This now legendary event is in its 23rd year and will see bike lovers roar into Phuket on amazing machines from all over the world. These motorcycle fanatics will come together on Patong Beach from 14 – 16 April 2017 and in Phuket town on 22 April.
Most visitors also spend a few days taking their bikes around the hills and roads of Phuket and showing off their bikes while enjoying the local Songkran celebrations.
As well as the displays of bikes including custom machines and unique exhibitions, there are a number of activities for people to enjoy such as beach parties, a Miss Phuket Bike Week contest, beach concerts and a Ride for Peace.
Most of these activities take place on Patong Beach and at nearby Loma park. Don’t be put off by the presence of so many burly, tattooed bikers, there’s always a fun and friendly atmosphere as enthusiasts compare their machines and show-off their big brand and custom made motorbikes and pose for selfies.
Concerts, barbecues and a food fair make it a family friendly event and there are lots of booths selling biking products including helmets, leather goods and clothing.
Phuket Bike Week is now one of the biggest bike gatherings in Asia and this year over 10,000 motorcycles and 50,000 visitors from over 30 countries are expected to attend this year.
