You can also find the name of junk Ceylon on the ancient maps of the region around Thailand’s South West coast. This is a way station situated on the route between India and China where seafarers stopped to shelter. This Island is today known as Phuket.

During the Nineteenth Century Chinese immigrants arrived in such numbers to work for the tin mines that the major population inside the interiors of the island is chinese, while the coastal settlements remained populated essentially by Muslim fishermen.

You can find about the culture of people, historical artifacts and records along with the major events  in the Thailand national museum.

  1. Firstly phuket is an island, so anywhere you remain on the island will be phuket. have you mean patong beach on phuket? i am not a fan of the place. way too many disgusting old men and thai girls i’m unsure what the other areas on the island are just like, but i’m pretty sure you will find a nice resort on a quiet beach from the hustle and bustle of patong beach. since you are going on your honeymoon you might want to consider phi phi island it’s very beautiful and secluded and quite near to phuket.
