    With less than two weeks to go until the official reopening to foreign tourists of Hua Hin, Siam Rath reported that the seaside resort in Prachuap Khiri Khan was packed with domestic tourists at the weekend.

    Quoting a local city hall official called Jirawat Phrommanee they said that the beach from Central to Khao Takiab was crowded with visitors from Bangkok and surrounding areas.

    Torung market was also heaving with shoppers.

    Other reports from ASEAN NOW staff in the resort reported that “traffic was a nightmare!”

    It’s a nightmare that bodes well for October 1st, however, after months of closures and isolation at one of Thailand’s most popular seaside destinations about 220 kms south of the Thai capital.

    Siam Rath also reported that the confidence for visitors was boosted by targets for the vaccination of the local population being met.

    The last 4,000 doses of a 50 million baht free rollout of Sinopharm jabs from the Chulabhorn Royal Institute were administered at Hua Hin hospital under the watchful eye of Hua Hin officials at the weekend.

    The security of tourists has also not been forgotten with 118 places having a 468 CCTV camera upgrade.

    Five detailed plans for the reopening of the resort will be submitted to the Covid-19 authorities this Wednesday for approval.

    Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is set to rule on the proposed October 1 reopening of Hua Hin at a meeting due to be held later this week.

    The Tourism Authority of Thailand will formally submit the proposal to reopen Hua Hin, and four other provinces, to the CCSA for approval at a meeting scheduled for September 23.

    The meeting will also decide if sufficient number of vaccines have been administered in Hua Hin and throughout Prachuap Khiri Khan, as well as in neighbouring Cha Am and Phetchaburi.

    To date, approximately 40 percent of the total population of Prachuap Khiri Khan has received a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine , while just 26 percent of the entire province is fully vaccinated.

    However, health officials have said they expect 80 percent of the total population of Hua Hin to be fully vaccinated by the end of September.

    It is a similar story in Phetchaburi, which also hopes the green light will be give for Cha Am to reopen on October 1.

    In Phetchaburi, 47% of the total population of the province have received one COVID-19 vaccine dose, while 27% of the province are fully vaccinated.

    On Friday, Prachuap Khiri Khan’s leading health official said the province had requested an additional 210,000 vaccine doses to help accelerate the rollout of the vaccine throughout the province.

    The proposals, if approved, would see vaccinated foreign tourists be able to stay in Hua Hin without the need to quarantine.

    However, they would be required to undergo at least three COVID-19 tests during their stay.

    Earlier this month, Isra Stapanaseth, the newly appointed director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s Prachuap Khiri Khan confirmed to Hua Hin Today the measures put in place for tourists visiting Hua Hin from October 1.

    These measures include:

    1. Gaining a Certificate of Entry to Thailand (COE)
    2. Obtaining a negative RT-PCR COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior to travel
    3. Showing a COVID-19 vaccination record card
    4. Further RT-PCR COVID-19 testing after arrival at Survarnabhumbi
    5. Further RT-PCR COVID-19 testing after arrival at hotel in Hua Hin. 
    6. Guests will then be required to stay in the hotel for three hours while awaiting the results of the test.
    7. If the test is confirmed negative they will then be free to leave the hotel but they must stay within the Hua Hin City and Nong Kae districts.
    8. They will then be required to take further RT-PCR COVID-19 tests on day 7 and day 13 of their stay.
    9. If the test is negative after day 13, they will be able to travel throughout Thailand.

    Thai language news site Manager reported that the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s chief in Prachuap Khiri Khan province was confident of improvements to the Hua Hin economy when the seaside resort opens up to foreign tourists next month.

    Isra Stapanaseth expects most of the visitors to be Hong Kongers, Scandinavians, Malaysians and Singaporeans.

    He said he had been working on five plans that involved vaccination, marketing and mitigation if things go awry.

    The plans and SOPs are due to go to local authorities and then the central CCSA committee for approval.

    Issara said that most of the direct flights into Hua Hin would come from within a 5-6 hour flight radius with the principal ones arriving from Hong Kong as well as ASEAN.

    The Manager report was surprisingly lacking in predictions of numbers or revenue.

    Other reports that mentioned expectations have been widely ridiculed.

