Phuketwan is "Sweet Phuket Every Day", with wan being Thai for day, and waan meaning sweet, or so we have been told.
This is the first site on the island dedicated especially to tourism, property, restaurants and nightlife, and jobs. Our coverage is second to none.
Each weekday, some or all of those important aspects of island life are updated at Phuketwan.
Most island residents and visitors or would-be visitors will find the site informative and entertaining.
What's more, our news team tells it like it is. We are not here to constantly praise the island's virtues or to cover the kind of crimes that happen everywhere around the world.
We just aim to provide an accurate account in words and photographs of Phuket and its people, including both smiles and warts.
We tell it like it is. Our food reviews are the genuine reviews because we pay our way. If we don't, we will tell you so.
Readers can also add their own comments on every story. We are keen to hear what you have to say.
Phuketwan is also the proud major sponsor of the Phuket Business of the Year Award, the Phuket Restaurant of the Year Award, and the Phuket Innovation of the Year Award.
Each year, we also nominate the Phuket Person of the Year Award.
Our print arm is Big Island Media, a custom publishing specialist, with Laguna Phuket among its magazine production clients. Big Island Media has the creation of The Phuket Post, the island's fortnightly news magazine, among its many credits.
If you need a magazine, try Big Island Media.
For reliable independent information about the island, Phuketwan is your daily dose of sweet Phuket, covering tourism, property, jobs, happenings, and restaurant reviews.
