Wasn’t sure if it would be worth paying a visit as we were in a very rainy period but the views were still fantastic with working fishing area to one side and islands the other. Definitely worth a visit.

There's a lot to see from here as this viewpoint almost offers a view that's 180 degrees around you. There's a nice beach and bay area to see and the drive up isn't that long. There's some shops at the top aswell.

Car is able to reach the top hill. However, there is less than 20 car park provided. Good city & sea view at the top, very nice to click photo. Sunset view is super

Well worth the trip out to this relatively remote location. The views are absolutely amazing of this stunning coastline. Nice air conditioned coffee shop/snack bar to cool off in too!

Starting around 5:00 p.m., it is the best time to start your workout by the challenging climb to the summit of Khao Matsee Viewpoint. Majority of the tourists probably took the easy way by driving to the top. Some went to the mid-level and climb...More
