Abstract This study aims to explore western settlers' impact on the demographic diversity of Phuket and to analyze socio-cultural changes and consequences of increase in cultural diversity caused by western settlers in an era of international tourism. A large number of western settlers residing on the island of Phuket produce significant social changes in Phuket society in the era of international tourism by generating a greater diversity in the demographic composition of Phuket. Western settlers appear in various guises, such as retirees, investors, business people, diplomats, short-term-staying young westerners, and Westerners who are married to Thai spouses. Their settlement forms a new generation of luk krueng farang, who are children of mixed ethnic Thai and farang parentage. The dominance of Thai-Chinese luk krueng born during the mining era changing into that of luk krueng farang, which group is rising in numbers in the international tourism period. Western settlers have become a key component of Phuket's demographics. Those already show a high level of cultural diversity, which is visibly reflected through many religious and cultural sites: Buddhist temples, Sikh and Hindu temples, churches, mosques and shrines. A high concentration of international restaurants, a diverse linguistic situation and the emergence of Thai Pidgin English are key social phenomena that have resulted from the settlement of westerners in Phuket in the era of international tourism.
