Many people ask “Is Phuket an Island?” the answer is yes, in fact it is Thailand’s largest island! It is just an hour south of Khao Lak, accessible from the Sarasin bridge connecting Phuket Island with Phang Nga province.
Phuket is rich with history as it was once one of the main trading routes between China and India. In the past the main industry was from the rubber and tin trades, however, these days the island’s main source of income is from Tourism.
