Phuket is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. It consists of the island of Phuket, the country's largest island, and another 32 smaller islands off its coast. It lies off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket Island is connected by the Sarasin Bridge to Phang Nga Province to the north. The next nearest province is Krabi, to the east across Phang Nga Bay

Phuket Province has an area of 576 square kilometres (222 sq mi), somewhat less than that of Singapore, and is the second-smallest province of Thailand. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and was frequently mentioned in foreign ship logs of Portuguese, French, Dutch, and English traders. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber and now from tourism.

The Portuguese explorer Fernão Mendes Pinto arrived in Siam in 1545. His accounts of the country go beyond Ayutthaya and include a reasonably detailed account of ports in the south of the Kingdom as well. Pinto was one of the first European explorers to detail Phuket in his travel accounts. He referred to the island as ‘Junk Ceylon’, a name the Portuguese used for Phuket Island in their maps. Junk Ceylon is mentioned seven times in Mendes Pinto's accounts. Pinto said that Junk Ceylon was a destination port where trading vessels made regular stops for supplies and provisions. However, during the mid-16th century, the island was in decline due to pirates and often rough and unpredictable seas, which deterred merchant vessels from visiting Junk Ceylon. Pinto mentioned several other notable port cities in his accounts, including Patani and Ligor, which is modern day Nakhon Si Thamarat.

In the 17th century, the Dutch, English and, after the 1680s, the French, competed for the opportunity to trade with the island of Phuket (then known as "Jung Ceylon"), which was a rich source of tin. In September 1680, a ship of the French East India Company visited Phuket and left with a full cargo of tin.

A year or two later, the Siamese King Narai, seeking to reduce Dutch and English influence, named as governor of Phuket a French medical missionary, Brother René Charbonneau, a member of the Siam mission of the Société des Missions Étrangères. Charbonneau remained as governor until 1685.

In 1685, King Narai confirmed the French tin monopoly in Phuket to their ambassador, the Chevalier de Chaumont.179 Chaumont's former maître d'hôtel, Sieur de Billy, was named governor of the island.[3]:50 However, the French were expelled from Siam after the 1688 Siamese revolution. On 10 April 1689, Desfarges led an expedition to re-capture Phuket to restore French control in Siam. His occupation of the island led to nothing, and Desfarges returned to Puducherry in January 1690.

The Burmese attacked Phuket in 1785, Francis Light a British East India Company captain passing by the island, notified the local administration that he had observed Burmese forces preparing to attack. Than Phu Ying Chan, the wife of the recently deceased governor, and her sister Mook (คุณมุก) assembled what local forces they could. After a month-long siege of the capital city, the Burmese were forced to retreat on 13 March 1785. The women became local heroines, receiving the royal titles Thao Thep Kasattri and Thao Si Sunthon from a grateful King Rama I. During the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), Phuket became the administrative centre of the tin-producing southern provinces. In 1933 Monthon Phuket (มณฑลภูเก็ต) was dissolved and Phuket became a province.

Beautiful scenery by Digital Design! The high resolution textures, very well modelled buildings (with interior), and great land class on the approaches on both runways make it, in my opinion, one of the best sceneries available at the moment. The only thing that disappointed me a little bit, are the 'wet' apron textures. They're all right, but not as breathtaking as on DD's other sceneries.

What a terrific piece of scenery design. It's not cheap but worth every Euro. There's detail everywhere and frame rates are superb. Don't stay airside either. Take the Pajero and drive around the outside where the car parks and terminal entrances are. The detail is amazing right down to flower beds. Stay airside and you'll miss all of this. Definitely a 5* must have airport. Well done Digital Design.

Another fantastic scenery from Digital Design. Blends seamlessly with surrounding Orbx products and the performance is excellent. Textures are crisp and look incredibly real. A must have!
SIERRASIM SIMULATION - SEGU JOSE JOAQUIN DE OLMEDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D
Murray
I'm using this in P3D V4.5 HF3. Whilst the airport itself is ok, the surrounding photoreal is very poor, especially the roads. It is very low resolution and detracts from the scenery overall. Airport building textures are also low quality. The blending with Orbx OpenLC South America is not great either in my opinion. This scenery is a step down from Sierrasim's other excellent sceneries. For this price point I expected an increase in quality but was disappointed. I hope they provide future updates addressing these points.

Really nice airport with great details. I only miss some animated vehicles and hope they will come in an update. Anything else is fine and it blends well with Orbx.

Hands down for this masterpiece of work! It is well detailed and beautiful. A perfect rendition for your collection of airports. If you fly to France or in France this is the airport for you. Frames on this airport are fantastic and the developer has done a great job without sparing any detail.
