Hua Hin does suffer from really poor air quality. Had a friend with lung issues, who attempted to live there, and ended up in near pulmonary arrest. 

sounds like pattaya across the water... but in pattaya he had a better chance of a happy ending...

It's a nightmare for those those who made the mistake of planning retirement in Hua Hin. A backwards country.

I will believe this when I see it. Currently, it is the most under utilized airport in the country. And they signed a deal with Air Asia two years ago, to start 36 flights a day. Thailand completely reneged on the deal. So, much has to be done, to demonstrate some good faith.

 

Deputy Transport Minister Athirat Rattanaset came to town. Really? Wanna know what the background of his boss at the transport ministry is?

 

Completed secondary school at Suan Kularb College and earned a bachelor's degree in political science from the National Institute of Development of Administration.

 

Political career

The former chairman of a working panel under interior minister Chaovarat Charnvirakul during the 2008 political crisis and a former executive of the Thai Rak Thai Party, he was banned from politics for five years after Thai Rak Thai was dissolved in 2007. He is currently secretary general of the Bhumjai Thai Party.

 

The son of politicians Chai and La-ong Chidchob and the younger brother of Newin, he is single.

 

What can one even say? We are talking about some of the least competent ministers currently in office, within the past 20 years or more. 

The kick-backs must be impressive.🤑

That's pretty much everywhere in Thailand right now.  Not a local issue.   Keep in mind we're in Asia; this is what Asia is like and always has been.   You just have cool real time apps right now with pretty colors.

Thailand need to change their motorbikes into electric motorbikes, you can buy them anywhere in the World but difficult in Thailand.

Also, all the trucks there send massive smoke out because they have non or no oil filters are great problems.

But as they say, this is Thailand.

First when turist stay away because of pollution then something will happen. In the meantime stay inside.

If they could extend the runway to 2,500m long and 45m wide, the planes could go anywhere. A problem could be the strength of the concrete. For example, Nan airport's runway concrete can take a maximum weight of 64 tons vs. AirAsia's A320 max weight of 66 tons.

I'm not convinced about these apps

It has Hua hin at 139 and Bkk at 74

" Plans are underway to transform sleepy Hua Hin into a busy international and domestic tourism hub. "

 

I imagine that if this does happen, many Thai and foreign residents of Hua Hin will be moving out.

 

The once beautiful Hua Hin which I first visited in the mid 1970s is sadly no more.

If the air in Hua Hin is bad it is ONLY because of illegal burning of garbage. This must be checked and enforced much more!
