This year it is estimated that over 10,000 riders from 300 Thai Big Bike Clubs and 500 from around the Asean region and beyond will take part in the 21st Anniversary Phuket Bike Week 2015.
And with 50,000 visitors from 30 countries expected to visit Patong and Saphan Hin between April 11 – 19, this is why it is now seen by many big bikers enthusiasts as Asia’s biggest big bike event.
Speaking at a press conference on March 30, event organiser Wittaya Singkalah told The Phuket News, “10,000 motorbikes from countries including Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia will join the parade, and press from a number of countries will be here to promote Big Bike Week 2015.
“The event will be broadcast to a number of countries via TV, radio and global internet, and will published in newspapers and motorbike-magazines worldwide.
“Normally tourists will spend at least B20,000 for food and accomodation when they visit Phuket, so we hope that this event will bring Phuket at least B100M in revenue to Phuket.”
However, it’s not only the big bikes that draw the crowds. Live concerts from artists inluding the legendary Carabao, the annual Miss Bike Week Pageant, food and ‘pretties’ galore, tattoo contests and a range of other activities and entertainment are what makes the event it has become today.
Phuket Bike Week 2015 will once again brought to you by the Phuket Provincial Administration Office, Patong and Phuket Town Municiplaites, Tourism Authority of Thailand, Ride Thailand magazine and many Phuket motorcycle clubs.
Class Act Media is a proud sponsor of this event.
