The annual event, now in its 25th year, carries the concept ‘World Ride Together’ this year in a show of unity for the worldwide bikers the event attracts.

More than 5,000 vehicles and 50,000 participants, from Thailand and 30 other countries, are expected, bringing a projected revenue of at least B500 mil­lion into Phuket.

The event will take place at Patong’s Loma Park between April 12-14 and at Phuket Boat Lagoon between April 19- 20 and promises to have something for everyone. While the thousands-strong two-wheeled convoys might be a spec­tacle enough in themselves, there are a host of other events to wow attendees across the week too.

Guests can expect: an opening cer­emony led by the Mayor of Patong; motorcycle exhibitions; a custom bike contest; Miss Phuket Bike Week contest; a charity ride; a ride for peace; rock mu­sic festivals with Thai band Carabao, singer Pong Hinlekfai and Malaysian band Wings Rock; beach parties; a grand dinner; and souvenirs, clothing and bike accessories on sale.
