“Only some roads will be closed for the Patong Carnival Parade, which will start from Phra Metta Rd (formerly referred to as “Phang Muang Sai Kor Rd, see story here) and turn right onto Prachanukhro Rd and then turn right again onto Thaweewong Rd (the beach road),” Col Tassanai explained.

“The parade will continue until it reaches the football field opposite Loma Park,” he said.

“Please avoid these roads. We will have officers on duty to manage the traffic for everyone,” Col Tassanai concluded.
