Ponthep Cape

Promthep Cape is one of the most photographed locations in Phuket. Every evening, tour buses, scooters and private cars sweep through Rawai Beach and up the island's southernmost hill to watch the sunset, which can also be spelt as 'Phromthep Cape' (though it's said the same way). There's also a lighthouse displaying interesting historical maritime artefacts here. It commands spectacular views over the east and southeast of the island and its environs.

Nai Harn Beach

Nai Harn Beach is a quiet, compact seaside resort with a village atmosphere and a slightly hippy vibe. Simple shops sell beachwear and Thai crafts, while casual restaurants specialize in local cuisine. Visitors walk the peaceful grounds of Buddhist monastery Wat Nai Harn, and tree-fringed, freshwater Nai Harn Lake is popular for jogging and paddleboating. Nai Harn Beach itself is known for its fine sand.

Big Buddha

Phuket Big Buddha, or The Great Buddha of Phuket, is a seated Maravija Buddha statue in Phuket, Thailand. The official name is Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol Eknakiri, shortened to Ming Mongkol Buddha. Sitting atop Nakkerd Hill near Chalong, construction began in 2004. Expansion of the base was ongoing as of 2015.
