Rang Hill Viewpoint in Phuket Town

Khao Rang Hill Viewpoint

Khao Rang Hill has always been a viewpoint at the top of a famous hill in Phuket town. It’s not strikingly beautiful and not very high either, but it’s a pleasant stop. A lot of youngsters go there for a selfie and a romantic moment.

In recent years they added a Gazebo and a platform to allow visitors to enjoy a better view over Phuket Town and the sea beyond. Just keep in mind that there is a growing amount of monkeys on this hill, and while they appear quiet, they can be unpredictable. Never feed them or even tease them.

Where to Eat on Khao Rang Viewpoint?

Three panoramic restaurants add some reasons to drive up there for a lunch or a dinner with a view: Tunk Ka Cafe, Khao Rang Breeze and Phuket View. Our preference, the quality of the food and overall experience rank in this order.

Tunk Ka Cafe Phuket

Tunk Ka Cafe and it’s green surrounding has always been one of our favourites. It was a modest restaurant 20 years ago, but it got busy quite fast and started to expand, adding more wooden terraces between the trees. Tunk Ka restaurant they even added their own ‘panoramic platform’ for guests to walk around and get beautiful sunset photos.

What to Do at Rang Hill Viewpoint?

You might not travel a long way to visit Rang Hill Viewpoint, but if you happen to be around Phuket Town, you can make a stop before going back to your beach resort. Parking is usually not too complicated, and it’s not unusual to see monkeys. Don’t miss the giant golden sitting Buddha of Wat Khao Rang on the way down.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
