- Hua Hin: The Mall Group pulls out of investment in "Bluport Hua Hin"
Picture: The Bangkok Insight
After persistent rumors The Bangkok Insight has said from its sources that The Mall Group has withdrawn its investment in the company that runs the shopping center Bluport Hua Hin Resort Mall.
The company has faced mounting losses ever since they opened the mall in 2016.
They have reportedly sold their shares for one baht each.
The medium sized shopping center was a joint investment by The Mall Group and Proud Real Estate under a company banner called Hua Hin Asset Co Ltd.
It was opened on October 1st 2016 and represented the second foray into malls in the provinces after The Mall Group opened up in Korat in 2000.
They own several major malls in Bangkok.
It was part of a plan for seaside malls, open in style, called "The Blu Collection". It was built at a cost of 5 billion baht on 200,000 square meters opposite the Intercontinental Hotel in the downtown area of the tourist city that is 220 kms south of the Thai capital Bangkok.
Now after persistent rumors over the past 2-3 months the media said that they had pulled out.
The media reported losses of 60 million baht in 2016, 175 million in 2017, 138 million in 2018 and 207 million in 2019.

- Google Maps now displays COVID-19 infections in Hua Hin
Google Maps is now displaying the location of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Hua Hin.
Google Maps introduced its so-called ‘COVID layer’ feature last year in order to display local infection rates to users.
The feature informs users on how the virus is spreading locally so they can plan ahead before travelling to a location.
The feature details where infections are rising or declining by using a colour coded system with grey being the lowest and dark red signalling when there have been more than 40 local cases.
Google says it uses “multiple authoritative sources” to source the relevant information on the number of infections, understood to be official data from Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health.
The feature is part of Google’s effort to assist in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
“As global communities respond to COVID-19, we’ve heard from public health officials that the same type of aggregated, anonymized insights we use in products such as Google Maps could be helpful as they make critical decisions to combat COVID-19,” a spokesperson for the tech giant said when the feature launched last year.
“These Community Mobility Reports aim to provide insights into what has changed in response to policies aimed at combating COVID-19.
“The reports chart movement trends over time by geography, across different categories of places such as retail and recreation, groceries and pharmacies, parks, transit stations, workplaces, and residential.”
The news comes after 87 new COVID-19 infections were reported in Hua Hin on Friday.
