A meeting led by Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong was held yesterday (Dec 13) at the Phuket Provincial Office to announce preparations for the annual Thao Thepkassatri and Thao Srisoonthon Festival.

The aim of the festival is to honour the history of Thao Thepkrasattri and Thao Srisoonthorn so the younger generations can be thankful and pay respect to them and to those who sacrificed their lives for the land on which we live today.

The annual event will feature many activities including a historical tour of Thalang, historical sporting competitions, a ceremony honouring Phuket’s famed heroines Thao Thepkrasattri and Thao Srisoonthorn, who led the defense of Phuket, and much more.

Among the events will be the traditional re-enactment of key events leading up the decisive battle which was fought and won near Thalang Town.

Gov Norraphat said, “We want support from tour groups in bringing tourists join this historical festival as this is another way to support Phuket’s cultural tourism. We invite people to join the Thao Thepkrassatri and Thao Srisoonthorn Festival 2018 being held from March 3-17,” Gov Norraphat added.
