Rayong Upset Over The Exclusion From High Speed Train Project

Rayong is a low-key destination that has not been touched by mass tourism. However, you should never miss to visit the place when you are in Thailand because of the richness of foods and beautiful places. In close proximity to some of Thailand’s industrial parks is holiday inn in Rayong with its well-designed suites with a stunning gulf view.

Rayong is about two and a half hours to three hours away from Bangkok if you hire a car. A bus ride will take longer because it has to pass by different routes. Bangkok-Rayonghigh-speedtrain project is one of the vital developments that is expected to increase investor confidence in Thailand. Recently, there was a decision to exclude Rayong from the first phase of the high-speed train project because of safety concerns in the event that an accident happens at Map Tu Phat industrial estate.

The local chamber of commerce led by its president NoppadolTangsoncharoen and other groups in Rayong are campaigning to generate support for their petition to the government to revise the exclusion. Signatures are being collected from supporters to reach at least 10,000. The key bodies that are taking part in the campaign include Rayong’s commercial banks club, tourism business association and the industrial council.

The government committee that is overseeing the flagship Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) project decided that Rayong Station must be removed from the high-speed train project that will link Don Mueang, Suvarnabhumi U-Tapao airports. According to the committee, the Rayong station has a problem regarding the environmental impact assessment (EIA).

SinceRayong Station will no longer be included in the high-speed train project many residents are disappointed because they thought that their economy will improve. Rayong Governor SurasakCharoensirichote is looking forward to the petition because the government has made a promise to Rayong.

Meanwhile, Rayong remains as the peaceful getaway of urbanites who want to escape the crowded city of Bangkok. Booking can be made directly with the website of holiday inn in Rayong for the best price guarantee. There are also facilities available for meeting or conferences as well as other events like weddings.
