Why Khao Rang View Point is special ?

Rang Hill (Khao Rang) is found on the north side of Phuket Town and is a popular gathering place for locals in the evenings or at weekends and quite a lot of tours take a quick drive up here too. There are 3 different roads up to the top from the south and east sides of the hill (check the map at the end of the page). The main route starts on Mae Luan road next to the Rang Hill Dental Clinic (which we use!). There's a big sign at the corner saying "Khao Rang". The road is shady and well kept. You pass a restaurant called Phuket View on the way up - must try it one day! And finally reach a parking area with a little park in the center at the top of the hill. It is walkable, though a hot walk of about a mile from the bottom. It's not one of Phuket's highest hills, the top is about 140m above sea level, compared to nearby Monkey Hill about 270m high (the one with all the aerials on top) and Phuket's high point is well over 500m above sea level.

What to explore at Khao Rang View Point?

Featuring a nicely landscaped park with children’s playground, three restaurants and bars, a fitness park, and a newly built (in 2014) panoramic terrace officialising the viewpoint status of Khao Rang’s summit, the place is attractive and offers its visitors a breath of fresh air in the capital of Phuket Island.

View from Rang Hill looking Southwest to Chalong - and you can just see the hill with the Big Buddha on the far right of the photo. From the main viewpoint you can't see much of Phuket Town which is mostly to the Southeast of the hill. But the view to the west and south is nice with all the hills. Not a spectacular view, but pleasant, and since there's a carpark and place to eat, people come.

A good way to spend an afternoon or morning in Phuket. An hour or so scenic walk up the windy hill road from town. Stop off at an extensive Buddhist Temple complex half-way up the hill with a quite big sitting Buddha watching over Phuket Town. At the summit there are plces to eat and drink and other facilities. Whilst not a 360 dgree view at the top there is nevertheless an excellent view east and north with stunning views of the sea, the islands and the town. Well worth the trip - and it's free!!!

We loved the view point from up the hill, it's lovely, so very green and to top it all off, there are monkeys!There are a couple of restaurants that look good to eat in and little shops to buy water and ice cream.It's clean enough and safe.