    Hua Hin’s “recharge” opening – still slated for October 1st – is part of Thailand’s second phase of reopening after the Phuket Sandbox and Samui Plus Model were initiated over the last few months.

    This second phase includes Chiang Mai, Pattaya/Sattahip and Cha-Am though confusion reigns as to when Bangkok will reopen to foreigners.

    80 percent of the total population of Hua Hn will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of September, the province’s leading health official has said.

    According to provincial health chief Dr. Suriya Kuharat, health officials are on course to have administered two vaccine doses to 80 percent of people registered as living in Hua Hin district before October 1.

    Crucially, this exceeds the vaccination target set by the Hua Hin Recharge project, which aims to reopen Hua Hin to vaccinated international tourists without quarantine from October 1.

    After getting off to a slow start, the rollout of the vaccine to people in Hua Hin has gathered significant pace in recent months.

    Hua Hin’s vaccination campaign has been boosted by the arrival of 50,000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine, which was procured by Hua Hin Municipality from the Chulabhorn Royal Academy.

    Doses of the Sinopharm vaccine have been given to people registered as living in Hua Hin district.

    The rollout of the vaccine to foreigners in Hua Hin has also been expedited since the start of September.

    Foreigners who registered to receive a vaccine via the Expat Vac website have now started to receive a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, with vaccinations administered at Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin.

    At the time of posting, more than 1,000 foreigners in Hua Hin have already received a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

    In addition, the rollout of the Sinovac and/or the AstraZeneca vaccine to people in Hua Hin who registered via the Mor Prom system continues at Hua Hin Hospital.

    An investigation has been launched into the alleged use of an official police van by officers on a jaunt to Cha Am beach.

    The commissioner of Nakhon Ratchasima police Panurat Lakboon said he will launch an investigation into the incident after a video of people getting out of the van at Cha Am beach went viral on social media.

    The video, which was also widely reported by Thai language news outlets, showed officers and women in casual clothes sitting and eating at Cha Am beach.

    Netizens later discovered that the van in the video was registered to Phon Krang police station in Nakhon Ratachsima, also known as Korat, which is located some 420 kilometres away from Cha Am.

    Senior police admitted the officers in question had no official business to be in Cha Am and it appears the van was used for personal use.

    People commenting online said that it was inappropriate for the officers to use the van for a trip to the beach.

    Senior police investigating the incident said that if wrongdoing is proven, the officers in question will face disciplinary action.

    Prachuap Khiri Khan Provincial Public Health Office has requested an additional 210,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses in a bid to fully vaccinate 70 percent of the province.

    The request comes just two weeks before Hua Hin is set to reopen to international foreign tourists.

    On Friday (Sept 16) provincial public health chief Dr. Suriya Kuharat revealed that a formal request has been made for 210,000 additional vaccine doses.

    Dr. Suriya said the additional vaccines will be enough to ensure 70 percent of the population of the entire province will be vaccinated.

    By reaching the 70 percent vaccination target, this is likely to result in more districts throughout the province being opened to tourism, Dr. Suriya said.

    However, there are also other factors to consider in reopening other districts, including ensuring businesses that operate in the tourism industry are awarded the SHA and SHA Plus safety certification from the provincial Tourism Authority.

    A drive is currently under way to ensure businesses meet the SHA safety standards, which officials have said is essential in the reopening in order to ensure safety, limit the spread of the virus and build confidence among tourists who may visit the province.

    Dr. Suriya also gave an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province, particularly in Hua Hin which has reported the highest cumulative total of infections of any district in the province.

    Currently health officials are dealing with a cluster at the Royal Thai Army Sergeant School in Hua Hin district, which has resulted in a total of 190 cases, out of a total of 1,900 people tested.

    Dr. Suriya said that high risk people from the cluster have been sent to quarantine, and given a substance of Povidone-Iodine concentrate of 0.6%, which is used to kill viruses in the nasal cavity in the high-risk groups during quarantine, making the outbreak less widespread.

    Meanwhile, the cluster at Prachuap Prison has now resulted in a total of 500 confirmed cases out of 2,300 inmates.

    Due to the increasing number of cases linked to the prison, there is a temporary restriction on people visiting and leaving. The restrictions will be in place for 28 days from Sept 20.

    Infected inmates continue to be placed in quarantine so not to mix with the rest of the prison population.
