Hua Hin already one of the top cities in the world on tourism, sports and cultural activities. Now, the government is allocating some budget for transport and road improvement to the city. Mr. Suwat Liptapanlop, the former Deputy Prime Minister and owner of Intercontinental Hua Hin Resort, said at the Retro Hua Hin 101 Year Anniversary that the city was ranked the 20th among other places worldwide which are famous for peacefulness and fascinating sport, tourism and local cultural events.

This record is mainly for further reference to be used by tourists around the world. Mr. Suwat added that Hua Hin had many all-year-round activities held by governmental and private agencies – ranging from world-class sport competitions like tennis, polo, surfing to local and traditional ceremonies including paying homage to ‘Luang Poh Tuad’ at Wat Huay Mongkol Buddhist Temple. Devout Buddhists said that a wish made to ‘Luang Poh Tuad’ would soon become true. That is why not only local people but also visitors from other areas of Thailand frequently go to the temple.

Since the main attraction to tourists all over the world lies in the above-mentioned activities, the former Deputy Prime Minister asked local people, public and private staff as well as businesspeople and hoteliers to keep organizing the events and foster local tradition as this brings about more income to all types of business in Hua Hin. Mr. Suwat also stated that the government needed to play a key role with the Hua Hin Municipality in improving roads and transport to the city, particularly the Phetchakasem road that leads to Hua Na community which should be expanded into a 4-lane road until the Hua Hin bypass where the new district office is located. With this road improvement, traffic in central Hua Hin will be less congested.
Now, there is a big 5-year-long project concerning expanding a railway route for double track trains from Bangkok to Hua Hin and southern provinces of Thailand. Once it is completed, Hua Hin will certainly become as fully grown and modernized as other tourist cities in the world, concluded Mr. Suwat. Local News By Chamnan By Chamnan.
