The island of Phuket was first inhabited around the 1st century BC. Phuket later became part of the many Thai states from early in history and around the 16th century, the city was incorporated into the Ayutthaya kingdom.
Today, Phuket has grown into a major port, a major commercial center and one of the most fascinating tourist resorts in the world, which draws tourists to itself.
