Hilton Phuket Arcadia Supports "Don’t Drive Drunk" Campaign
April 20, 2010
PHUKET, Thailand - Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa appreciates the importance of controlling traffic and limiting accidents during Songkran Festival and supported the Phuket police during the “Don’t Drive Drunk” Campaign by visiting the police at six check points while they were on duty. Hotel staff went to the various checkpoints and provided food, cold towels, energy drinks and coffee for the policemen.
The annual Songkran Festival, which is a celebration of the Thai Lunar New Year and is perhaps the most famous Thai holiday, is best known for its water splashing and joyful smiles. But unfortunately, Songkran also has a negative aspect: it is the time when drunk-driving and car accidents peak in Thailand. For many, the traditional family holiday ends up as a time of tragedy. Most accidents are caused by drunk driving.
Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa is proud to be a part of a socially responsible community.
