Security at Hua Hin to be stepped up for high season

As the high season for tourism at Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province has set to begin in October, the provincial police will step up security measures, including use of helicopters for rescue operations along the coastline, Pol Maj Gen Angkul Klaiklueng says.

Pol Maj Gen Angkul, commnder of the 3rd Tourist Police Division, said this after taking an inspection trip to tourist spots in the municipal area including Hua Hin beaches, night markets and beer bars on Wednesday (Sept 20).

He was accompanied in the inspection by officials of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and representatives of tourism business associations in Hua Hin and Cha-am.

“We will have patrol boats and helicopters bought by the Royal Thai Police for rescue operations. Patrols will be carried out by sea, land and air to ensure tourists of safety,” Pol Maj Gen Angkul said.

Orasa Arvutkhom, director of TAT’s Prachuap Khiri Khan office, said she expects the tourist arrivals will increase from next month.

So far about 5 million tourists, both Thais and foreigners, have visited tourist spots in Prachuap Khiri Khan this year and the number is expected to go up by at least 10% by year-end, she said.
