In the last several weeks of protest against the Thai Government, it has now come to this new strategy of a shutdown in Bangkok and it seems elsewhere in Thailand is following. The existing Government has already announced elections in the next coming months but it seems that the protestors are not letting people forget their plight.
Bangkok has been in turmoil and it has not helped tourism, the Thai baht, the economy, their daily lives but it looks like that's what the struggle has been about in many ways or at least many of these things. Not forgetting allegations of corruption withing the Government. Now, as with many other locations throughtout Thailand, Phuket is also part of the whole agenda. In support of their comrades in Bangkok, many people have taken to the streets to rally their descent on the country's politics and those running it especially Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra who refuses to step down.
In Phuket they have started a major rally in Phuket Town. Government buildings and offices were closed, with police and the military on standby. Many schools also closed and at least 3 were lead by student leaders that participated on stage in the rally protest, boosting the influx of younger people who will ultimately become the next generation of voters. It is not clear if the protestors will move to other parts of the island like Patong and Bangtao or even do a sit in at the Phuket International Airport.
Tourist have been warned to stay away and not provoke things in any way. Many embassies have also instructed their visitors to be cautious and even advised them to not wear the red or yellow colors as a precaution against any misunderstanding that may erupt from either side in any mistaken support.
Phuket police have siad the situation is clam. Even though the protest is loud, it is well organized and the police chief has mentioned that he knows the main persons and have spoken to them to ensure that they keep withing the legally allowed protest rules defined in Thailand's constitution. Public safety to locals and tourist on the island is priority to the police. On the protestors side, they have mentioned that everything they do depends on what happens in Bankok. So now, it's a wait and see game, even for the tourist.
It's 2014 and once again, PIMEX, the Phuket International Boat Show has arrived. This is the 11th year since it started. Once again it is held at the Royal Phuket Marina as the year before, on the 10th anniversary, they had signed an agreement to be the official host for the next 5 years. This years event is from the 9th till 12th January 2014.
Now in its eleventh year, PIMEX is an established and successful event in the marine and leisure calendar. PIMEX 2014 will include a large in-water display, together with 2,500 sqm of indoor, waterfront exhibition space. There will be a diversity of displays from as far afield as China, Australia, Italy and France.
Like its location, PIMEX is a relaxed event where participants celebrate the boating, leisure and luxury lifestyle in an ideal tropical destination. The show is more than boats on display but also an opportunity to see the latest luxury products, properties and engage in some Phuket hospitality. Odd.ly enough, Harley Davidson or Bangkok is making an appearance this year to line the marina with its range of bikes. Seem like a good chance to display them before the up coming 20th anniversary of Phuket Big Bike Week 2014 in April.
In addition, during the 4 days a lucky draw winner for each day gets to go up in a plane ride over the island by local media partner Phuket Gazette and Phuket Airpark. So it seems that the Phuket scene high season just got a lot more fun for everyone.
