Oh, how the twinkling lights and festive cheers have brought Phuket Old Town to life this magical Christmas season! If you were to take a leisurely stroll down to the iconic Charted Bank intersection, you might find yourself face-to-face with an enormous Santa Claus figure, whimsically perching atop the vibrant “yellow building”—the historic old Phuket police station. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill holiday decoration; this Santa, with his jolly grin and twinkling eyes, seems ready to leap right into the holiday action, his left arm securely wrapped around the clock tower, as if to say, “Time’s ticking, let’s celebrate!”

But wait, there’s more! With his right arm playfully dangling down, this effervescent effigy beckons tourists and locals alike, inviting them into a world of wonder. Snap a picture with him and you’ve captured not just a moment, but a slice of the jubilant soul of Phuket during the holidays.

Not to be outdone, the famed Surin Roundabout—also known as the Clock Tower Roundabout—throws its hat into the ring of holiday merriment. Imagine this: an enchanting garden of oversized gift boxes, gargantuan candy constructions, and playful mock balloons that transform a simple traffic circle into a veritable winter wonderland (sans snow, of course). It’s become the selfie hotspot that everyone’s talking about. Your Instagram feed will thank you!

Behind all this festive flair is the Muang Phuket Municipality’s spirited initiative, “Discover Phuket Countdown 2024.” The aim? To sprinkle a little holiday spice onto the island’s already irresistible charm to bolster tourism during the most wonderful time of the year. The theme promises an exploration of Phuket’s thrills and delights as we edge closer to the New Year.

As evening falls, Phuket transforms into a radiant display. The Fountain Roundabout, along with major swathes of the town, becomes a glowing testament to the season, adorned with decorative lights that twinkle like stars in a tropical sky.

And just when you think it couldn’t get any more enchanting, the municipality announces a “walking street” event set for December 30. Picture the streets alive with the buzz of anticipation for the New Year—a prelude to the countdown festivities that promise to be nothing short of spectacular.

With over 350 shops confirming their participation, the walking streets of Klang Road, Soi Rommanee, Chartered Walking Street, and Phang Nga road will morph into a vibrant bazaar. Imagine strolling through an al fresco mall under the stars, where each turn brings you face-to-face with local flavors, crafts, and the irrepressible spirit of Phuket’s community.

So, if a journey to a tropical holiday paradise is what you’re after, Phuket beckons with open arms and cheery decorations. Come for the sights, stay for the festivities, and leave with memories that will keep the holiday spirit alive all the way to 2024!
