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 180 panoramic view of Patong. Wassa is nothing more than just a few little huts with terraces, is all made of wood and thatched roofs, surrounded by trees and greenery. This popular viewpoint is a nice place to treat yourself with a cold drink, some snacks or Thai food at the end of a hot day in Phuket.
The large wooden terrace at Wassa Homemade Bar is great to chill for hours and enjoy the ever-changing ‘cloudscape’ over the sea while enjoying your drinks. Another smaller platform was added in front of the bar to accommodate more customers.
Surprisingly, the raining 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. Keep in mind that this place is still private property, and you must buy something if you plan to stay and take photos. It seems obvious, but a lot of people seem to forget this basic fact.
How to Get There
The best way to go to Wassa 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, which is accessible from Pisitgoranee road. On the map below, we traced the way from Jungceylon, that should give you a good clue (about 4 km from the mall).
There is a sign at the entrance of the small street that leads 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.
