Phuket hosted the “Phuket Bike Week 2022, New Normal Ride Together” event between 13 – 15 May to boost the tourism sectors and domestic economy, expecting to generate more than 200 million baht.
Natee Ratchakitprakarn, Chairman of the Advisory Board to the Deputy Prime Minister, presided over the opening ceremony in the Playyard Phuket, Thalang district, on Saturday, May 14th.
The event features more than 20,000 bikers and more than 2,000 bikes from all regions of Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Cambodia, and Vietnam, for all three days of the event.
Wittaya Singkala, Acting President of the Phuket Bike Week Association, said that the activity aimed to promote tourism with diversity and creativity as well as the culture of big bikes and motors. Participants can also enjoy the beauty of the sea and beaches of Phuket while enhancing quality tourism and elevating world-class tourism.
A significant part of the group of big bike riders are considered to be high spenders which help stimulate tourism in the post-Covid period. It is expected that they could generate more than 200 million baht to revive the economy of Phuket and nearby provinces.
Phuket Deputy Governor Pichet Panaphong said that the “Phuket Bike Week 2022” is organized under cooperation within Phuket’s tourism sectors. Not only will the event boost tourism in Phuket in long run, but the three-day event also strengthens friendships and relationships between tourists who love big motorbikes from all over the world.
