Phuket is set to play host to the celebration of Passover for the first time this year.

Some people taking flights to Phuket in the coming months could be planning to attend the city’s first ever celebration of the Jewish festival of Pesach.

The festival, which is also known as Passover, will be marked in the Thai city for the first time this year due to the amount of demand being seen for the event.

Held in JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort and Spa between April 5th and 15th 2012, the event will be overseen by Kosher Australia to ensure all food served has been prepared correctly.

”This will be a memorable sun filled Passover experience for anyone wanting to do something completely different for Pesach this year,” said programme organiser Lisa Mochkin.

She added that as most celebrations last for eight days their ten-day event could prove an attractive draw.

People taking flights to Phuket will frequently find a fantastic mix of events to entertain them, with the Laguna Phuket Triathlon taking place in the city each November.
