The History of Phuket and the Surrounding Region

By Colin Mackay

A unique history in English of Phuket and its region from pre-history to the present day.

The author writes in his preface:

When I embarked on writing this book on Phuket's history one skeptical local quipped, "That'll be a short book." This attitude is fairly common among Phuket's visitors and residents, most of whom are blissfully unaware of the long, ancient and colourful history of Phuket Island and surrounding region.

At times this history may seem as though it is told from the poop deck of a foreign ship rather than from the vantage point of a local. This is mainly because comparatively few old Thai historical records were kept and even fewer have survived. Therefore it was the European, Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern visitors over the centuries who have left the most, and in many periods the only, historical records about Phuket and the central peninsula region.

About the author:

Colin Mackay is a Scotsman who grew up on the Tanzania coast on the opposite side of the Indian Ocean from Phuket. After gaining a Master's degree in History at Edinburgh University he moved to Asia where he has worked as a journalist, fund-manager, historic ship salvager and property developer. He first visited Phuket in 1985 and moved there permanently in 1998 where he still lives with his Thai wife Ana and two daughters Skye and Aila.
