The merit-making began at 6am at Phuket Provincial Hall, with Governor Phakaphong, Phuket Vice Governors, soldiers from the Royal Thai Army, police officers as well as students and members of the public providing offerings to monks at the ceremony.

In addition to honouring King Bhumibol’s birthday and Father’s Day, the ceremonies this morning also paid tribute to Dec 5 as Thailand’s “National Day”, as proclaimed by the Cabinet earlier this year.
