General Information about Phuket for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals
Phuket is one of Thailand’s southern provinces consisting of the island of Phuket and other 32 smaller islands. It has a population of over 380,000 and used to be an important trading route between India and China. The majority of Phuket’s population is Buddhist, but it also has a significant number of Muslims (about 20% of its inhabitants). From the 16th to the 20th century, its economy relied mostly on tin mining and rubber tree plantations. Nowadays, Phuket’s wealth is drawn primarily from the tourism industry. The province attracts annually over 10 million of tourists and has been voted one of the world’s top five retirement destinations by the prestigious Fortune Magazine. Some of Phuket’s most visited landmarks include: the Two Heroines Monument, a memorial statue of the famous Thao Thep Kasattri (Kunying Jan) and Thao Sri Sunthon (Mook), who played a significant role in repelling Burmese invaders in 1785; the Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World, one of the few butterfly gardens still operational in Thailand; the Khao Phra Thaeo Wildlife Conservation Development and Extension Centre, an important centre for the study of the environment; the Big Buddha of Phuket, a 45 metres tall Buddha statue; the Old Phuket Town, featuring amazing pieces of architecture built in a Sino-Portuguese style; and a large variety of wonderful beaches, such as the Kamala Beach and the Karon beach.
