Infrastructure in Hua Hin is continuing to improve greatly under the new Prime Minister and government. The new Soi 112 road is complete making Southern access to town very easy if you are coming to Hua Hin from Bangkok enabling visitors to miss the Traffic of Cha Am and North Hua Hin.
Road widening and drainage improvements are underway in Soi 70, along the Pala U Road close to Soi Mon Mai as well as on the Phetchkasem Road to the South of town in the Soi 126 area and beyond.
There is also a new Ring road to the back of town, starting from Soi 88, close to Red Mountain and White Stone Villas that will link to Soi 112 and eventually 102. Progress is fast and this is a great addition to the road Network.
Hua Hin City FC sponsored by Vana Nava has a new football Stadium under construction and is on schedule for completion by the end of the year which will be great for football lovers in town, currently the team are playing in Pranburi at the Thanarat Military Stadium.
