Visited this place one of nights of our holiday as our hotel offered free drop off and pick up. The views are beautiful but it is over run by visitors ( very commercial)

phromthep cape is perfect for watching the sunset - just make sure to get there a little earlier to get the best spot or head down to the restaurant at the bottom of the hill.. delicious Thai food and a great view !

The platform area can be extremely crowded especially during sunset time. Suggest you to arrive a little bit earlier before the sunset, do a little hike towards the down hill cliff. Less crowded asides, it has the best sunset view spot of whole cape.

Most Thais told me I need to check this place out, but to be honest I didnt see the appeal. Its just a nice view and there are plenty of them that are nicer (and not so busy) on the road from naihard to kata

We just came back from there. We rented a scooter and drove there. The roads are good. Just use the GPS on your cell phone and you should be fine. Well worth the trip. If you go for the sunset it is a trade off as there... More
