Hua Hin Events for wheelchairs

Held on Hua Hin Beach with wheelchair access.

From 10-12 June 2012 the next Hua Hin Jazz FEstival will take place. Where? Always on the beach in front of the Sofitel Hotel and in front of the Intercontinental Hotel. The sponsor is Heineken, the Dutch premium beer from The Netherlands.

You can access the beach using the ramps made for motorbikes and cars, but also for wheelchairs. With a little bit of help you pass easily the few meters soft sand till you reach the firm sand where you can drive independently your scoot or handbike.

Close to the beach we let our wheelchair accessible pool villa. This holiday home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and living room with computer and internet access.
This holiday accommodation can accommodate 6 adults and is still available during the Hua Hin Jazz Festival 2012.

Best Practices, Disabled parking in Hua Hin

Disabled Parking
Pranburi, feb. 2012.

The last few months I have been thinking of starting a new serie. Best Practices in Hua Hin and surrounding areas concerning accessibility.
We came across several disabled parking places, but always belonging to hotels or condominiums like Tira Tiraa. But yesterday I came accross the first disabled parking place near a public building.

This parking place is located on the parking lawn of the Pranburi Diver License Office. And yes it is wide enough, long enough and marked with a blue surface and a white wheelchair sign in it. The sign has a white wheelchair and "disabled parking" in Thai and English written.

Okay this is Pranburi and not Hua Hin. But good examples will be followed. So thank you Pranburi driver license office. We are very happy you include disabled people and provide them with accessible parking.

We do hope Hua Hin will follow this best practice of accessibility and make disabled parking places near the municipality, post office, banks, police stations, beaches, parks, shopping malls and so on.
