Local time in Phuket

Ko Phuket.com         Site Map
Thailand's dreamy island province of Phuket Island (Ko Phuket) in the Andaman sea is the Pearl of the South and entices numerous vistors time and time again, being world renowned as a tourist paradise.

The name Phuket is derived from two Thai words, phu (mountain) of ket (jewel), and this is recorded in a Thai chronicle.

With its magnificient white sandy palm-fringed beaches and bays, its crystal blue island-dotted waters, its fantastic underwater scenery, its luxuriant vegetation, its calm and relaxing tropical atmosphere in combination with an enthusiastic shopping and night-life experience, its sincerely hospitable and friendly people, its superb accomodation, its mouth-watering seafood and international and local cuisine, its delightful turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese architecture, and its numerous sporting and leisure opportunities, Phuket truly offers a memorable holiday.

Suffice to say it probably needs no further indroduction. The lifestyle says it all.
