Views from Rang Hill (Phuket Town)

Rang Hill (Khao Rang) is located on the north side of Phuket town and is a popular gathering place in the evenings and a fairly commonly visited viewpoint, on the itineraries of tours. There's a well known cafe (Tunk Ka Cafe) on the top, which does food and great iced coffee. There are views over parts of Phuket City and also across to Chalong Bay and Buddha Mountain. We go up there now and then for a little walk and a bit of fresh air. There are several access roads, one of which is just behind one of our favourite restaurants - Dairy Hut, on a side road next to the Phuket Bangkok Hospital.

NOTE - this is an older blog post - I have now written a couple of new updates about Rang Hill - see Rang Hill (Khao Rang) 2013 and New Viewpoint at Rang Hill (2014).

Statue of Ratsada Korsimbi Na Ranong on Rang Hill

The statue above shows Ratsada Korsimbi Na Ranong, who was governor of Phuket around the turn of the 20th century. He came from a political family (his dad was governor of Ranong), and did a lot to put Phuket on the map, especially modernising the tin mining industry, overseeing the building of Bang Yai canal through Phuket Town, and he is also credited with bringing the rubber industry into THailand from Malaysia.
