PHUKET: This week provincial officials struck gold in creating confusion after they held a meeting to discuss their plans for the upcoming Phuket Gastronomy Fair and the Phuket Brand Phuket Best Fair.

 

In short, the Phuket Gastronomy Fair will be held as part of the Phuket Brand Phuket Best Fair 2019, which will be held at Saphan Hin from Dec 27 to Jan 6 – which is exactly where the annual Phuket Red Cross Fair will be held on exactly the same dates.

 

Only early last month the Phuket Red Cross Fair was announced as returning to Saphan Hin this year, after it was cancelled without any public announcement last year, causing much consternation among local residents. (See story here.)
