Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin made headlines today as he paid a visit to the newly renovated Hua Hin Railway Station in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

 

Aiming to bolster regional tourism, this visit falls in line with the government's strategy to improve infrastructure and local attractions through the IGNITE TOURISM THAILAND policy. The station is now positioned as a key tourist destination, exemplified by the unveiling of the STR Royal Blossom tourism train service.

 

Accompanying the Prime Minister were Deputy Minister of Transport Suraphong Piyachote and other high-ranking officials. The visit occurred on June 14 and included interactions with tourists and locals alike, providing an opportunity for direct feedback.

 

During an on-site meeting with officials, Srettha praised the newly implemented Thai design elements that were meticulously integrated into the train’s renovation.

 

The STR Royal Blossom is a refurbished passenger train that was originally from Japan. It has since been transformed by skilled Thai artisans to cater specifically to tourists.

 

The train is outfitted with state-of-the-art entertainment systems and large windows, ensuring panoramic views that enhance the travel experience along the route between Nakhon Pathom and Chumphon.

 

Innovative upgrades to the train include four private cabins that can host groups of 4–6 people, offering a more personalised experience. Additionally, three train cars have been modified into shared cabins, each seating 48 passengers.

 

One car has been entirely redesigned as a leisure area and transformed into a dining car, providing a selection of meals and refreshments to make the journey even more enjoyable.

 

These developments are expected to attract more visitors to the region, offering an upgraded travel experience that not only highlights the beauty of Thailand but also supports local economies.

 

The focus on such infrastructure improvements illustrates the government's commitment to enhancing tourism and showcasing Thailand's rich cultural heritage.

"....as he paid a visit to the newly renovated Hua Hin Railway Station..."

Lousy article.  First off, the photograph shows the PM and others standing in front of the old, rather small, and historic Hua Hin train station......none of which has been renovated.  Instead, a brand new (huge) train station has been built across the tracks.  This is what it looked like this past November (and hardly looks "Thai" at all with respect to it's design elements).
