Officials in Prachuap Khiri Khan met earlier this week to put in motion plans to build a new ferry terminal south of Hua Hin in Pak Nam Pran.

 

The new terminal will accommodate a car ferry and link Prachuap Khiri Khan with Sattahip in Chonburi.

 

Early estimates said the journey would take around two hours but ticket pricing, scheduling or when the new terminal will begin constriction are yet to be decided.

 

The terminal would be built as part of the new "Thailand Riviera” project, the Thai government's ambitious plan to develop 528km of coastline including in the provinces of Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon and Ranong. 

 

It was recently announced that Hua Hin airport will be expanded as part of the Riviera project in order to accommodate more domestic and international flights.

 

Within the next five years the number of passengers to arrive at Hua Hin airport is expected to increase tenfold, officials said last month.

 

By 2023 three million people per year will use the airport, officials estimated.

Now it would be a time to do something about traffic congestion in Hua Hin. 15 years ago it was a sleepy town with one traffic light. Nowadays, you can't move.

Need to send people to Sattahip, home of the aircraftless aircraft carrier and soon to be a new National Park ( aircraft carrier marine National Park sounds good). Hua Hin people welcome!

In other words when is any Thai government going to get serious to promote, encourage, push the establishment of more manufacturing and other industries to create very large numbers of job opportunities?
