Officials in Hua Hin on Wednesday said they have already spent almost their entire 2013 budget meant to welcome "study trips" by administrative bodies from other provinces, showing charming Hua Hin is a prime destination for taxpayer-funded trips. 

Prachuap Khiri Khan municipality mayor Kriangkrai Kraithong said Hua Hin has welcomed many study tours this year, organised by members of municipalities, tambon administration organisations (TAO) and government agencies across the country.

Some 200,000 baht had been earmarked for organising and hosting banquets for such guests, but the province and its popular resort town had more visitors than expected, meaning the entertainment budget had shrunk to only 10,000 baht, with half the year still to go.
