Phuket Lobster Festival now on



PHUKET: The Phuket Lobster Festival 2016 announced its arrival with a splash at a press conference held at the Tukabkhao Restaurant in Phuket Town on Tuesday.

The restaurant was decorated with a giant lobster attached to the door to commemorate the event. The festival officially begins August 1 and will last throughout the month.

More than 30 local eateries from all over Phuket are participating in the event.

Each restaurant will provide an especially designed signature menu to its customers, featuring delicacies such as Lobster Thermidor, Phuket Lobster Spaghetti, Phuket Lobster Sashimi and Lobster Onsen, just to name a few.

Festival representatives invited social media enthusiasts to share pictures via Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag #Phuketlobsterfestival2016.

At the end of the festival, the person whose picture receives the most likes on Instagram and the most likes and shares on Facebook, will be awarded the top prize of two free airline tickets from Phuket to Bangkok.

Additionally, other participants will also get a chance to win 50 ‘special’ awards during the festival. Contest results will be announced on September 10.
