ABOUT THE DESIGN OF STARBUCKS PHUKET ICON MUG
Starbucks Thailand released Starbucks Phuket Icon Mug featuring three Long Tailed Boats or what is locally known as “Ruea Hang Yao.”
Long tailed boat uses a common automotive engine because it is easier to maintain and is readily available in most localities.
The boat is designed to carry passengers and well as cargoes and has become an icon of Phuket. Some variations of the long tail boat is the glass bottom one which are used in water excursions in Phuket.
The other side of the Starbucks Phuket Icon Mug features the beaches of Phuket. Phuket boosts more than 30 white sand beaches and coves which allure many tourists all year round. The Starbucks Phuket Icon Mug is part of the 2008 Starbucks Thailand Collection. Unlike other Starbucks mugs which are made in China, the Starbucks Phuket Icon Mug and all other Starbucks Thailand mugs are made in Thailand. Hence, if you get one not made in Thailand, chances are its a fake one.
Phuket is one of the southern provinces and the biggest island in Thailand. Its neighboring provinces are Phang Nga and Krabi, but as Phuket is an island, it has no land boundaries.
Phuket is approximately the size of Singapore
The island is connected to mainland Thailand by two bridges. Phuket is situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoys a rich and colorful history. The island is 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.
Phuket now derives much of its income from tourism.
