Stakeholders from Hua Hin Roadshow told reports that the province is on schedule to reopen in October.
With the rules that are the same as the Phuket Sandbox scheme, Hua Hin Recharge which is managed by tourism companies in collaboration with hospitals, local health authorities, tourism associations, and state organizations to expedite vaccinations, is scheduled to begin in the 4th quarter of this year after 100% of hospitality and healthcare workers and 70% of the local population, have been vaccinated. Additionally, all tourism companies must be accredited with SHA or Thailand’s Safety and Health Administration and adhere to COVID-19 standards.
Under the Hua Hin Recharge program, tourists who have been fully vaccinated and have a negative RT PCR test for COVID-19 will not be required to undergo quarantine, however, tourists must remain in the province for 14 days. There are 400 attractions and 60 available accommodations plus the province smaller than Koh Samui and Phuket, Hua Hin is way much easier to handle.
The province anticipates welcoming about 100,000 visitors and generating more than 1.2 billion baht in tourism income, owing to its closeness to Bangkok.
The Hua Hin airport is presently undergoing a significant makeover as part of the Phoenix Plan, with the goal of attracting a million foreign tourists in the next 3 years. The airport hopes to attract more airline companies to have a direct flight to Hua Hin and to establish the airport as a destination in its own right. Additionally, the airport hopes to expand its reach via agreements with Hong Kong and Singapore to expand its reach.
