We couldn’t help believe that this southern province in Thailand was damaged heavily when the December 2004 massive tsunami struck most of Patong, Kamala, Karon and Kata beachfront off the west coast caused by the Indian Ocean earthquake on 26 December 2004.
Jump to the present and Phuket has long been restored and recovered from the disaster.
Today, Phuket still stands as a one-stop tourist destination where varieties of cultural and recreational finds can be discovered in this province formerly known as Thalang.
The culture of Thailand, according to Wikipedia, “incorporates cultural beliefs and characteristics indigenous to the area known as modern day Thailand coupled with much influence from ancient India, China, Cambodia, along with the neighboring pre-historic cultures of Southeast Asia.”
For tourists, a leisure on Phuket’s beaches and shores are great moments for escapades and adventures. Island hopping is very common and the popular James Bond Island is a must or your trip to Phuket would never be completed. This island, known among locals as Koh Tapu, became famous through the 1974 James Bond film – The Man with the Golden Gun.
Patong beach boasts popularity as similar to Philippine‘s Boracay Island and is thriving loud with night life entertainment along the streets of Bang La.
For the most adventurous, trekking, white water rafting, ATV and elephant rides are the most common agendas when visiting Phuket.
