Last night was the official start to Phuket’s Patong Carnival which was opened by the Governor of Phuket Norraphat Plodthong.
The three day carnival held annually marks the start to Phuket’s high season which this year is estimated to see the arrival of 50,000 tourists descending upon Phuket’s main town.
There were a number of other high profile dignitaries in attendance at the opening of the carnival including Patong’s Mayor, officials from the Tourism Authority of Thailand as well as Royal Thai Naval Officers.
The dignitaries and hundreds of spectators were treated to a parade made up of costumed dancers and floats which the festival over recent years has become famed for.
