At 6pm, the parade will start on Surin Rd, then turn west onto Narisorn Rd, then south onto Montri Rd, past Surin Circle (also known as the Clocktower Circle), continue south onto Phuket Rd on to Saphan Hin, where Phuket City Municipality’s main Loy Krathong festivities will be held.

“The southbound lane along the parade route will be closed while it makes its way to Saphan Hin,” Phuket City Traffic Police Chief Lt Col Pongpop Prasoppichai told The Phuket News today.

“Please avoid the areas affected by the parade routes, and try to use alternative routes where possible,” said Col Pongpop.
