Phuket is located approximately 862 kilometres south of Bangkok. Phuket is the largest island in the Andaman Sea in southern Thailand. In the early days of regional maritime trade, the cape of Phuket was locally referred to as Jung Ceylon, while locals called it “Thalang”. The island was a popular trading port for tin, welcoming merchants from many countries, and the island's long history has shaped the Phuket that we find today, with its diverse ethnic groups, culture, architectural influence, and global cuisine options.
These attributes have made Phuket a popular tourist destination that offers more than its natural heritage of crystal sea, white sand, green forest, and world-renowned attractions. Sino-Portuguese architecture casts its spell delighting travellers to the city, while the friendly Phuket style of hospitality has impressed visitors from around the world. The most popular tourist area on Phuket is Patong Beach, the center for entertainment, shopping, restaurants and street food vendors.
