at the southernmost point of Phuket island seems to be an absolutely irresistible spot for a good old-fashioned sunset photo. if you are touring the south of Phuket – you can visit Rawai beach or Naiharn beach, maybe the 3 Beaches Viewpoint, and Promthep Cape, it’s all pretty close together and it’s a very scenic part of Phuket with little major tourist development. This is the classic view of Promthep Cape This landmark has always been the meeting point for a good hundred tourists, 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.
