Phuket Scene Phuket is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. It consists of the island of Phuket, the country's largest island, and another 32 smaller islands off its coast. It lies off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket Island is connected by the Sarasin Bridge to Phang Nga province to the north. The next nearest province is Krabi, to the east across Phang Nga Bay. Phuket province has an area of 222 square miles, somewhat less than that of Singapore, and is the second-smallest province of Thailand. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and was frequently mentioned in foreign ships' logs of Portuguese, French, Dutch, and English traders, but was never colonised by a European power. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber and now from tourism.

Climate: The climate of Phuket is tropical, hot all year round, with a rainy season due to the southwest monsoon, which lasts from May to October, and a dry season from December to March. In April, before the monsoon, there is a certain increase in showers. In November, there can still be abundant rainfall, especially in the first part, either for any delay in the retreat of the monsoon, or because of a tropical cyclone (see below). However, there may be some showers also in the dry season, especially in December, when occasionally, some of them can be particularly intense.
