Khao Rang (Rang Hill in English) is the second highest summit in Phuket Town. Located in the north-western part of the city it is covered with lush vegetation and permit to take a breath of fresh air in a peaceful environment. Rang Hill summit is a famous for the views it offers out over the town and to Phuket Island’s south eastern coast and the islands lying off at a short distance (Phuket Big Buddha can also be seen from here). The other highlights of Khao Rang are a Buddhist temple – Wat Khao Rang – that features a large sitting golden Buddha (the first ever built in Phuket); an exercise park near the summit (slightly overrun but still usable); three restaurants – two of them, Tung Ka Café and Khao Rang Breeze are at the top of the hill while the third one, Phuket View, is located on the way up; and right next to Khao Rang Breeze restaurant, a beautifully landscaped grassy spot for picnickers with a bronze statue of the Governor of Phuket during King Rama V’s reign.
Opening Hours: Daily Location: two roads lead to the top of Khao Rang: one is right next to Vachira Hospital on Yaowarat Road, and the other starts off Mae Luan Road next to Cham Chae Joo Hoot shrine.
