Phuket, Thailand
Phuket is a city on the Southeast of Phuket Island in Thailand, the island itself being located in the Andaman Sea near the Kra Isthmus in southern Thailand. On the West of the island of Phuket are many beautiful sandy beaches, which have been developed into tourist centers including Karon, Kata and Patong.

Phuket was damaged by the 2004 Tsunami, but all the damaged buildings and attractions have since been restored.
