  • But going into the car or tour is worth watching is not. Watch the sunset at Nice, even lunch parking were packed with cars. Palm view was like. Not enough time off around but want to go on a little promontory. Also next time I go. In the area still Chinese, wedding photos,. Square placed works of art. And then there is also a small temple surrounded by elephant sculptures. Peep in rawai Beach sea Gypsy life when you come here, don't forget your watch!

  • 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.
