Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has asked the Tourism and Sports Ministry to propose a “Riviera Thailand” project during a Cabinet retreat in Phetchaburi on Tuesday.

Tourism and Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat said on Monday that Somkid wanted the project to boost tourism on the Andaman coast of Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon and Ranong.

Weerasak said Somkid had noticed that Thai holidaymakers, especially those from Bangkok, always visited the seaside tourist spots on the Gulf of Thailand to the east of the country without paying attention to the Andaman Sea on the western side.

The Rivera Thailand project would boost tourism to communities along the Andaman coast, Weerasak added.
