Sunset Viewpoint Bar in Patong
Wassa Homemade Bar (or just Wassa Bar) is a modest little spot located high on the hill in the back of Patong Beach. You can go there from 4 pm to watch a sunset with a panoramic view of Patong. Wassa is just a few little huts with terraces made of wood and thatched roofs, surrounded by trees and greenery. This popular viewpoint is a nice place to treat yourself to a cold drink, snacks or Thai food at the end of a hot day in Phuket.
The large wooden terrace at Wassa Homemade Bar is great for chilling for hours and enjoying the ever-changing ‘cloudscape’ over the sea while enjoying your drinks. From there, you will easily recognize Jungceylon shopping mall and Patong Tower, one of the only tall buildings in Patong before the law against high-rise towers passed decades ago. Wassa Homemade Bar added another smaller platform in the front area of the bar to accommodate more customers, but this area if often reserved for VIPs.
Surprisingly, the rainy season might be the best time to take stunning photos, with massive clouds drifting over the ocean in front of the sun. They also serve decent Thai snacks and drinks at very affordable prices. Just for this panoramic view, it is worth the climb. Remember that this place is still private property, and you must buy something to stay and take photos. It seems obvious, but many people seem to forget this basic fact.
How to Get to Wassa Homemade Bar
The best way to go to Wassa Homemade Bar is probably by motorbike, but a Tuk Tuk might be able to get you there. You will need to reach the back road called 50 Pee Road, accessible from Pisitgoranee road. On the map below, we traced the way from Jungceylon, which should give you a good clue (about 4 km from the mall).
There is a sign at the small street entrance leading to the bar. Note that the slope is steep to reach up there. Enjoy, but don’t forget to order a drink before shooting! The atmosphere varies with the weather, and the staff can be more or less welcoming.
