If you come to Phuket to go around the island, ask me where I am most worth going, then I will not hesitate to tell you, the fairy peninsula. As you stand on the corner road, watching the golden scales on the sea level, the clouds in the sky are a layer of pink, a layer of purple, a layer of golden glow... want the freshest, most practical view Sunset guide, let me go
Origin of name
Many friends may be curious, why is it called the Immortal Peninsula? Is there really a god living on it? In fact, the origin of the name "Imperial Peninsula" is due to the worship of a fairy peninsula on the observation deck.
The history of the Immortal Peninsula can be derived from the inadvertent discovery of the place when the former navigator traveled from the mainland peninsula of Peninsular Malaysia, opening up the history of the Immortal Peninsula and becoming a well-known place for navigators and crew.
Netizen @zzxiu: We walked around the beach for a while, sitting on the stone wall and waiting for the sun to slowly descend, and took a lot of funny photos against the sea. There are many foreign tourists here, and many Thai locals are also seen. Everyone is quietly waiting for the sunset to fall. Different people enjoy this wonderful time here. The sun slowly descended to the surface of the sea, and the surrounding clouds all turned orange-red, reflecting the trees covered with a red film, which was really beautiful. Unfortunately, the time reserved by the driver is not accurate. It is the most beautiful time we have to leave. When you are sitting in the car, you can see that the entire sky is red, and this scene is really hard to see in the airy city.
The Shenxian Peninsula is located at the southernmost tip of Phuket. It not only sees the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean and the beautiful sunsets in the evening, but also the round stones under the walls. The palm trees are intertwined with the unique coastal flavor of Southeast Asia, the whirlpool of ocean currents and the magnificent waves. momentum. It can be said that I have never been to Phuket since I have never been to the Immortal Peninsula.
The Shenxian Peninsula is located at the southernmost tip of Phuket and is named after a four-faced Buddha on the viewing platform. The spectacular rock wall landscape, the swirling currents of the sea and the magnificent momentum of the waves are the main scenic features of the Shenxian Peninsula. It is a great place to watch the sunset. There are no buildings or jungles to block the view, and you can watch the changes of the sunset in seconds. The secret base mentioned in the Thai film "The Big Three, I Love You" is here, and many fans also come to follow the film's footprint.
how can I get there
From Patong or Phuket Town, take a sudden car, go south along the 4021 national road for about 10 kilometers, turn to the 4024 national road and continue south for 8 kilometers, it takes about 40 minutes.
You can also choose to rent a motorbike to ride around the island.
The sudden car is about 600 baht per vehicle; rent a motorcycle for about 200 baht a day.
If you rent your own motorcycle around the island, you can play with the ride below.
If you don't have a cycling experience, don't try to ride a motorcycle around the island. Phuket is steep and you need to be cautious when riding a motorcycle.
Netizen @moon薇漾: It took about half an hour to drive from Karon Beach. It’s not sunny when I go, but the scenery is really beautiful! If there are not so many tourists, there will probably be a sense of desolateness at the end of the world. The wind is very big. If you want to take pictures, it is recommended to simply tie your hair up, otherwise you may get a lot of expression packs. Motorbike travel is very recommended, it is very free, you can also watch the scenery of the island all the way.
Netizen @小小小艾琳: Check the sunset time of the day at around 6:35 in advance. When we went to the Shenxian Peninsula, it was nearly 6 o'clock. We rushed to the landscape platform. The surrounding area was full of people and it was difficult to find. A good view. So I continued to go down, found a piece of reef sitting down, quietly watching the red sun in the distance, slowly sinking to the surface of the sea.
Tips: The mountain road here in Phuket is turning, the distance will be much longer than the straight line shown, and more time is needed. When you look at the sunset on the fairy peninsula, it is best to go back an hour or so!
Netizen @aceunique: The sunset here is really superb. There is a full open sea area of about 270 degrees. You can see a very pure sunset, but you must take a good position in advance. We were on a temporary basis, so we drove a small motorcycle in the past, and it was a little late, so we must go early. On the way back, the sky was all dark, and I took the wrong road and accidentally drove to a hill, but I also saw a very beautiful night scene. It’s also a good thing.
User @水瓶座のlucky: Actually, I think the most beautiful thing is not the fairy peninsula, but the road to the fairy peninsula, the winding mountain road. This kind of beauty must be biked to feel, and you can stop at any time when you want to stop. Standing on the fairy peninsula to watch the sunset is another beauty, and it is completely different from what you see on the beach. I suggest everyone to experience it.
What time is the best in the Shenxian Peninsula?
Generally speaking, it is best to come to the fairy peninsula to watch the sunrise in the evening. The sunset in Phuket is generally between 6:00-6:30. It is recommended to arrive before sunset. Try to choose sunny weather to get better. Oh.
Sunset photo guide
If you have time to catch up with friends, you can enjoy the sunset directly on the road, avoiding the time of climbing, and the horizon is relatively wide. I want to shoot a "stunning" blockbuster with the setting sun. You can choose to shoot backlit and collect the silhouette. The example is as follows↓
Of course, you can also choose to climb the hillside behind, but this mountain road is steep, it is recommended that families with children and the elderly try not to choose. However, after climbing to the top of the mountain, the horizon will be wider than on the road, and there will be relatively few visitors. Suitable for taking pictures
There is still something to go around the Shenxian Peninsula.
Rawai Seafood Market
To the northeast of the Shenxian Peninsula is the Rawai Seafood Market, where seafood is the freshest in Phuket, and fish caught by fishermen every day are sold here. After watching the sunset, come to the Rawai Seafood Market for a full meal.

Tips for buying seafood: the market is on the right side of the seafood stall, on the left is the processing restaurant, after the selection is good, you must kill the price, generally go to one-third
Must-order food: salt and pepper skin shrimp, cream tiger shrimp, peeing shrimp
Nai Harn Beach
The northwestern side of the Shenxian Peninsula is Nai Harn Beach, one of the top ten beaches in Phuket. There are relatively few people here in Patong Beach, most of them are Europeans and Americans, where you can enjoy a leisurely vacation by renting a beach chair. Time

It stands on the observation deck and overlooks the best locations of the three bays of Big, Little Kata and Karen.
