History And Culture Of Phuket

We are not makers of history, we are made by history. Let's explore it!

vPhuket has a long history of playing host to outsiders. Phuket Town was established in the first century B.C. by settlers from India. Ptolemy, a Greek geographer in the third century A.D., alluded to it as 'Jang Si Lang' – which later progressed toward becoming 'Garbage Ceylon' and this is the name you will see on old maps of Thailand, or Siam. 

Commander Light had a crucial influence in the most popular part in Phuket's history: the directing of the attacking Burmese armed force in 1785. Kunying Chan and her sister Mook gathered what powers they could and, as per legend, camouflaged nearby ladies as male warriors, hence influencing Phuket's military labor to appear to be invulnerable. The Burmese in the long run lost heart and left following multi month's attack and accordingly King Rama 1 granted Kunying Chan with the illustrious title of 'Thao Thep Kasattri'. 'Champion's Monument', as it is known, plays host to numerous local people who wish to offer their regards to their distinguished precursors.

As for the culture, Phuket is Buddhist in religion, Hindu in culture, Sanskrit in its traditional writing, Brahminic in its ceremonies, and - given that Thai clans relocated from southern China 1000 years back - Chinese in birthplace. It is likewise obvious that these are just misleading statements, however they do point to the intricate components that have characterized present day Thailand. So far as religion goes, around 95 percent of the populace is at any rate ostensibly Buddhist. There is additionally a sizeable Muslim minority, generally inhabitant in the southern territories. Prominent Buddhism, also, has absorbed components of both Brahminism and animistic convictions that originate before both of the previous religions. 

Wat Chalong (the biggest sanctuary on the island) is an incredible place to observe the uniqueness and excellence of this eastern religion. Another interesting aspect about the place is that the ladies are effectively engaged with business undertakings and human expressions. 

Thai is the nation's legitimate dialect, with Lao, Chinese, Malay, and Mon-Khmer likewise spoken. Known as the place that is known for 1000 grins, the Thai individuals are probably the friendliest on the planet.

Trip Was Really Awesome & Wonderful With Flamingo!

Hello. I'm very delighted to share my experience with you all regarding honeymoon trip which was arranged by Flamingo Transworld.
Right from the beginning of the tour from planning to landing back to home, the journey to Thailand was really awesome and wonderful with flamingo
Every staff member especially Rishikesh bhai, Hiralben and Amit bhai  incorporated themselves as if it was their own trip. I was little worried about my trip initially as it was my first international trip, but Constant assistance which was provided by Amit bhai 24×7 throughout the trip made my journey very lucid. 
I literally didn't face any single damn trouble during the trip and all credits goes to flamingo. I look forward to arrange so many trips with these guys and would heavily recommend flamingo to every passenger who seek their domestic and international trips.

A well organized and planned Thailand trip

I am very delighted to share my experience with flamingo transworld. It was a great pleasure and satisfying experience for us to travel to Thailand in association with Flamingo.


Initially I was little worried about my trip as it was my first international trip, but assistance and all the necessary information provided by Flamingo made my journey very lucid. We have booked a 7N/8D tour which includes 3N in Phuket, 2N in Krabi and 2N in Bangkok. 


I literally didn't face any trouble during my trip. We have not faced any problem of pick up and drop and in between sightseeing during our entire trip. From booking to end of the tour, they were very helpful and supportive. All the transfers, airport pick up and drop were always on time.  Excellent communication of staff especially Amitbhai and Helly made our tour much easy. They have provided a complete detailed itinerary with details of contact person, information about the city where we are travelling, list of nearby Indian restaurant and list of other details such as shopping place, additional sightseen places etc. were really helpful and appreciable.

Overall it was a very well organized and satisfying trip.
