Thalang, Phuket –
Mr. Rawat Areerob, Chief Executive of the Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization, officially opened the Phuket – Phang Nga sister cities event yesterday, April 22nd.
The event was held on Sarasin Bridge, Mai Khao sub-district, Thalang, Phuket, and was presided over by Phuket Governor Mr. Narong Wun Siew.
Mr. Rawat stated during the opening that the Phuket – Phang Nga sister cities event happened because Phuket had been allocated a budget to strengthen the economy and stimulate the resident’s spending capacity which had been deteriorated by Covid-19 and certain regulations. Hopefully, this event would generate sufficient income for locals so that they would be able to revitalize Phuket into a world-class tourism city in the future.
The must-sees of this event were the octagonal clock tower — one of the renowned Phuket landmarks established in a Sino-Portuguese style, and also a cute colorful exhibit of Mini Air Balloons to take selfies. Participants can also enjoy a variety of food from over 40 vendors while listening to music from talented artists.
All of these will be opened for visitors at Sarasin Bridge for free, starting on April 22nd – April 24th from 05.00 p.m. Covid-19 precautions, such as mandatory mask-wearing, even outside, apply.
