Thailand – Mysterious Sunrise and Magical Sunset, Phuket

Nai Yang, Phuket, Thailand, May 2017: Online research will often reveal references to Phuket’s magical sunsets but very little about the sunrise. So lets put that right – right now. Being non-alcoholic it must follow then that I don’t have hangovers and thus can arise at silly hours of the morning. Like today for example, up at 4.30 am for an hours drive North to catch the Sunrise at 6.  No i haven’t hired a car, or scooter but thanks to the generosity of the guesthouse owner, 2 of us are being driven to a view point somewhere on the Northeastern coastline just across the islands bridge with the mainland (Google Map) .

Sunrise: Once across the bridge ,a route meanders through rustic villages situated between jungle clad hills – its almost a step back in time. Narrow concreted roads, deserted this time of the morning as twilight breaks in the distance. Eventually a sign indicating the way up. Up into the hillsides to a viewpoint, and just in time to witness the mysterious, magical sunrise – quiet, not a breath of air, not even the birds have woken yet!

What do you make of this? Worth the effort? Comment with your descriptions, thanks.

Sunset: Sunsets on Phuket are a whole lot easier to catch once those hangovers are done with, or not as the case maybe. Just stumble over to a west facing beach and wait.

Wait for the magical sunsets like this one captured at Nai Yang.
