The former chief of the Prachuap Khiri Khan Tourism Authority of Thailand office told the Thai media that Hua Hin has a great future ahead.
She said that come November 1st domestic Thai tourists and Europeans are expected to arrive as the resort reopens.
Grants given to establish the airport as an international one would be a great boon for the resort.
But Orasa Awutkhom – four years the TAT area chief – cautioned that despite the great majority of the people of the area being double vaxxed this could all come to nothing if illegal migrants arrive to work in the sector.
This and the continuing problems of illegal hotels in Hua Hin need to be addressed as a matter or urgency, she said.
