After beaches and islands, we decided to go south of the Island to the famous viewpoints to enjoy the scenery. The first place we went to was the Karon View Point, which is around 30-45 minutes drive from Patong Beach area depending on the traffic and whether or not you use the right way. :D It was relatively easy to get to as the roads were very direct and we reached even before we realized that. Oh ya, we rented a car for around RM130 per day, and the fuel costed us around RM70 for the whole day (yes the fuel is relatively more expensive compared to Malaysia).
Karon view point allowed you to see the 3 beaches (Kata Noi, Kata and Karon). Rumours said you could see Patong beach from here but I wasn't able to identity the Patong beach when I was there. :) The scenery was very good, and when we were there, it was very serene.
the three beaches
aha! that's me, again. LOL..
Karon View Point. You won't miss the sign if you drive on the right road. :P
Next up, Prom Thep View Point, for the beautiful sunset.
