Starting December 30th, visitors to Patong may find it easier to find spaces to park as the vehicles for rent operators have agreed to give up spaces to the members of the public and agreed with the parking ratio of 26 – 74%. The conclusion was reached yesterday afternoon when the Phuket Governor Tri Akkaradecha held another meeting with related officials and local businesses.
The meeting also adopted new parking rules as all parking will be on the shops’ side of the beach road, not on the beach side, so the parked cars do not block the sea view for passers by. Phuket Governor and the business operators wish that this can be a new year present for visitors to Patong. Patong Municipality will put signs up clearly indicating the zones for rental vehicle and tourists.
