Kao Khad Views Tower in Phuket - the best viewing platform at 360 degrees

Do you love viewpoints the way I love them? So you know for sure that the panoramic viewing platforms are the best that can happen to you when you choose a place for beautiful photos. Khao Khad View Tower, or Khao Kad Lookout Tower in Phuket is one of those great places. Interestingly, it surpassed and Monkey Hill with his monkeys and lookout Rang Hill with its restaurants. Not only that the location itself in this part of the island has a rather serious elevation, so the Thais also jumped in and built a tower on the mountain. Large, three-tier tower.

Kao Khad Views Tower

Kao Khad Views Toweris about 12 meters, as stated on the stand describing the attractions. It seemed to me (and this is strange), but the lookout tower of Khao Kad is not a very popular place, but it is here that it makes sense to go to every lover of good views. Authentic building with a large parking at the base of the stairs, amazing view, deserted - for me it is the best viewing platform in Phuket with a panoramic view. The view is not obstructed, you have no palm tree tops or the slopes of a nearby hill - here you can calmly stare in all directions. The tower is located on a high, but such a wide hill, that the height is not noticeable while climbing up the serpentine.

I read somewhere that it is abandoned, howeverin fact, in February 2017, the entire area around the Kao Khad Views Tower was removed, the bushes were cut, the beds were watered and the workers near the parking lot were renovating the roofs of the tents. As I understand it, it is planned to expand the development here, or it makes a platform for shops and will sell something here. At the time of my arrival, only one stall worked with every tourist souvenir trifle. Also, a little green building appeared on the other side of the hill, also under construction.

I have a feeling that if a viewpoint wasabandoned, it is now obvious that they decided to do it. The money in the upgrading of the territory is invested, and the result on the exhaust is very positive. The entrance is still free, I hope it will remain so. The only thing that, in my opinion, is not ice is the fact that there is a place not far from Phuket Town and it will take a long time to go from the west coast, where the majority of visiting tourists rest. The view from the tower opens really chic. Especially in good weather you can see small islands around Phuket, neighboring bays, in general - I recommend.

If the barrier is closed, you can leave the car in front of it and go on foot.

Information to visit

Opening hours - from 6 am to 19 hours, and in fact - fromdawn to dusk. Before the exit to the tower there is a barrier on which it is written that Kao Khad Views Tower is open from 9 to 18, but it seems to me that no one bothers to leave the transport near the barrier and continue on foot if you suddenly decide to get here at another time. The only time is that the barrier is at the bottom of the hill, so you will have to climb on foot. The road on the hill is quite steep.

Inside the tower there is a schematic depiction of objects below - convenient and informative, pay attention to this.

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
