  • Cruising destination from Singapore first landed in Phuket and went straight to here. The view from the top of the cliff overlooking the sea was spectacular. It's a sunset view point so next time I want to make a visit together.

  • 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.
