Well, the article starts with mentioning to generate more than thb 200 million in revenue. Yes?
It is all just about making money.
A 2 day event bringing for that a 45 thousand tourist to Phuket?
Are this next 'not believe' TAT figures?

The rest of the things like:..Amazing Thailand Countdown held under modern retro theme.  
Hahaha, nice way to put a money making thing without ticke...

Well, thai fire works wake us day and night. Last night here at 02:30 am!
Reason? Get rid of the bad ghosts.
The sleeping families, waking up babies, children and reacting dogs around here didn't notice any ghosts.

Is Smart Phuket not dealing with ghost in a proper manner?
When the government forbid ghosts to be here between sunset and sunrise?.
We all need a normal sleep.
