Promthep Cape
When visiting Phuket you will no doubt see postcards of beautiful sunsets. These were taken at Promthep Cape. Promthep Cape is located at the southernmost point of Phuket Island and offers a spectacular view of the sea and coastline. At sunset it becomes a very popular point with hordes of tourists all descending on the same space in hopes of capturing a beautiful sunset. Unfortunately we would not catch a magnificent sunset, but it was still an enjoyable experience.

at Promthep Cape. The sign indicates approximate
times for sunset throughout the year

Promthep Cape is a small peninsula
that juts out into the water. On the ridge
are several palm trees which silhouette
when the Sun is setting

Looking for the perfect place to take the picture. The diver's sign
for OK to let Anne know what I thought of the position

With the perfect site selected from which to take my pictures Anne and I positioned ourselves and began the long wait for the Sun to actually set. While it wasn't a spectacular sunset (like you see in the postcards) it was still descent and worth the trip and the wait. Enjoy the pictures ...

And, with the setting Sun, our time in Phuket is over. Now we travel to our final destination before returning home ... Japan. Join us there on the next page ...
