The Panwa Cape

Stroll in Panwa Cape


The superb road that runs along the coast towards Cape Panwa is not really known, in any case, it is not very busy but offers a magnificent spectacle of softness with landscapes that I will never get tired of.

No shops, no bars on this road, flat calm if you can say so.

It's a delight to walk around here, early enough in the morning, before the heat gets hot.

Located facing Chalong Bay, and south of the city of Phuket, this walk I am offering you today is really pleasant and could be integrated into the "Tour of the Island" tour offered by travel agencies.
Cape Panwa is at the very end of this road.

The only thing that's a little unfortunate is that this ride is quite short, at most 10 kilometers between the beginning and the arrival at the Aquarium....

The stop at the Khao-Khad tower and the visit of the aquarium added to the walk, this exit can take about 2 to 3 hours without hurrying...


Many agencies offer a tour of the island by van (minibus) but this coast rarely appears on their route, yet the panorama is splendid.






At this point, the Klong Mu-Dong flows into Chalong Bay.

















A group of fishermen who come home quietly....
Here, we start fishing very early, even before sunrise, in order to avoid the hot weather...



After a few hundred meters, we find ourselves on this
beautiful road named.... Ao-Yon Khaokhad Road....







To the right is Chalong Bay, from which you can see some boats,
then in the centre, the tip of Laem Ka which is part of Rawai and on the left, the island of Koh Lon

Turning a little bit more than the previous picture, Chalong Bay and the "Big Buddha" 

(the tiny white spot on the top of the mountain) that dominates the whole region.

A zoom on the "Big Buddha" this huge statue 45m high
which is located at an altitude of about 370m

These small and very practical shelters allow you to contemplate this exceptional landscape as far as the eye can see while remaining in the shade...





Up there, the Khao-Khad tower....

This tower is located at the top of a mountain at an altitude of about 158 meters,
offers a panoramic view of great beauty....

All that remains is to climb the 140 steps that lead to the summit....
It's only 9am, it's not hot, it should be a pleasure...
In the middle of the afternoon, I promise you a nice sweat...

And here we are, 
all that remains is to contemplate the landscape over 360°.

On this side.... Chalong and its bay

On the other hand.... Phuket-Town....



Focus on Koh Phi Phi Phi (40km away)

Back on the coastal road I had taken earlier.
I will focus a little bit on the modern buildings along the road.



Other buildings here and there, sometimes very beautiful

Sometimes quite ordinary... but with a beautiful view of the bay







Finally... a house with an old style,
with bricks in the purest style of the country....
Unfortunately, I have to settle for external views....
Don't come in whoever wants....


And then the style of a small roadside restaurant that I love...
Typically Thai, without «bling-bling»



We leave the Khao-Khad tower and arrive a few minutes later
at the Phuket aquarium.

Here, on the right, the big white building in the trees is the aquarium

The Video

I even suggest you to watch one of my videos made at this place
during a solo stroll....
