The head of the Hua Hin Recharge project aimed at reopening to foreign tourists in Hua Hin has slammed the government and the CCSA for their constant flip-flopping and delays.

Krod Rojanastien said it was a constant tug of war between parties in the government that had left the private sector looking for answers and confidence among potential foreign tourists being eroded.

“Each delay is sending out another negative message,” he said.

The plan was to open the Prachuap Khiri Khan resort on October 1st but this has been put back a whole month along with Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Pattaya, and Cha-Am.

Krod wants the green light for foreigners to start coming set for October 15th.

He said that 70% double vaccinated herd immunity will be achieved in the area by 14th/15th October.

This was one of the obstacles, he told the Thai media, and with tourism businesses on their knees they want to open as soon as possible.

Fortunately domestic demand is increasing so traders have that but Krod said many foreigners want clear ideas of when they can return and no changes – there are plenty waiting to come, he claimed.
