Fodor's Expert Review Khao Rang

Phuket Town Viewpoint

If you want to get your bearings, there's a fine view of Phuket Town, the island's interior, and even the 45-meter-high Big Buddha from atop Khao Rang, a hill northwest of town. It can be a tricky drive—you'll need to watch carefully for street signs, as many aren't marked or are covered by foliage, but it's worth it if you want to get a fresh perspective. From the town's center, take either Ranong or Thalang Road west and turn north on Kho Sim Bi Road. Follow the winding, ascending, forested road. There are a few restaurants and a picnic area once you reach the top, where you can relax and soak in the views.
