Tourism Minister in Phuket to bolster tourist confidence in security | Samui Times

Tourism Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul arrived in Phuket today to launch a campaign to boost tourist confidence in security, ahead of a Tourist Police mass event on Bangla Rd, Patong, on Sept 10th.

phuket-tourismMinister Kobkarn joined Tourist Police Commander Maj Gen Surachet Hakpan to launch the “We’re Safe, Thailand’s Safe” campaign at the Duangjit Resort & Spa in Patong this morning, attended by about 1,000 officials, police and police volunteers.

Gen Surachet will join scores of Tourist Police officers and volunteers at the police box on Bangla Rd at about 7pm before walking along Phuket’s premier party street to talk with tourists.

The police box was where one of two small bombs detonated on Aug 12, in concert with the mass attacks throughout Southern Thailand that killed four people and injured dozens more.
