“Phukietians will become one for him,” Gov Chockchai said.

“I want to invite everyone to join the event, please dress in black attire and bring with you white candles. Don’t forget a raincoat just in case.

“We will set out car parking areas for residents in at least three locations and we will have police to assist with directing traffic,” he added.

Gov Chockchai also said that transportation has and is being provided for those who want to go the Bangkok to pay respect to the late King at the Grand Palace. The first group left on Sunday (Nov 6), and the next groups will be leaving on November 24, December 13 and January 1 at 6pm.

Ed Sanders, indeed, as you describe Surin Beach, it seems it is a Phuket environment disaster!
Guess by now the Phuket Governor knows that too and want people as far away as possible from Surin Beach, so he chose Phromthep Cape.
However to direct people from all over Phuket to the most southern point of the island is not very smart.
What a traffic mess it will become this Saturday.
A location more central on the island would have been better traffic/parking wise.
Why not singing in a stadium ( more togetherness feeling) instead of in the wind, possible in the rain and spread over the Phromthep Cape?

This was a good choice Kurt, because Surin Beach is in terrible condition... the worst ever, as it still looks like a war zone since nothing has been done since the demolition.  Also, if the tide is at the wrong phase the air and ocean can stink of poorly treated sewage and wastewater which is still discharged by all the hotels and restaurants.  The local officials responsible for this self-made disaster should be run out of town.  Surin has a long way to go before it is fit for a King, especially the loved and revered HM King Bhumibol.

The choice of Phromthep Cape location is excellent.
Extra traffic fun at Chalong Circle this Saturday.

Why not chosen Surin Beach Park. 
That is the location to honor His Majesty the King, right?
