The Ministry of Transport will allow tourists to take a ferry boat trip between Pattaya and Hua Hin for free as a New Year gift.
The Marine Department will carry out test runs of the ferry on December 30th and 31st to ensure its safety and the readiness of the piers and other facilities. The ferry service will be available to passengers free of charge from January 1st to 15th. It will start charging 1,250 baht per passenger when it is officially opened to the public after the trial period.
Two ferry services will be available each day. The first one will leave Hua Hin at 8.30 am on the 113-kilometer journey and will take approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes to reach Pattaya. The second trip will leave Pattaya at 3.30 pm for Hua Hin. The ferry can carry a maximum of 150 passengers on each trip.
In the initial phase, there will be only one ferry whereas a second ferry will be added to the service in March 2017. The total capacity of the additional ferry is 260 passengers.
