History of Phuket

During the 17th century there was a massive competition among the European nations for trade with the island because of the tin available in the region. In 1682 King Narai appointed Brother René Charbonneau who was a medical missionary, the Governor of the island thus giving the French a monopoly. The French were later on expelled from the Island in 1688. The Burmese attempted to capture the island in 1785 but failed due to the heroics of Thao Then Kasattri and Thao Si Sunthon who led a resistance for the island. In 1933 the island was declared a province. In 2004 the island suffered from the Tsunami with the Patong Beach and the Kata Noi Beach being severely damaged with as many as 250 people reported dead. In 2005 most resorts were back in operation and the island slowly recovered from the tragic event.
