Phuket’s Prab says Sydictive New Year Party can ‘move it, move it’ to Patong
PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette was told today that Patong Municipality sent Preechavude “Prab” Keesin, son of Patong Mayor Pian Keesin and head of the largest taxi driver association in Patong, to Bangkok to discuss with party organizers Sydictive Element about moving the controversial Sydictive party from Surin Beach to Patong Beach at Loma Park.
However, Thai Beverage has for years used Loma Park as base for their free New Year’s Eve party.
“I talked to Sydictive Element CEO Jirat Petnunthawong on December 21. I am willing to allow the use of the area of Loma Park for the Sydictive party, but the timing does conflict with the annual New Year’s Eve party at Loma Park held by Thai Beverage. Now Sydictive Element has to deal with Thai Beverage itself,” Mr Prab said.
“Sydictive party is big and it seems to be an international party, while Thai Beverage party is an annual party which receives great response from local people and tourists every year, so I do not have anything against them if the two parties are combined,” he explained.
“A Sydictive Element representative was expected to discuss aspects of both parties being held in Patong with Thai Beverage today. There should be a public announcement tomorrow,” he added.
