Well, the free weekend has 3 'spending evenings' ( for the many job having government workers), so they can visit different markets on different evenings and spend the in their pocket burning money. It certainly helps their less off Thai brothers and sisters. Amd don't forget the Governor and Mayors, they need status keeping Openings/Merit doing as much as possible.

Are Phuket's municipalities now fighting among each other to battle over the tiny numbers of tourists here? It's bad enough that these ideas to boost tourism are being wasted during rainy season when there is traditionally very few tourists here anyway. Are they trying to entice them away from one ongoing festival to another. Why not wait until no other festivals are open at the same time.
