Welcome to my Phuket homepage !!
In this homepage, I will be sharing the happiness and fun I had during my stay in Phuket. I have posted many tips and hotels informations especially to assist many Phuket bound tourists. Kindly drop me a message if you require my assistance. I will do my best to assist you.
Personally I have been to Phuket many times (just can't recall how many). My last trip is April 2005, 4 months after the disastrous tsunami that hit the Phuket shores.
However, I want to reserve some comments for that fateful Boxing Day Tsunami. Hence, I will like to remind everyone that on 26th DECEMBER 2004 , an undersea earthquake measuring between 9.1 to 9.3 occurred at 00:58:53 UTC, with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra. This earthquake resulted in an estimated of 229,866 lives lost worldwide, including 186,983 dead and 42,883 missing.
In Phuket, about 250 people, mostly tourists from all over the world were reported dead. As a result of the tsunami, as many as 5,200 lives were lost nationwide in Thailand. Many victims having their vacations on small islands near Phuket have literally no way of escaping as some of Thailand's smaller vacation islands were swallowed by the water.
Herewith, I pay my respects to those people who perished together with the tsunami. And salutes to those alive for rebuilding Phuket and make this island as well as the nearby islands a haven for us tourists.
In conclusion, I just believed that we are blessed in many ways in our lives and that we do not result being the tsunami victims.
