Bangornrat Shinaprayoon, the Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Phuket’s Office said that the office had cooperated with many sectors to prepare activities promoting Phuket tourism in the coming high season.
In November, there would be the Loy Kratong Festival held in many parts of the island including Sapan Hin Park and Chalong Pier. In December, there would be 70.3 Iron Man Triathlon, the 24th Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, and Patong Carnival to mark the opening of high season.
All of the activities would be held partly to help promote Phuket tourism. 80-90% of rooms were already reserved in hotels in Phuket during December 2010 to February 2011. It was estimated that there would be even more tourists coming to Phuket.
