Over the last week the Phuket Bike Week 2013 has been ongoing and so has the Miss Phuket Bike Week Contest 2013. It's just part of the annual festival and who doesn't know that bikes & babes are just the norm when it comes to events like this. This year it's been another friendly rivalry for all contestants who have also been enjoying themselves around the bikes, poolside, the beach and the Loma park grounds where the event is held every year.
The finals was held after the "Ride For Peace" from Patong to Chalong to Promtep Cape and back to the event area where there was a band performance first then the finals itself. The contestants looked a little nervous but composed. In addition they all looked fabulous on stage. The winner, by popular vote, took away the title and 30,000 Baht in prize money. Not too ba for a week's work indeed.
Not forgetting, when one event ends in Phuket, another begins. The Phuket Pride Week 2013 kicks off on Monday 22nd April with an opening night street party on Soi Paradise at 10pm. Don’t miss the fun, spectacular grand parade on Saturday 27th April, with its colourful floats and flashy costumes. The Phuket Pride Week 2013 runs until 28 April.
Phuket big bike week 2013 kicked off today. It started in the afternoon where all the stores got ready, stage up and going and food and drink stalls perked up for revelers and enthusiast alike. All day through out Patong people could hear these loud roars of the engines as they made their way into the town.
By evening most had gathered to the Loma park area where the stage was set up and a special dinner hosted for VIP guest and revelers. A live rock concert was held after for the guest. Prior to that, several speeches and presentations were done with tokens of appreciation for certain deserving people that have been assisting through the 19 years that the event has been going on. There was a lot of people looking at all the crazy bikes whereby a lot of custom job ones truly did stand out.
Big bike week will really go BIG next year as they celebrate 20 years in Phuket. Who know what they will come up to but sure the likes of the bikers, sponsors, advertisers and all the people that go to Phuket every year will be having a roaring good time. See what you're missing.
2013 Songkran Festival in Phuket kicks off on 13th April but last night it already got started as water canons, super soakers and barrels of water popped up everywhere. A playful party atmosphere quickly developed and many mini water battles broke out but to the delight of people who all seemed to go back to their childhood days of playing with water.
With all the joy of the festival going on, there is still the element of danger as every year Songkran is plagued with many deaths throughout Thailand. Songkran celebrations is when the rice harvest takes place and farmers wait for the rains to begin in order to plant their rice. This would be the driest point of each year so it seems sort of illogical to waste water by pouring it over elders’ hands but gradually over the years Songkran has developed to the point of water throwing using buckets and water guns.
This year, with the so called 11 rules in place, which is not without criticism, many welcome it although Phuket police urge Songkran celebrants to take it easy. They want people, locals and tourist alike, to enjoy themselves but be aware of the safety for their own sakes. A simple splash of water could become fatal at anytime. So far Patong area is the most crowded but other areas like Phuket town and Karon are crowded as well. The Phuket nightlife is seeing lesser patronage due to everyone being on the streets but still they are fairly packed up with people in need of alcohol.
It's been a hell of a party for 2013 and next year you should be here too.
Phuket big bike week will be on the 14th April just a day after Songkran kicks off so it's going to be a continuous party.
