Phuket Bike Week is one of the biggest motorcycle events in Southeast Asia. Held annually and now in it’s 17th year, the Phuket Bike Week runs across three nights and four days, leading up to the Songkran New Year Festival and making Phuket the place to be in April. The event is now recognized as an official tourist activity and it is estimated that it creates 800 million baht of revenue annually. Every event has a socially aware theme, such as riding for “world peace” or being against illegal drugs.
