Phuket’s history dates back to 1025 AD when it was merely used as a stopover by the ships sailing between India and China. In the 16th century, the central and northern regions were ruled by the Thais and the rest of the island was turned over for tin trade. Later, there was a trading post established by the Dutch on the island. During the latter half of the 18th century, the island was briefly overtaken by the Burmese. King Taksin of Thailand ultimately got them out and regained control. Soon after that, the Burmese made numerous efforts to occupy the land’s southern region. The Thais withstood their ground. In the 19th century, when the tin trade was at its peak, the Chinese started migrating to the island. Soon, in 1932 Phuket was stated as a separate province of Thailand. The region soon gained importance as a tourist destination; Phuket was one of the first provinces to embrace this industry and soon, grew to the top of the list for its natural beauty and hospitality.
