Sunset View at Promthep Cape
This is the place that I always wanted to visit prior to my earlier trips to Phuket. My first trip to Phuket was in 1992 and it was my first ever trip to Thailand. I can still recalled clearly that I’ve visited a beautiful cape and it was during this recent trip, I’ve realize that is called the Promthep Cape.
It was late, and the sun has begun to set. At the time, I was travelling with an Indonesian blogger named Wahyu. We both were anxious and hoping to get there before dark and during our ride, I managed to snap a few pictures of the beautiful skies.
Within minutes, we arrived at the parking bays of Promthep Cape. I quickly jumped out and ran up the stairs with my camera and almost slipped. I kept on running and Wahyu was not far from behind.
As soon as I reached the cape, I began to capture the beautiful sunset with my camera. It was difficult to express how nostalgic it was to come back to Promthep Cape again after more than 18 years!

I was there for less than 10 minutes before the sky turned dark.
The sun set within less than 5 minutes but I was happy enough to be able to capture few great shots. After feeling amaze with the view once more, Wahyu and I had called it a day.
I am so in love with Promthep Cape mainly due to the amazing view and Wahyu can attest to it. Promthep Cape is one place in Phuket I wouldn’t mind going again, and this time it will be with Rachel.
