Patong’s beach road closed for an hour for new year celebrations

The Patong beach road will officially close for an hour as Patong revelers celebrate New Year 2019 at the island’s most famous beach. Thaweewong Road (Beach Road) will close from 11.30pm-12.30am.

The closure is meant to be a safety measure to stop the volume of tourists and new year revelers from being run over. But last new year the traffic was in gridlock from 11pm until nearly 1.30pm with people who parked near the beach stuck in Patong until the hoards of people started to dissipate.

Most of the beach road will be closed to traffic from Prachanukroh Road in the south near the Absolute Sea Pearl Beach Hotel to Hatpatong Road near Loma Park.

The Patong Municipality has organised two nights of celebration for its Patong Beach “Countdown 2019”.
