Phuket, People, Places, What To Do

Phuket, People, Places and What to do is all about exactly that, our look at what this tropical Paradise Phuket has to offer.

Phuket Island (pronounced puu gèt) (ภูเก็ต) , is Thailand’s largest at 48km in length and 21km at its widest. It’s in Southern Thailand, on the west-facing Andaman Sea coastline, suspended from the southern tip of Phang Nga Province by a pair of short but substantial road bridges.

Phuket is one of Thailand’s wealthiest provinces and nestled on the Andaman Sea.

The Phuket island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China and was frequently mentioned in foreign trader’s ship logs.

In recent times, though, Phuket’s top earner has been tourism, which has transformed the island into Thailand’s wealthiest province.

There have been many changes in Phuket since the military coup in 2014, the biggest being the removal of commercial activities on the beaches and public land.

Changes continue with the prime objective of making Phuket better.

With over 3 million visitors per year something had to be done and so far the changes are having a positive impact, environmentally whilst improving tourism.

The Phuket vegetarian festival is an annual event held during the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar, usually early October.

The Vegetarian Festival, or jia chai as it is known in local Hokkien Chinese, began in 1825.

The festival is mainly centered around the middle of Phuket, Phuket Town and Kathu.
