Plans for new car ferry linking Hua Hin and Sattahip gathers speed
Officials in Prachuap Khiri Khan met earlier this week to put in motion plans to build a new ferry terminal south of Hua Hin in Pak Nam Pran.
The new terminal will accommodate a car ferry and link Prachuap Khiri Khan with Sattahip in Chonburi.
Early estimates said the journey would take around two hours but ticket pricing, scheduling or when the new terminal will begin constriction are yet to be decided.
The terminal would be built as part of the new "Thailand Riveria" project, the Thai government's ambitious plan to develop 528km of coastline including in the provinces of Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon and Ranong.
It was recently announced that Hua Hin airport will be expanded as part of the Riveria project in order to accommodate more domestic and international flights.
Within the next five years the number of passengers to arrive at Hua Hin airport is expected to increase tenfold, officials said last month.
By 2023 three million people per year will use the airport, officials estimated.
