Kao Khad View Tower, or Khao Kad Lookout Tower in Phuket is one of such wonderful places. By interest it surpassed and Monkey Hill with its monkeys, and the viewing Rang Hill with its restaurants. Few that the location itself in this part of the island has quite a serious hill, so also the Thais jumped in and built on the mountain tower. Large, three-tier tower.

Kao Khad Views Tower
Kao Kad Views Tower is about 12 meters, as stated on the stand with a description attractions. It seemed to me (and this is strange), but Khao Kad observation tower is not a very popular place, however here it makes sense to go to every lover of good views. Authentic building with large parking at the base of the stairs, awesome view, deserted – for me it is the best lookout Phuket Playground with a panoramic view. The view is not blocked, no to you the tops of the palm trees or the slopes of a nearby hill – here You can calmly stare in all directions. The tower is located on a high but so wide hill that the height is not striking, while climbing up the serpentine.
I read somewhere that it was abandoned, but in fact, in February On 2017, the entire area around Kao Khad Views Tower was removed, the bushes are trimmed, the beds are watered and the workers near the parking lot updated roof tents. As I understand it, it is planned to expand the development, or is it making a platform for shops and something will be here sell. At the time of my arrival, only one stall worked any tourist souvenir trifle. Also a little different a green building appeared on the side of the hill, also in the process construction.
I have a feeling that if the viewpoint was abandoned, then Now it’s obvious that they decided to do it. Money in upgrading the territory is invested, and the result is on the exhaust It turns out very positive. The entrance is free, I hope so it will remain. The only thing that in my opinion, not ice – that The fact that there is a place near Phuket Town and go with West Coast, where the bulk of the visiting tourists, take a long time. The view from the tower opens really chic. Especially in good weather you can see small islands around Phuket, neighboring bays, in general – I recommend.
If the barrier is closed, you can leave the car in front of it and go on foot

Information to visit
Opening hours – from 6 am to 19 hours, and in fact – from dawn to sunset Before the congress to the tower there is a barrier on which it is written that Kao Khad Views Tower is open from 9 to 18, but it seems to me that no one bothers to leave the transport around the barrier and go on on foot, if you suddenly decide to get here at another time. Only the moment is that the barrier is at the bottom of the hill so climb have to walk. The road on the hill is quite steep.
Inside the tower there is a schematic depiction of objects located below – convenient and informative, pay attention to it.
