Airport Upgrade to ‘kick start’ the future of tourism. With the airport rejuvenation plan about to get underway, the doors are ready to be opened for the transformation of Hua Hin into a prime international tourism destination.
An international airport will do away with the need for travelers to commute several hours from Bangkok, an issue that has long been a major tourism disincentive.
At present the airport is well able to support Boeing 737 aircraft, and the plan is now the extend and widen the runway to accommodate and have this in place by mid 2021. After that 100 million baht will be spent on developing the airport terminal building during the second stage in 2022.
Hua Hin has long been regarded as a secondary tourism destination by international travelers, but those in the know say the doors are ready to be opened so that our city can be transformed into “Amazing Hua Hin !”
