Whoever said that Thailand’s most beautiful women come from Chiang Mai in the North, Ubon Ratchathani in the Northeast or Ratchaburi in Central Thailand – obviously have never attended Phuket’s beauty pageants.

And the crown of this year’s Tao Thepkrasattri Princess pageant went to Number 2, Ms Sirinpha Phabteja, who was gifted a handful of prizes and B10,000 cash; the first runner up was Number 12, Ms Kittima Yodsoi who took home prizes and B8,000 cash; the Second runner up was Number 4 Ms Rujira Nasawat, who took home prizes and B6,000 cash.

The people’s favourite vote went to Ms Number 7, Ms Jiraporn Pratip Na Thalang, who also received prizes and B6,000 cash.

The pageant, held on March 24, was presided over by Vice Governor Chamroen Thipayapongthada as well as Mayor of Sisunthon, Worawut Songyot, who explained in a speech to a captivated audience, that the pageant is not only about picking a beautiful girl to showcase Phuket beauty, but about honouring Phuket’s unique culture, dress, history and ancestors, for whose bravery Phuketians owe their lives to.
