PHUKET: Motorists are being urged to avoid certain roads in the heart of Phuket Town today (Jan 28) as a major street procession is being held to honour Guan Yin, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, as a part of Chinese New Year celebrations.

 

The procession will start at the Put Cho Shirne on Phuthorn Rd at 3pm and conclude at the 72nd Anniversary Queen Sirikit Park on Thalang Rd, explained Phuket City Municipality official Wathakarn Intharat.

 

Roads to be closed to traffic while the procession proceeds include Soi Phuthorn, the northbound lane of Bangkok Rd, Suriyadej Circle, and Yaowarat Rd from the roundabout northward to Thalang Rd, Mr Wathakarn said.

I’d give Chinese people a wide berth, not be out in the street with them celebrating.
