The name “Phuket” is apparently derived from the word bukit (in Malay) which means “hill”, as this is what the island appears like from a distance. An alternative suggestion is that the name originates from two Thai words, “phu” (mountain) of “ket” (jewel), and this is said to be recorded in a Thai chronicle.
Phuket was formerly known as Thalang (ถลาง Tha-Laang), derived from the old Malay “telong” which means “cape”. The northern district of the province, which was the location of the old capital, still uses this name. In Western sources and navigation charts, it was known as Jung Ceylon or Junkceylon.
Since the 1980s, the sandy beaches on the west coast of the island have been developed as tourist destinations, with Patong, Karon, and Kata being the most popular locations to purchase Phuket real estate and properties. Over the last 15 years Phuket has been intensely developed, with many new hotels, Condominiums and houses still under construction. A total of 5,080 additional hotel rooms are expected to be completed by 2016.
In July 2005, Phuket was voted one of the world’s top five retirement destinations by Fortune Magazine, and today there are thousands of expatriates living or doing business on Phuket.
