Prom Thep View Point, Phuket Thailand

After Karon View Point, another 20 minutes drive down the road you will reach Prom Thep View point, the place where it was declared to have the best sunset view in Phuket.

Along that 20 minutes drive, we passed by some elephants farms where you can ride the elephants. I had ridden an elephant before when I was in Bangkok, so I wasn't very interested in riding another one again. :D

As we reached Prom Thep View Point, it was still early for sunset. So we decided to take a detour to another road leading to a wind power generation plant. Interesting enough, we were welcomed with spectacular view.

View from the little point next to Prom Thep, nearby power generation plant. Wonderful isn't it? Seems like there's a private beach down there. 

Another side

Was tempted to run down to the shore, but I couldn't figure out the way to come up. lol..

Who's the handsome guy?

The wind wasn't turning at that time, so we wondered if the wind was strong enough?

But looking at the tree in front of the wind turbine, I guess the wind will be strong enough?

After snapping enough photos and enjoying the tranquil scenery, we proceeded to Prom Thep and waited for the sunset. But as we wandered around, we discovered there was a lighthouse at the viewpoint. And it was free of charge to enter, so being cheapskate and curious, we went in to pay a visit.

View from the lighthouse, not too bad, covered by trees but at least I saw one private yacht. :D 

the lighthouse, not very tall though

there was a big area in front of the lighthouse, for functions I guess? 

Plenty of people waiting for the sunset even at 5 pm

Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy that day so this was the best shot I could get of the sun before it was kidnapped by the clouds. :)
