Geography About 70 percent of Phuket is
mountainous; a western range runs from north to south from which smaller
branches derive. The highest peak is Mai Tha Sip Song, or Twelve Canes, at
529 meters, which lies within the boundaries of Tambon Patong, Kathu
District. The remaining 30 percent of the island, mainly in the center and
south, is formed by low plains. Streams include the Khlong Bang Yai, Tha
Jin, Khlong Tha Rua, and Khlong Bang Rong, none of which is large.
Economy Since the early 1980's the tourist business
has been Phuket's chief source of income. Hotels, restaurants, tour
companies, and souvenir shops are much in evidence on the west coast.
However, while once all-importance tin mining has ceased, tourism is by no
means the island's only activity. Agriculture remains important to a large
number of people, and covers by far the most part of the island. Principal
crops are rubber, coconuts, cashews, and pineapples. Prawn farming has
largely taken over the east and south coasts. Pearl farming is also
important. Phuket's fishing port is at all time filled, and processing of
marine products, mainly fish, makes a significant contribution to the
economy. With so many healthy industries supplying income, construction has
become a major factor in employment. This range from massive public works
projects, large office buildings and hotels, and housing estates with
hundreds of units, down to single family homes, apartments and additions.
