Patong Carnival, Colour Fun Run, Laguna Triathlon & New Central
While an ED visa is the ultimate ticket to learn Thai or another language in Thailand, “all study and no play sure makes Jack a dull boy”. It is time to put away those books and pencils, and head out to explore what Phuket has in store for November.
Carnival anybody? Yes, that’s right! Patong Beach will host the annual Phuket Carnival from 1 – 5 November 2018, complete with parades, live entertainment and scrumptious food. As an added bonus, world class DJ Tiesto will also be spinning the decks at Illuzion on the 3rd! So, get your fiesta on and head out to this not-to-be-missed event. https://rove.me/to/phuket/patong-carnival
Fancy something sportier? You are in luck, because there are 3 events coming up. First is the Open Swim League on the 3rd of November. Following that is the Colour Fun Run which takes on the 10th – 11th of November, and you can register at http://phukethon.com/en/registration/. Both events will be held at Thanyapura in Thalang. Lastly you can join the LPT Charity Fun Run on the 17th and 18th, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Phuket Laguna Triathlon. It takes place at Laguna and some of the proceeds will go to the Children First Fund charity.
Prefer something more authentic from the Land of Smiles to float your boat, err… basket? The annual Loy Krathong festival is scheduled for the 23rd of November at Saphan Hin, where you can make a traditionally decorated basket or krathong, which will later be floated on the water under the full moon.
In the mood for helping to keep Phuket clean and plastic free? Regular beach clean-up events are organized every month by Trash Hero Phuket https://www.facebook.com/TrashHeroPhuket/ and Clean The Beach Boot Camp https://www.facebook.com/CleanTheBeachBootCamp/ so this is you opportunity to do something nice for the environment and create awareness.
Of course, no outing would be complete without a proper dose of shopping. Central Phuket, sister mall to Central Festival, recently opened its doors to the public as the first tourist destination mall, and boast an array of attractions like Floresta, Tribhum, Aquaria. In layman’s terms, this translates to a forest, adventure theme park and an aquarium. To embark on this this shopping adventure, you can visit http://centralphuket.com/
