Khao Rang information
For a bird’s-eye view of the city, climb (or drive) up Khao Rang, northwest of the town centre. It’s at its best during the week, when the summit is relatively peaceful, but keep an eye out for the mobs of snarling dogs. If Phuket is indeed a corruption of the Malay word bukit (hill), then this is probably its namesake.
