Future Hoi An beyond the Ancient Town

[News: 3 May 2023] Rebuilding Cambodia’s gambling Mecca, Last batch of units for Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway shipped, Penang South Islands project gets Putrajaya’s final approval

Hello from Hua Hin! I was here last year and I said I would come back when the new railway station was open. It was meant to be finished by now, but I arrived last week and the new station is still a construction site. Maybe I will come back next year if/when it is open. Here is a list of Hua Hin projects that I compiled from my last visit.

This week I have a trip report from my recent stay in Hoi An, where there is more to this city than the ancient town.

I am also compiling a full list of projects from Da Nang to Hoi An, and I have made a fact sheet for a new urban area in Hoi An.
