It is quite strange that some spellings in English from Thai are not quite correct, for example, the "H" in many words is always silent, and it is not needed.
So, you should pronounce: POO-KET.

I agree, its pronounced
poo-ket. I've been there 3 times and that's definitely how the Thais say it too!

See ya
