Hua Hin Airport expansion to help transform sleepy resort into a truly international tourist destination

I don't trust those apps 100%, there is a strong breeze everyday at the moment so I can't believe the air is too bad here. I used to have to use a ventolin inhaler in the UK, never touched it whilst living here!

It was in both Cha-Am and Hua Hin this morning about 175 

If you don't trust the apps just look at the mountains, this morning you could easy see how dirty the air is.  Properly from burning, it goes a little down in the afternoon but raise again during the night. The morning air is here very unhealthy.

Sugar cane farming has turned this city, once known for its fresh air, into a very filthy place. Another great achievement of the present leadership.

I think 45 meter is print error.

For International flight it should be about 60-meter-wide and 3,7 km long.

As I understand it Hua Hins runway at the present is 35-meter-wide and 2,1 km. long so adding 45 meters makes it 2,145 km long.  

Thai experts calculations using Thai calculators, says it all !

Just like glorious Pattaya across the bay. Basically , there goes the neighborhood. Hua Hin was always supposed to be a lot classier than the tearaway known as Queen of the Eastern Seaboard. Maybe because a much loved figure used to spend time up the road at his Klai Kangwon Palace..

I'm in Cha am today, lovely fresh mountain air about 8 clicks from the beach.

I lived in chaam fur 3 years before moving OUTSIDE Huahin 3 months ago. 

I can assure you the air can be good and bad in either place depending on the season and the wind. 

 

Unfortunately it probably won't get better any time soon. If you get the Air Visual app you can monitor air in both places and see what I mean.

From a sleepy resort destination that I liked to visit transformed into another Pattaya style hell-hole.

Sure you are in the right place? I've lived there nearly twenty years and never seen a mountain close by. 

 

Right now, AQI count is an "unhealthy" 151 and the PM2.5 count of 56.2 is more than twice the WHO safe limit.

 

Hope you're wearing a good quality mask!

Hua Hin's only charm is that it's sleepy. Once that changes, it will have no appeal whatsoever.
