Google Maps launched for Phuket businesses

PHUKET: The Gazette Guide, Phuket’s local business directory (yellow pages), has today announced the availability of Google Maps to its roughly 4,000 listed businesses. Users of the online version of the directory can now pinpoint precisely where a business is located – a major benefit in a community where postal addresses are often more confounding than enlightening.

An example of the convenience of a Google map can be seen here. With the ability to zoom in and out, and to then print a reliable map to a suddenly intelligible target address, tourists and local residents are now able to navigate with ease to restaurants, dive shops, golf courses, hardware stores or any other type of business they may wish to reach.

The first annual hard-copy Gazette Guide was released in 1996. The 2009 edition, due out mid-January, will set a record with details of roughly 4,000 Phuket businesses catering to the international community. All listings are in English.

Businesses wishing to list (or to update a current listing) in the Guide, are able to do so here. Basic listings are free of charge, and the deadline for the 2009 Guide is November 12. Listings entered after that date will appear in the Gazette Guide Online only.
