Samet Nangshe Viewpoint

  View Point on Phang Nga Bay

Really not very far from Phuket.... we find this magnificent viewpoint offering a landscape of all splendor: part of the bay of Phang Nga...

All you have to do is cross the Sarasin bridge that connects the island of Phuket to the rest of the country... and then drive a few kilometers...
There are several places to access this panoramic view.

At this particular place called Samet Nangshee Boutique, we had to leave the car at the bottom of the mountain, buy a ticket for 90 THB/pers. and a few minutes later, a pickup truck dropped us off higher.

The path is very steep, slippery, sandy...

At the top, there is a small restaurant (we ate a delicious Khao Pad Khai, and you will also find small wooden bungalows, so you can spend the night there and be there when the sun rises on the bay...

It must be beautiful... so, in the planning stages on my side...


That day, the sky was very busy... but these clouds finally gave a very particular aspect. 

  Eat and sleep on site....

You will find a small restaurant (excellent and cheap at all), as well as a number of small wooden bungalows, ideal to be on site in the early morning to watch the sunrise...

Information taken, a small bungalow costs 700 THB per night.

That day, a heavy weather was coming and threatening the whole region. The superbly charged sky a few minutes earlier was getting very dark and we were barely escaping a heavy tropical shower....
