    Phuket voted Asia’s Maritime Capital at the prestigious Christofle Asia Boating Award

    Phuket brings home boating awards

    BANGKOK: Phuket has been named Asia’s Maritime Capital at the prestigious Christofle Asia Boating Awards at the Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok by popular vote among the 20 judges, who rewarded Phuket for its “first-class boating facilities, which include modern marinas, state-of-the-art boatyards and prime chartering”.

    The annual King’s Cup sailing regatta won Yachting Event of the Year while Phuket-based Asia Marine carried off the Best Asia-Based Charter Company award.

    “The Asia’s Best Maritime Capital award is a result of our efforts through the past years to build yachting tourism on our small island. One of the key strategic directions for Phuket is to become the new ‘Marina Hub of Asia’. This award is our early success in achieving the strategy,” said Phuket Governor Niran Kanlayanamit in response to the news.

    Olivier Burlot, CEO of Adkom Media Group, organizer of the awards, said Phuket was justly voted the Asia’s Maritime Capital as the best boating location in Asia and that the award puts the region firmly on the map.

    Thailand seems to claim to be the hub of everything. I wonder if they will ever claim to be the Asian hub of "wifebeaters" alcoholics" "scene fleeing" "rape" "corruption" "ingnorance" "stubborness" etc etc etc?
