Top Ten things to know about Phuket for beginners


The largest island in the whole country of Thailand goes by the name of Phuket. You can find it in the Andaman Sea, and it is 878 kilometers north of the equator. The main language is of course Thai, but if you find yourself frequenting the west coast or commercial areas, you will probably find locals who speak English as well. The majority of locals are Buddhist, but there is a large community of Muslims as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Phuket is found in the Andaman Sea, which is actually rare when considering the rest of Thailand’s famous islands.
  • Most of the people who live in the province are Buddhist, but you can also find some Muslims.
  • Thai is the official language of the island, but you can get away with just speaking English in some areas in the west.
