Phuket Windmill Observation Deck - by the Windmill

I do not know what angle to look atwind generators to call them windmills, but the toponym has taken root among the people and even entrenched itself on Google maps. The observation deck of the Windmill in Phuket is equipped with a major structure - a gazebo with benches. This is one of the best observation platforms on the island, albeit with a small parking (in fact, the side of the road) and is not always cleared of the rubbish that night bipeds leave. From here there is a magnificent view of the islet of Man, and the beaches Naiharn and Janui.

Windmill in Phuket

Promthep Alternative Energy Station - socalled the power plant, which is engaged in the extraction of electricity using altrenativnyh sources - wind generators and solar panels. The place for this is chosen more than successfully, the top of the hill here is open to all winds and the sun. The observation deck is easily accessible, during the day there are practically no tourists, but the panoramic view is almost 360 degrees, and in the evening there are stunning sunsets. Next door is a jump site for paragliders, which only add color to the photos, which are so exceptionally beautiful.

In addition to the name "Windmill", the placecalled: lookout with a wind turbine, Wind Mill Viewpoint, lookout near Nai Harn. In general, if someone will talk about something like this, then you will understand what it is about. Actually, apart from the view, there is nothing more. Down on both sides there are 2 good beachs, and a little further away, another 5 minutes on the bike will be cape promtepwhere there is also a lookout. Only there are many more tourists, as they are brought there by buses.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

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.
