If you are visiting to Phuket or planning a trip to see the island at some point you are probably going to see a sunset. No matter where you view it is normally a very impressive sight, beautiful color mixed in the sky with fluffy clouds created from the ocean surrounding the island. Most people when visiting at some point even make an effort to go see a sunset. We all have our reasons. For some it's romance, the idea of taking a special someone for a romantic view or to add that extra bit of wow to a first date. For others it's to enjoy the show in a different place than they usually see it. For me it's normally to get a clean photograph with some interesting silhouettes or some other point of interest in the shot. I do love it when the sun reflects off the water and creates some depth to an image as it stretches out from the horizon.

As part of an initiative and PR stunt last week, Thailand's Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul was at the Siam BTS public transport terminal handing out free face masks to commuters using the Bangkok Skytrain. Apparently some foreign tourists did not accept or wear the masks which led to a derogatory outburst making statement that it was all "farangs" refusing and "that's something the embassys should be notified about". Further more the minister went on to suggest they "should be kicked out".
Located in Rawai just past Karon View Point heading South or just past Promthep Cape heading North, Windmill Viewpoint is one of the best places to sit and watch a sunset.
