At the museum, HRH Princess Sirindhorn will be welcomed by Phuket Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok, Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwansupana and other notable officials, including Dr Kosol Tang-utai, who is Phuket City Deputy Mayor and the Museum President.

Her Royal Highness is to unveil the museum’s name plate and sign a brass plate to officiate the venue’s opening.

HRH Princess Sirindhorn will stop by Kopitiam by Wilai in Phuket Town at 3:35pm before heading to the Hotel Novotel Phuket Phokeetra to officiate the hotel’s re-opening at 4:10pm, and stay in the hotel overnight.

She is scheduled to arrive back in Phuket via helicopter in time to attend lunch with Phuket Governor Norraphat at his official residence in Phuket Town.

At 2pm, HRH Princess Sirindhorn will return to Bangkok via Phuket International Airport.
