    Go Kart Hua Hin

    Karting provides an exciting experience and fun time with friends or family. Go Kart Hua Hin is located opposite Hua Hin airport in soi 2 (when coming from Cha-am, take the first u-turn after the airport then turn left in soi 2). You can arrive and drive, a popular option is 1,000 baht for 26 minutes (two sessions of 13 minutes). They have two-seaters (with two steering wheels) so you can take kids onboard.

    Before you hit the track, Neil the manager explains how the karts work and gives you advice for your safety. Staff is always ready to help you if you get stuck on the track. We recommend that you wear trousers and proper shoes. Helmets are provided on site.

    An accident involving two pick-ups, a car and a truck trailer left seven people seriously injured in Cha-Am yesterday morning. It happened as a man in a pick-up was trying to do a U-turn by the Bor Khaem PTT gas station. There was a collision that resulted in two pick-ups being propelled onto the other side of the road into two oncoming vehicles – a truck trailer and a Camry. The injured were Thai men and women in their twenties and thirties.

    Following our previous article about the man who was found in blood with his face smashed in, in an undamaged car with fingerprints in blood outside the door, his wife confessed that she murdered him and staged an accident. Both police and her father believed her new lover was involved, and eventually the wife admitted as much. Some friends then helped staged an accident.

    A man was found dead behind the wheel of a pick up by a large tree on the Cha-Am to Pranburi southbound bypass yesterday, near the Petchaburi animal feed research and development center. The man was reckoned to have been dead for six or seven hours. What seemed stranged is that the car with Phetchaburi plate was undamaged, and the man’s face was smashed in, both eyes and nose having suffered blunt force trauma. Even stranger, there were fingerprints in blood on the outside door handle of the passenger door. Police are investigating and checking the CCTV recordings.

    Two men were shot in Cha-Am near in the Bo Khaem canal (Huay Sai Tai area). One was given CPR but died from a gunshot wound to the chest, while the other was taken to hospital. The mother of the shooter said that the two men had a long running feud with her son. They started aiming at each other with catapults, then the other men got knives, so her son got a gun and shot them. He then fled into the woods and Cha-Am police are looking for him.

  • Covid-19: Progressive easing of restrictions

    This article has last been updated on 19 June 2020 (6.00 pm). For a reminder of what the lockdown was like in Cha-am and in Thailand at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic (March-April 2020), please see this article.

    The curfew has been lifted and restaurants can now sell alcohol. Shopping malls are open, as well as markets and shops… Beauty clinics, fitness centers and swimming pools can open under strict conditions. Travel restrictions are lifted but progressively, so it is still recommended not to travel if not necessary. Since 20 May 2020 most of the hotels can reopen, but guesthouses can rent only 4 rooms and must refuse clients from these 10 provinces: Bangkok, Yala, Hat Yai, Phuket, Nakon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Suphan Buri, Pracchinburi, Chonburi and Chiang Rai. Cha-am beach is open again normally.

    On the negative side, bars and entertainment venues are still closed. Travel between provinces can still be difficult in some cases. The ban on incoming international flights has been extended to 30 June 2020, so foreigners whether they are tourists or married to a Thai national, can’t come to Thailand until at least July. Only the work permit holders are allowed back in Thailand on a case by case basis.

    As for the rest, what they call the “new normal” will be imposed on us and we will have to bear with wearing a mask in public, temperature checks, social distancing and even tracking applications.
