“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closure of these sections of road,” said Lt Teerawat.

Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong invited people to join the two-day event at a press conference last week on Wednesday (Dec 20), when he explained that the countdown will feature shows and activities such as live music, cultural shows, cultural carnival, food trucks and food stalls. (See story here.)

“The Amazing Thailand Countdown 2018 will be held in five main provinces in Thailand, which are Phuket, Kanchanaburi, Lampang, Rayong and Sakon Nakhon, on Dec 30-31. This activity is to promote tourism and encourage visitors to celebrate New Year in Thailand,” said Gov Norraphat.

The festival will run from 4pm to midnight at the Clock Tower on Thalang Rd in Phuket Town and the 72nd Anniversary Queen Sirikit Park on Thalang Rd in Phuket Town – also known as Dragon Park.

The event is expected to bring more than 45,000 tourists to the island and generate more than B200 million in revenue.
