Andaman Coast

"Whoever have visited to this island,surely they will come here again.."


Phuket , formerly known as Thalang  and, in Western sources, Jungceylon (a corruption of the Malay Tanjung Salang, i.e. "Cape Salang"),is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighbouring provinces are (from north clockwise) Phang-Nga and Krabi, but as Phuket is an island it has no land boundaries.

Phuket, which is approximately the size of Singapore, is Thailand’s largest island. The island is connected to mainland Thailand by two bridges. It is situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoys a rich and colorful history. The island was on one of the major trading routes between China and India.

Located 867 kilometres south of Bangkok, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, shaped like an irregular pearl and measuring approximately 21 kilometres long. Connected to the mainland by a causeway, it has a coastline fringed with white sandy beaches and quiet coves, bathed by the clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea and set against a backdrop of green hills, coconut groves and rubber plantations.
