Phuket is an island of many hills and stunning viewpoints, and I have been fortunate to see many of them. The name Phuket is derived from the Malay word “Bhukit” which means “Hill.” Here are some of Phuket’s most beautiful viewpoints for you to check out.
1. Karon Viewpoint (Kata Viewpoint)
Karon Viewpoint, which used to be Kata viewpoint, is one of my favorite views in Phuket. From here, you can see Kata Noi, Kata Yai, and Karon beach. Three world-class beaches.
2. Laem Promthep (Promthep Cape)
Laem Promthep is Phuket’s most famous place to watch the sunset, and It’s here where the sun sets last in Thailand.
3. Big Buddha Phuket
Big Buddha sits on the top of the Nakkerd Hills at 400 meters above sea level, offering the best 360-degree views of Phuket, taking in Phuket Town, Kata, Karon and Chalong Bay.
4. Windmill Viewpoint
The Windmill Viewpoint over Ya Nui Beach offers views similar to Promthep Cape, but quieter.
5. Laem Singh Viewpoint
Laem Sing Beach is one of my favorite beaches in Phuket. The beach is just 200 meters long and hidden in a bay surrounded by palm trees and big boulders.
6. Kamala Beach Viewpoint
Before Laem Sing Beach, you can stop along the roadside to see the entire Kamala Beach.
This bay surrounded by green hills is one hell of a beautiful place.
7. Phuket City Viewpoint (Khao Rang Viewpoint)
Phuket City Viewpoint, also known as Khao Rang Viewpoint, has got a facelift just recently. There are a couple of nice restaurants up here with a fantastic view over Phuket Town.
8. Monkey Hill (Khao Toh Sae)
If you have been in Phuket Town, you have probably seen the high hill with TV and Radio masts at the top. Perhaps you didn’t know that this hill is home to hundreds of macaques monkeys. That’s why Khao Toh Sae is called “Monkey Hill.”
9. Khao Khad Views Tower (Panwa Viewpoint)
Khao Khad Views Tower offers a spectacular 360-degree view out over southern and eastern Phuket.
10. Wat Koh Sirey (Koh Sirey Temple)
The temple on Koh Sirey on the east side of Phuket Town sits high on a hill with a spectacular view over Phuket Town.
