About Phuket

Phuket is a province in Thailand and the country's largest island located on the southwest coast. This island has the country's highest average income where tourism and rubber plantations are the main reasons for this. There are numerous beaches such as Karon Beach, Kata Beach and Patong Beach. These beaches are annually crowded by tourists from all over the world. This has contributed to Phuket no longer being so genuinely Thai.
