Our Hua Hin office had a very pleasant surprise a couple of weeks ago with a visit by the Sheraton public relations staff followed up with a visit by the Amari Marketing Communications Manager calling by to wish all our staff best wishes to begin 2016. This was a really nice touch by Khun Tararat and Khub Kwan (Sheraton) and Khun Jeab (Amari) that we all appreciated; and that wasn’t just because of the delicious sweet treats they provided. Our visit to Bakery Terrace continued the ‘sweet treats’ theme, just one of the hazards of the job. Personal contact is always the best form of communication to strengthen relationships and understanding.
Last our month our ‘personal contacts’ included the opportunity to meet with Hua Hin’s Lord Mayor, Khun Nopporn Vuttikul, also known by his nickname as Khun Nui. He’s a man with a really positive vision for the future of Hua Hin Driving into Black Mountain Golf Course will never be the same again. The ‘baby’ of the course is now growing-up from being a par three to become a ‘fully grown’ third championship nine holes. This is another major investment for the future of regional golf and by the end of the year another great golfing experience will arrive. Hot on the heels of ‘Merry Christmas’ and ’Happy New Year’, February celebrates Valentines and Chinese New Year’s Day. I guess if you happen to have a Chinese spouse or lover the days could be combined though I’m not sure what that would look like.
