PHUKET TOWN: The Phuket Tourist Association (PTA) this morning opened its new offices on the bypass road, opposite the Nissan showroom. It previously had offices in the Tourism Authority of Thailand building on Phuket Rd. At the ceremony, Sombat Atiset, managing director of the Kata Thani Hotel and Beach Resort, was officially installed as the new president of the PTA. The organization spent 3 million baht refurbishing the three-story building, which now houses offices, a conference room, an all-purpose room, and a room for the president. The PTA was founded in 1978 by Wichit Na-Ranong, managing director of the Pearl Hotel and the Pearl Village. Other past presidents have included Charn Wongsatayanont and Pamuke Achariyachai. The new phone number for the PTA is 222177-8.
