shrine). It is something like a traditional Thai house of the spirits, surrounded by statues of elephants, which here bring local residents in gratitude for a fulfilled wish. A few dozen metres from the lighthouse, which is also more like a Shrine than a real lighthouse, because its top is crowned with figures of elephants. At the base of the lighthouse is a small Museum on the subject of navigation. You can climb to the top, offering the most spectacular panoramic views. Unfortunately, the Museum and the lighthouse is not always according to schedule (on the schedule it is open from 08:00 to 19:00). There could be as lucky.

The most active tourists can walk right to the Promthep Cape, which is issued in the sea and which offers even more spectacular views along the coast, but beware, the descent is not equipped, also present the danger of high waves.

🕐 Working time: Playground available around the clock, but it is best to come here during sunset, from 18:00 to 19:00. The lighthouse Museum is open from 08:00 to 19:00

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: free

🚶 How to get there: the observation deck is located on the very South of the island along the main road 4233 near Naiharn beach (on the map). From Naiharn beach or Nai Harn beach is reachable on foot, and other beaches of the island on a rented vehicle, a taxi, or a tour.

Hello Julia! Like there is no separate turtle farm, only the Phuket Aquarium are turtles. There are still turtle village somewhere in the beach area of Mai Khao, and there might be turtles to see, but I was not there, do not know even where it is. ...

I was in Phuket and visited a wonderful place: in James bond and floating village, ride elephant (take away), Wat Chalong and Phi Phi (where they filmed "the Beach" with DiCaprio). There is a Big Buddha. Went with Tomator, I recommend! ...

Good article! But I'll start with the fact that I'm not a fan of the "seal" rest, because for me it is much more interesting to explore and discover something new, to walk on unknown streets, to meet new people. But when there is no energy for active life, and, in fact, the rest, I always do this: buy a ticket to Phuket, 4 days Bendigo lie on the beach, and from there begin their active traveler. This year I took a summer vacation and realized that to go to Sochi I absolutely do not want, so the choice fell on Ty. "In Thailand this summer?", - asked my friend, "Yes," I answered and thought "seriously, what is Thailand in the summer can be", because we are well fed, but going to the website for the tours and seeing the amount that I have been on the map for my journey, the idea is then embodied in the purchased ticket. To say that mentally I have not had a rest - to say nothing! Warm sea, gentle sun, the cocktails (easier in the morning, in the evening in an adult), pleasant tourists in other rooms - a real thrill! During this period, fortunately, on the beaches freely and quietly, which, of course, could not but rejoice. I left sooooo happy. So, if you came up with the idea - not keep a idea, embody, tourism intuition will not fail ...

Hi all, please tell me forum, and in Phuket you can find on (or off) to rent a boat for boating?
Need 3-5 people(planned to come with friends)

Wow, the questions you have.( Maybe it's an inflatable one?)) LAN LAN. Google we can find. ...
admin November 14, 2019

But in General no problem to find. Of course, with the boatman in the bargain, it's not about self control, I guess. Can of course search the Internet, and on any beach ask boaters you all organize. Less likely, IMHO, in Patong. ...
