This is a Bing translation of an article in talknewsonline:
On 1 October 61 Mr. Jeerawat Pramanee, Permanent Secretary of Municipality of Hua Hin Prachuap Khiri Khan Hua Hin municipality, Mr. Nopporn Wuttikul, Mayor of Hua Hin, met with the city councils and agencies to present the project to study the design and development of the municipality of Hua Hin to smart city or the city of intelligent. To study the feasibility of the municipality of Hua Hin ready to step into the smart city concept in line with the national development strategy in the Sixth Strategic Plan for the development of the state management system. Enhancing public service and administration of state-owned organizations with digital and technology.

It also complies with the Government's Thailand 4.0 policy, which focuses on technology development and innovation. The system works in the office, reducing the use of paper, CCTV cameras around the city for public safety and the concept of building. "Hua Hin Sky Walk Tower" on Hin Lek Fai, a scenic spot in Hua Hin Municipality to accommodate future tourists.

Firstly, we have to design the style of the tower has a high view of the city of Hua Hin 360 degrees with the walkway around him as a glass like a foreign country. The large logo "Hua Hin" is a symbol that is clearly visible. After studying through the approval of all parties, then the budget will go to the center to continue.

Delusions of grandeur, politically motivated. Will they call it Jeerawat Tower or Nopporn Tower, alike the famous Banharn Tower in Suphanburi.

I think you're correct. China is emerging from the rural rustic look and I would think stainless and glass will excite them more than traditional Thai architecture. :banghead: Pete :cheers:

It reminds me of the telecom tower in Kuala Lumpur, the one with revolving restaurant, Menara KL I think it's called. But at least that doesn't look too out of place in the middle of a bustling city, and it dwarfs in comparison to Petronas TT nearby, and all the high rise hotels and condos and offices. This one just sticks out like a VERY VERY sore thumb.

It will be impressive if they actually manage to make the H an U from HUA HIN gravitate in mid air as in the artist rendering
