Phuket’s Postcard Spots And Where To Find Them
Part of the fun of a vacation is taking the pictures, and memorializing the fun experience you had. Of course, not all pictures are taken equally, some places aren’t just photo-worthy, they’re postcard-worthy.
If you’re looking for that perfect postcard place for your photo after that boat charter in Phuket, then here’s a sample of what the island has to offer.
- Karon Viewpoint
- Karon Viewpoint, which was once known as the Kata Viewpoint, is one of the most visited spots in Phuket for sightseeing, which makes sense seeing as it offers a great view of three of Phuket’s white beaches: Kata Noi, Kata and Karon. It is located on the roadside that connects the Kata and Nai Harn beaches.
- Phuket’s Big Buddha
- The Big Buddha located in Phuket is one of the most notable landmarks in the island. Standing at 45 metres tall, it is perched high up on the top of the Nakkerd Hills, just off the main road connecting Wat Chalong and Chalong. The best time for a visit and a photo is early morning, as the statue faces towards the east.
- Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island
- Phang Nga Bay is a maritime park composed of 42 limestone islands that rise from the emerald waters of the bay like towers of earthen soil. An ode to Mother Nature with its magnificent caves, beautiful lagoons and picturesque flora and fauna, Phang Nga Bay is a great place to visit via the boat charter in Phuket, and a positively postcard worthy place for a photo.
- Promthep Cape Sunset
- One of the most photographed spots in Phuket, and for good reason. This cape is located and forms the southernmost tip of the island, and offers those who visit here a panoramic 180-degree vista of the surrounding sea, as well as three nearby islands. For the more adventurous sort, there’s a dirt track that leads to the southern tip of the cape, to be used at your own risk.
- Old Phuket Town and Thalang Road
- Established during Phuket’s tin mining days sometime late 19th century, Old Phuket Town boasts spectacular architectural heritage replete with vintage atmospheric charm. In short, perfect photo backdrop. The Sino-Portuguese architecture in the area remains well-maintained, having been renovated repeatedly in the past.
