Observing from the safe vantage point of the Police Box at the beach end of Bangla Rd this afternoon (April 12) was Patong Mayor Challermsak Kebsup.

Police have cautioned those taking part in the revelry to keep safety in mind and have launched a stern campaign against drink driving.

From all of us here at Class Act Media, including The Phuket News, Khao Phuket, Novosti Phuketa, Phuket news TV and Live 89.5 Radio, have a happy, safe Songkran.
