The news was announced by Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew at a press conference held on Bangla Rd late yesterday afternoon (Aug 11).

Present for the announcement were Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup and Patong Entertainment Business Association (PEBA) President Weerawit Kreuasombat.

The event is being held under Patong Municipality’s banner campaign ‘Patong City Never Give Up’ in the hope of stimulating Patong’s suffering economy, still crippled by the ban on international tourists.

Mr Weerawit explained that the event will be held for three days, from Aug 13-15, on Bangla Rd.

At the event, there will be food and drinks stalls set up by Bangla business owners.

“This event is to attract people to spend money in Patong and to help the workers and business operators on Bangla Rd,” Mr Weerawit explained.

Mayor Chalermluck also noted, “There have been no new cases of infection [of COVID-19] in Phuket for a long time, but we continue to follow disease control measures strictly, especially at events and places where people gather.

 

“At this event, there will be scanning points at both entrances to Bangla Rd. Hand gel will be available in areas of the event, and event attendees must wear face masks,” she said

K,what do you mean by saying" Let's hope"? Are you thinking about to join the party ? That would ruin it. And in what world do you live that you think loads of hookers are needed for a good biker party ? Probably you have never attended one.Anyway don't worry,there are still many "entertaining ladies" available on Bangla Road.

Hey bikers from all around Thailand, theres a big party in two days!  This should be plenty of time for you to plan and ride here!  
Two days advance notice should be more than enough time.

Party at Bangla Road? Wow! Let's hope there are in time enough entertaining ladies available that Bike Night.
