"We will focus our investment in Hua Hin because we believe the seaside resort town will become a true world-class tourist destination like Nice or Cannes," Wonder what the moaning minnies will say? Well it will certainly kill the thread about living on 45.000 baht per month. I guess I will have to...

For the extra comfort and I think personally a higher safety choice I would take a pass on the mini-van and get the A.C bus from the south terminal or Swampy. But again what do I know.

Re: Tourism set for B1bn revival plan
