by Tookta on November 3, 2010

Laem Phom Thep Cape is a headland forming the extreme south end of Phuket. “Phrom” is Thai for the Hindu term “Brahma”, signifying purity, and “Thep” is Thai for “God”. From Rawai Beach turn right and go for 2 kms. The caps has tall cliffs on the south, Local villagers used to refer to the cape as “Laem Chao”. or the God’s Cape, and it was an easily recognizable landmark for the early seafarers traveling up the Malay Peninsula from the sub continent. The cliffs running down to the boulders at the sea is a line of palm trees. Emerald green currents swirl in the deep water and breakers hurl themselves in vain against the rocky point : it is one of Phuket’s most inspiring vistas. From Phomthep Cape, which is the most beautiful place to catch Phuket’s famous sunset, a road leads northwest to Nai Han Beach.
