著名景区英文介绍:普吉岛

普吉在泰国南部,是泰国最大的海岛。海水清澈湛蓝,全岛海滩众多,多达17处,集中在岛的西部。这里简直是外国人度假的天堂,游艇等水上活动较为丰富,潜水爱好者更不能错过在海底与鱼共舞。普吉岛周围有各种外形奇特的小岛、石洞等景观。

普吉岛原音来自于马来语中的Bukit,意思为“山”,位于泰国南部安达曼海域,距离泰国的攀牙府大陆只有一桥之隔,有着“安达曼海上珍珠”的美誉。这里发展旅游业超过30年,得天独厚的自然环境使普吉岛成为国际知名的度假岛屿。普吉岛一年只分为两个季节:雨季(5月-10月),降雨集中,受季风影响,海上风浪比旱季时大,但大多数时间仍然日光充足;旱季(11月-次年4月),干燥少雨,阳光灿烂,也是旅游的旺季。全年平均温度都在30℃以上,背心、短裤、比基尼是来普吉一年四季必备的行头。近些年随着普吉岛游客量的增长,她已经从过去的热带小岛逐渐转型成繁华、商业化的旅游胜地,在游客密集的几个海滩,酒店、商铺林立,海滩不免受到污染,周边岛屿成了游客们的新宠,所以很多游客也把普吉当成前往周边岛屿游览的中转站。普吉镇是个干净清新的小镇。不那么繁华,但看起来很温馨;不那么便利,但走得很陶醉;不那么大气,却有小城幽静的味道。

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 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. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoys a rich and colorful history. 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. The region now derives much of its income from tourism.



The relatively recent name "Phuket" (of which the digraph ph represents an aspirated p) is apparently derived from the word bukit in Malay which means "hill", as this is what the island appears like from a distance. An alternative suggestion is that the name originates from two Thai words, "phu" (mountain) of "ket" (jewel), and this is said to be recorded in a Thai chronicle.

Phuket was formerly known as Thalang, derived from the old Malay "telong" which means "cape". The northern district of the province, which was the location of the old capital, still uses this name. In Western sources and navigation charts, it was known as Jung Ceylon (a corruption of the Malay Tanjung Salang, i.e., "Cape Salang"),
