Governor Phakaphong is carrying the Kan Tor royal ceramic urn containing the sacred water, which was drawn from the well at Wat Chalong last Saturday (Apr 6).

The water was then carried to Wat Prathong in Thalang for two days of ritual blessing ceremonies. (See story here.)

The water is to be handed over in Bangkok to join the collection of sacred water tributes gathered from 108 locations throughout the country, all to be used in the blessing ceremonies for the Royal Coronation of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun to be held May 4-6.

Governor Phakaphong and his police escort departed Phuket by motorcade at 12:30pm yesterday, Komart Pankeard, Chief of Phuket office of the Ministry of Culture, told The Phuket News.

“He stopped at Chumphon province to stay overnight, and left there at 8am today,” he said.

“He will arrive at the Ministry of Interior today,” Mr Komart said.

“After that, he (Gov Phakaphong) will take a break in Samut Songkhram province.” Mr Komart added.

How could the Governor not inform the "Voice" in advance about that trip?Highly valued Expat taxes were wasted too.That is not appropriate.Even worse that he takes a Songkran break after that to see some relatives maybe.I hope the concerned goody goody uses all his connections to discipline him.

"Nice,exactly the kind of comment you would expect from that kind of expat. Someone wrote about "Dirt bags" a few days ago," once again missing the point, but maybe "dirt bags" are the reason the canal is so filthy.

"So,that wasn't the water from the canal behind Kamala  beach"Nice,exactly the kind of comment you would expect from that kind of expat. Someone wrote about "Dirt bags" a few days ago.Hhhmmm!!!!

Wow, tough job for Governor, all the way by motorcade + police escort to Bangkok, including a overnight hotel stay? For him, the motorcade staff and police escort.
Must have been tiring. Of course some rest days are needed now.  Why not just flew 1hr.20 min to Bangkok in the morning and returned with a evening flight? All these use of  2 way resources and expenses. What a waist.

Only a foul mouthed Expat would write such a disrespectful comment.The water from that Kamala canal should be used to give him a thorough mouth cleaning.

So that wasn't the water from the canal behind Kamala beach?
