A key figure from Hua Hin’s tourism sector has called for the town’s planned November 1 reopening to be postponed, due on the ongoing COVID-19 situation in the province.

 

Udom Srimahachota, Honorary Advisor to the Hua Hin and Cha Am chapter of the Thai Hotels Association, said the reopening of Hua Hin should be postponed to December in the interests of public health.

 

Mr Udom, who also owns the Baan Talay Dao Resort, said that local businesses are worried about the recent and sudden rise in infections throughout Prachuap Khiri Khan, which includes the discovery of a number of clusters in Hua Hin.

He already won because he is still in charge of the military.

Are they the same businesses worried about no customers before ? Or businesses less reliant on tourism or with healthy bank accounts that can wait for the little guy to go out of business ?

Hua Hin was packed this weekend. 

Only thai people from Bangkok which some of them will probably spread the virus because they all live by the mai pen rai sytem and me first

Weekend traffic jambs in Cha Amm, as double vaxed Thais head from BK to the beach, this could mean a spread of covid through Hua Hin, as you can still spread the virus even if 2x jabbed????

I would be more worried about that than tourism from overseas coming back.
