The Laem Phromthep stands out as one of Phuket’s most astounding locations. It is a place that sweeps you into tranquil serenity amidst the bustling city of Phuket. Here you can find locals and tourists relaxing after a hard day’s work or after tirelessly touring the city. It is a place to bask in the aura of beauty emulated so magnificently by the scenic beauty of its surroundings especially at the time of sunset.
A favorite among anyone stepping in to Phuket, Laem Phromthep has evolved to cater to its plethora of ardent visitors. The location has a sizeable car park and as you climb up the stairs you will find a number of small souvenir shops, snack outlets and restaurants. At the viewpoint there are a couple of benches to sit on, but that’s not a problem as plenty of rocks and grass in the region also makes comfortable places to sit on. Apart from the spectacular view that Leam Phromthep affords, there are plenty of little attractions dotted around the view point making this place an overall tourist attraction in Phuket. Among the places of interest is an elephant shrine signifying the importance of elephants in Buddhism and a little further away you can find an interesting lighthouse. It’s rather quiet and is open to climb up for a spectacular view of the Andaman Ocean in front of you. The view point is perched on the highest region of Laem Phromthep. This affords a spectacularly panoramic view where you can see all the way from the tip of the island up to the Nai Harn Beach. The sunset from this region is magnificent beyond words and is a must not miss for anyone visiting Phuket. With or without clouds there is such a serene beauty reflected from the skies at this part of the day.
