Phromptep Cape Phuket

l3

Promthep Cape at the southernmost point of Phuket island seems to be an absolutely irresistible spot for a good old-fashioned sunset photo. This landmark has always been the meeting point for a good hundred tourists, mostly Thai, to line up on the west facing coastline with cameras ready. Huge colorful buses download a horde of daily tourists hungry for a picture and the place starts buzzing with flash all directions. It’s actually funny to see how many people take sunset photos with a flash!

With its elevated location and few small islands nearby, Promthep Cape is certainly a nice place to see a sunset, but it is not really amazing. Watching the crowd is almost more entertaining: most people are texting of playing facebook games while waiting for the six o’clock moment.

Promthep Cape cape is Phuket’s symbol and you will recognize its tall sugar palms on car plates having a special number. In case you didn’t know, you can buy a special ‘lucky’ number and your plate will be decorated with the symbol of the province.

If you feel courageous, and clearly not many do, walk all the way down to the end of the cape. It is quite easy to go there, but without training, on the way back you might wonder why did you have to inflict this to yourself.
What is around to see Promthep cape? Not much, the Lighthouse, which is also a mini museum, doesn’t display much to look at and even from the top doesn’t offer any particular view. The shrine surrounded by hundreds of elephants statues and carvings in all sizes and colors is a lot nicer. You can’t miss it.

 

How to go there?  Will be easier if you take taxi or use our phuket car rental. If not know any services… yes we are happy for help you,  just call us at +66 (085) 883 4030 or contact us here

Atop-rafting-trekking-tourlthough there are no large rivers on Phuket, nearby Phang Nga province is a good place to enjoy this eco-friendly adventure sport. Most rafting trips take place on the Khlong Song Phraek stream in the Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary, not far from Phang Nga Town.

The stream is quite narrow with a few boulders. The rapids are rated Class 2 and Class 3 using to the International Grading System. A lot of fun if you don’t mind getting wet but pretty tame if you have been whitewater rafting on larger rivers.

The trip is quite short, only taking about half a day. Most rafting trips to the area will usually include other activities such as elephant trekking or hiking to one of the waterfalls in the wildlife sanctuary.

Whitewater rafting in Phang Nga is available year round, though the rainy season, from June to November, is by far the best time to go.
