Amid the continuing doom and gloom of the collapse of the Thai tourism industry, officials in Hua Hin and Cha-Am put a positive spin on a rise in recent visitors to the area. 

 

Wasana Srikanchana, the chief of the Hua Hin and Cha-Am tourism business association welcomed Soraya Hormcheun, head of the Prachuap Khiri Khan TAT to a monthly meeting of many officials including the tourist police and Air Asia reps at the Holiday Inn hotel.

 

Wasana acknowledged that most tourists to the area were Thais coming at weekends and holidays. There were few midweek and foreign tourists were non-existent. This was no different to the rest of Thailand, she noted.

But promotions to people in Chiang Mai and Udon Thani in particular had resulted in more visitors from there.

 

There was also good work going on between the association, local government and the TAT to promote various events up to the end of this year and beyond. She cited the Loy Krathong festival that will be celebrated at the end of the month with various beach side events.

Sawit Wongsawan, the station manager of Air Asia echoed the positivity, as reported by Manager, saying that the "Jangwat Phii Jangwat Nong" (provincial brothers and sisters) project had inspired visitors from several other Thai provinces and that Air Asia arrivals at Hua Hin airport were at 70% of capacity. 

 

Requests were coming in from Malaysia for daily flights in January, though he noted that the capacity of Hua Hin airport made this impossible at this time.

Good to see the Hua Hin to Udon route is a success, I was looking to book more flights for next year, I note that there is nothing scheduled after late March, maybe they haven’t loaded them yet.
