Thailand, also known as the land of smiles, is a big country located in Southeast Asia with a population of 66,000,000 people and its neighboring countries are Malaysia, Burma, Laos, and Cambodia.
Thailand is best known for its spicy food such as Tom Yum Koong & Somtam, its temples and beautiful beaches.
Some of the most visited places in Thailand are Bangkok (the capital of Thailand), Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Koh Samui, and Phuket.


ThailandOur city is called Phuket. Phuket is located in central Thailand and is an island.

The population of Phuket is 314,000 people. Phuket is famous for its wonderful beaches and its tourism.

Phuket celebrates lots of festivals such as Song Kran, the Vegetarian festival, Loy Kratong and many more. Song Kran is special because it has won a Guiness World Record for being the biggest water fight. Song Kran involves people on the streets throwing water at each other; people also stand on the back of pickup trucks and throw water on everyone. All of these festivals are lots of fun and are celebrated all over Thailand.

Phuket is special for its culture, food, fruits and its beaches. Phuket also has a wonderful mix of modern and traditional things mixed together. This is a photo of the biggest temple in Phuket called Wat Chalong.

ThailandThe name of our school is The British International School Phuket and it is located in Koh Kaew near Phuket Town.

There are approximately 950 students in our school who are aged between 18 months and 18 years old. There are over 100 teachers teaching in our school.

Our school has good facilities like a school shop, many football pitches and two swimming pools and the cafeteria has food from all around the world which is exquisite. During the year we have a sports day and a football tournament; we also go to different countries to do an all round sports trip called FOBISSEA. Our school is special because the people in the school represent many different nationalities and many different cultures.

The classes working on the GiggleIT project are from across the school:

A Joke from Phuket

A man took his dog to the vet. The vet then picked the dog up and had a check. All of a sudden the vet said, "I’m going to put your dog down." The man siad "WHAT?!!" The vet then said, "I’m sorry he’s too heavy."

Explanation: In Phuket there are loads of stray dogs and a lot of them have no place to go so sadly some get put down. The joke here is, the vet wants to put the dog down not to kill it, but because, the dog is too heavy!

Class Introduction

We are a small class of girls who are learning English. We speak Korean and Thai very well but are still working on our English. We have made some poems about the community service program we do at school. Sometimes we work with poor children, children who have no parents, or we help with the environment like gardening and beach clean-up. I hope you like them.
