Phuket Carnival hoped to help local businesses

By The Phuket News



The eight-day carnival, now in its 34th year, will begin this Sunday (Nov 1), Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup announced on Tuesday (Oct 27).


PHUKET: Officials are hoping that the Phuket Carnival, the festival held in Patong each year traditionally to mark the beginning of the tourism high season, will lure some 15,000 to 30,000 people to the island, and generate at least B120 million for the local economy.
