PHUKET: It’s early yet, but the Tourism Authority of Thailand has made tentative plans to mark the new millennium with a “Goodbye 1999 -Welcome 2000” party at the sunset-watchers’ favorite location, Laem Phromthep. Anuparp Thirarath, Director of TAT’s southern office, said he is currently waiting for Bangkok to approve his proposal and the 200,000-baht budget it will need. The party, he said, would start at 5:30 pm on December 31. People would gather to watch the sun set on the old year, accompanied by live music, complimentary tea or coffee and possibly a buffet. He added that the TAT would be happy to consider something more elaborate, possibly involving sponsorship from the private sector.
