A municipality meeting organised by the Hua Hin mayor on Monday discussed ideas to raise the profile of the town as a tourism destination.
One of the plans is to create a tower and walkway with 360 degree views on Hin Lek Fai hill.
This will be adorned with a "Hollywood" style sign screaming "HUA HIN" in huge letters that can be seen for miles around.
The project is called "Hua Hin Sky Walk and Tower"
Many buzzwords were bandied around like confetti at the meeting chaired by mayor Noppaporn Wuthikun, as reported by Talk News Online.
These included making Hua Hin a "Smart City" and lots of references to "Thailand 4.0".
The local authority also want to improve safety for visitors by installing better CCTV coverage.
