This program for improving the infrastructure includes the extensions of motorways and the construction of double tracks from Bangkok’s Bang Sue Central station via Hua Hin to Chumpon. Trains will travel the route at up to 160 kilometres per hour. The new tracks—due to be completed at the end of 2022—will enable trains to travel between Bangkok and Hua Hin in less than three hours. The Hua Hin Airport will be extended at the same time, welcoming international aircrafts from many countries around the world.
