       PHUKET  INFORMATION



     Phuket, a large island in the Indian Ocean, is 867 kms. from Bangkok. It is the only island   having   provincial status, and was a regional headquarters as well, with a rich and colorful   history.PHUKET INFORMATION


     Known as the Pearl of the Andaman, it derived much of its former glory and   its enormous wealth from tin production, which in Phuket dates back over   500   year. Today, Phuket is the major tourist attraction of Thailand with   hotels of   all price ranges.


     The surrounding waters contain much varied  marine life, and the town is   notable for its Sino-Portuguese architecture. It is a very attractive island for   sightseeing, with   lovely seashores and forested hillsides. Its population of   1.6 million people ranks sixth among   all provinces. Approximately 1.75 million Rai of the area is   forest land. The main occupation here   is rice farming. The average per capita income is 14,343   Baht.


     Geography
     About 70 percent of Phuket is mountainous; a western range runs from north to south from   which smaller branches derive. The highest peak is Mai Tha Sip Song, or Twelve Canes, at 529   meters, which lies within the boundaries of Tambon Patong, Kathu District. The remaining 30   percent of the island, mainly in the center and south, is formed by low plains. Streams include   the   Khlong Bang Yai, Tha Jin, Khlong Tha Rua, and Khlong Bang Rong, none of which is large.


     Economy
     Since the early 1980's the tourist business has been Phuket's chief source of income. Hotels,   restaurants, tour companies, and souvenir shops are much in evidence on the west coast.   However, while once all-importance tin mining has ceased, tourism is by no means the island's   only activity. Agriculture remains important to a large number of people, and covers by far the   most part of the island. Principal crops are rubber, coconuts, cashews, and pineapples.


     Prawn farming has largely taken over the east and south coasts. Pearl farming is also   important. Phuket's fishing port is at all time filled, and processing of marine products, mainly   fish,   makes a significant contribution to the economy. With so many healthy industries supplying   income, construction has become a major factor in employment. This range from massive public   works projects, large office buildings and hotels, and housing estates with hundreds of units,   down to single family homes, apartments and additions.


     Population
     Official population as of December, 1998, was 231,206. This figure numbers those who are   registered as living in Phuket. Phuket' s attraction as a center of economic activity has resulted in   many living on the island whose registration is elsewhere. The total population of Phuket varies   considerably depending on the time of year, through it is never less than the figure given above.


     Government
     The island is divided into three districts, Thalang in the north, Kathu in the west, and Muang in   the south. Thailand's system of government relies upon a strong central authority, thus the   Provincial Governor is a civil servant appointed by the Interior Ministry in Bangkok, as are the Nai   Amphoe, or District Chief. The cities of Phuket and Patong have their own city governments, with   elected city councils, the leading members of which serve as mayor. There are also elected   provincial, district, and sub-district, or Tambon councils. The local constabulary is part of the   Interior Ministry.
