Hua Hin and Cha-Am boom towns at New Year! 100% occupancy expected though less foreigners

Talk News reported that a local tourism adviser was expecting 100% occupancy in Hua Hin and Cha-Am hotels at New Year. 

 

Though it was not foreigners but Thais who were visiting in droves. 

 

Runrot Sileuangsawat said that at the moment occupancy rates were 80% in the two seaside towns but online behavior in waiting for last minute deals and price comparisons would likely mean both resorts would be full to the rafters at New Year.

He said that at the current 80% the towns had already matched last year's figures - though the number of foreigners visiting was down. 

 

In other related news for the holiday period Talk News said that Suphot Sermsap of the highways department had ensured that road surfacing in several traffic snarl spots would be suspended. 

 

This would mean that four lanes would be available on roads where there are bottlenecks especially between Bangkok and Cha-Am and Hua Hin.

The entire area, from Cha-am, south to Ban Saphan, benefits from a massive amount of Thai tourism. There is no doubt that Western tourism is way down this year, and it is part of a continuing trend, that has been slowing for years now, and the trend has accelerated under this hapless administration.

While hotels and restaurants don't care who pays as long as they are busy and the "ladies" and bars will be concerned with business down it is the government who should be deeply concerned. Foreign currency from foreign tourists is far more valuable than domestic tourism which shuffles money around the sandbox. Foreign tourists/money adds sand to the sandbox. Maybe that is what is needed to weaken the foreign currency account and lower the value of the baht, but once tourists find a new play area they often don't return until the newfound destination pisses them off.

Seen Hua Hin one busy New Years Eve, had a great time, but the city was busy and filled

with lots of people. Guess that is why I wlll arrive in the third week as rooms should be

available by that time.
