On Thursday October 7th, Mr. Suwat Liptapanlop announced the opening of the ‘Blúport Recharge’ Project for the Resort Mall to support Hua Hin tourism; especially to welcome foreigners from early November, in line with the Hua Hin Recharge initiative.
Distinguished guests and members of the Thai media joined the announcement event at the Blúport Hua Hin Resort Mall.
Mr. Suwat said that due to the Covid-19 situation, over the past two years Blúport Hua Hin has needed to adjust by closing services on the 2nd and 3rd floors and the Cineplex cinema to comply with the various restrictions and to cooperate with government and public health measures.
He recognised the importance of the Hua Hin Recharge Project and the comprehensive management of vaccinations for people in target groups to open the city of Hua Hin to accommodate foreign and Thai tourists from November 1st. Coupled with the improved epidemic situation, this signals a much better future.
Mr Suwat commented on a recent survey by Airbnb, a popular hostel accommodation booking website, which found that Hua Hin tops the wish list for Thai people intending to travel.
This corresponds with the return of Air Asia flights connecting Hua Hin and Chiang Mai. He also commented on many direct international flights in the future including improvements to Hua Hin Airport by expanding the width of the runway to accommodate more flights and other initiatives of the Phoenix-Plan for the future of the airport.
“There are many positive indications for the overall tourism situation and an expectation of an active and growing tourism future,” said Mr Suwat.
Mr Suwat said that the Blúport Resort Mall has invested more than a hundred million baht to improve the structure of business administration and services with additional facilities ready to welcome tourists.
The goal is for Blúport to be a major attraction, not just a shopping centre, but a “must check in destination” for tourists to visit.
Major restructuring includes joining forces with major business partners to help welcome tourists, both Thais and foreigners, under the “Blúport Recharge” campaign.
Mr Suwat is confident that this support plan will help drive the economy and stimulate the recovery of business and employment in the Hua Hin area. With these support measures, complete products and services being available, Blúport can become a major lifestyle attraction in Hua Hin, he said.
Blúport continues to operate with complete Covid-19 prevention measures including 100% employee vaccinations and ongoing ATK screening to support the services to tourists who can be absolutely confident,” said Mr. Suwat.
