Talk News reported that a local tourism adviser was expecting 100% occupancy in Hua Hin and Cha-Am hotels at New Year.
Though it was not foreigners but Thais who were visiting in droves.
Runrot Sileuangsawat said that at the moment occupancy rates were 80% in the two seaside towns but online behavior in waiting for last minute deals and price comparisons would likely mean both resorts would be full to the rafters at New Year.

He said that at the current 80% the towns had already matched last year's figures - though the number of foreigners visiting was down.
In other related news for the holiday period Talk News said that Suphot Sermsap of the highways department had ensured that road surfacing in several traffic snarl spots would be suspended.
This would mean that four lanes would be available on roads where there are bottlenecks especially between Bangkok and Cha-Am and Hua Hin.
