    Well, it is the rainy season….

    Heavy rain is expected to continue throughout the week in Hua Hin, as thundershowers and isolated heavy rains are predicted across various parts of Thailand.

    This weather pattern is due to the moderate southwest monsoon prevailing over the country, according to the Thai Meteorological Department.

    The weather forecast for Hua Hin over the next seven days indicates consistent heavy rain, with wave heights of 1-2 metres and temperatures ranging from a high of 34°C to a low of 24°C. Rainfall is expected to cover 60% of the area daily, with a slight increase to 70% on Thursday and Friday.

    Seven-day weather forecast for Hua Hin:

    • 15 July: Heavy rain, max temp 34°C, min temp 24°C, 60% chance of rain
    • 16 July: Heavy rain, max temp 32°C, min temp 24°C, 60% chance of rain
    • 17 July: Heavy rain, max temp 32°C, min temp 24°C, 60% chance of rain
    • 18 July: Heavy rain, max temp 30°C, min temp 24°C, 70% chance of rain
    • 19 July: Heavy rain, max temp 30°C, min temp 24°C, 70% chance of rain
    • 20 July: Heavy rain, max temp 32°C, min temp 24°C, 60% chance of rain
    • 21 July: Heavy rain, max temp 33°C, min temp 24°C, 60% chance of rain

    In addition, a weather warning issued on 14 July remains in effect until 18 July. The warning highlights heavy to very heavy rain, strong wind-waves in the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf of Thailand. This is attributed to the strong monsoon trough lying across the North and Northeast of Thailand into an active low-pressure cell over the middle coast of Vietnam, combined with the rather strong southwest monsoon over the Andaman Sea, Thailand, and the Gulf.

    Residents and visitors in Hua Hin are advised to stay updated on weather reports and exercise caution during this period of heavy rainfall and potential strong winds.

    Recent reports from local officials have debunked a viral TikTok video that claimed Cha-am Beach was deserted and devoid of tourists.

    The video, posted by user “tetee1217,” showed empty beach chairs and a quiet shoreline, sparking widespread concern and speculation about the state of tourism in the area.

    The video, which quickly gained traction on social media and was covered extensively by Thai language media, depicted Cha-am Beach on a seemingly quiet Sunday. The user expressed shock at the empty scene, leading many viewers to speculate on the reasons behind the apparent lack of visitors.

    However, an inspection conducted by several agencies over the weekend revealed a different reality. On July 14, Pol. Lt. Gen. Saksira Phuak-am, Commander of the Tourist Police, along with local officials and business representatives, visited Cha-am Beach to assess the situation. They found that the video had been taken in the late afternoon, around the time when beach chairs were being packed away, which gave the impression of a deserted beach.

    Pol. Lt. Col. Anatchai Kontong, Inspector of Tourist Police 2, Division 1, Tourist Police Division 3, reported that the inspection team, including the Cha-am Police, Phetchaburi Provincial Tourism and Sports Office, and the Thai Hotels Association, confirmed that the beach was indeed busy, especially at the northern viewpoint.

    Mr. Sripet Inphantang, Deputy Mayor of Cha-am Municipality, stated that the beach typically sees a steady flow of tourists and educational groups. He assured that the claims of a deserted Cha-am Beach were unfounded. “Especially on weekends, many tourists visit the beach, and local businesses enjoy regular patronage. Hotels and accommodations are frequently booked,” Mr. Sripet added.

    Local businesses also confirmed the continuous influx of tourists, expressing satisfaction with the current state of affairs. Pol. Lt. Col. Anatchai noted that tourists have been pleased with the services and the overall convenience and safety of the area, further debunking the misleading portrayal in the viral video.

    Authorities and local officials invite the public to visit Cha-am Beach to experience its lively atmosphere firsthand, reiterating that the area remains a popular destination for both tourists and locals.

    The move is part of policy from the Thai government under the leadership of Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin to boost tourism and the economy.

    The new measures focus on four key areas, which will all come into effect on July 15, 2024:

    1. Visa exemptions (visa free)

    Increasing the number of countries/territories eligible for visa exemption to Thailand from 57 to 93.

    This announcement introduces a new visa type, Destination Thailand Visa (DTV), for foreigners wishing to stay in Thailand for work and tourism (workcation). This includes high-skill groups, freelancers, remote workers, or those wanting to stay for activities such as learning Muay Thai, culinary arts, sports training, medical treatments, training, seminars, art and music exhibitions. The DTV allows a stay in Thailand for up to 180 days, with a visa validity of 5 years.

    4. Non-Immigrant Visa code ED

    This announcement updates the rights for foreign students pursuing undergraduate and higher degrees with a Non-Immigrant Visa code ED. It aims to attract skilled individuals to the labor market by extending the stay in Thailand for one year after graduation for job seeking, traveling, or other activities.

    Prachuap Khiri Khan Immigration officials, in coordination with the Provincial Employment Office, conducted a raid at Hua Hin Night Market, resulting in the arrest of two illegal foreign workers on Friday (July 12).

    Pol. Col. Setthaphat Na Songkhla, Superintendent of Prachuap Khiri Khan Immigration, directed Pol. Lt. Col. Natthawat Kaewthipnet, Inspector of Prachuap Khiri Khan Immigration, to lead the investigation. The raid uncovered two Myanmar nationals, identified as Khant Kyaw Aung, 20, and Kaung Htet, 19, working at grilled squid and jellyfish stalls, respectively. Both individuals were earning a daily wage of 300 baht without the necessary travel documents or work permits.

    The arrested workers admitted to entering Thailand illegally several years ago and seeking employment to support themselves. Their actions violate the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979) and the Management of Foreign Workers’ Employment Act B.E. 2560 (2017), which prohibits foreign nationals from working without a permit or beyond the scope of their authorized activities.

    Their employer was also apprehended for allowing the illegal employment, facing charges under the same employment act. The employer could be penalized with up to five years in prison and a fine of up to 50,000 baht for knowingly harboring illegal immigrants.

    Pol. Col. Setthaphat Na Songkhla emphasized the severe penalties for violating these laws. Foreign workers without proper permits face fines ranging from 5,000 to 50,000 baht, deportation, and a two-year ban on obtaining a work permit after serving their sentence. Employers hiring undocumented workers or allowing them to exceed their authorized work capacity face fines between 10,000 and 100,000 baht per worker. Repeat offenses can lead to imprisonment of up to one year, fines from 50,000 to 200,000 baht per worker, and a three-year ban on hiring foreign workers.

    If the foreign worker is an illegal immigrant, the employer faces additional charges under the Immigration Act B.E. 2522 (1979), with penalties of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to 50,000 baht. Authorities urge employers to strictly adhere to the law to avoid severe consequences.

    The suspects have been handed over to Hua Hin Police Station for further legal proceedings.
