Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa teamed up with several leading hotels and resorts in Hua Hin to teach Thai schoolchildren about the importance of motorcycle safety – and specifically, wearing a helmet.

The hotel’s associates joined a major CSR activity at the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, during which hundreds of kids from local schools were equipped with motorbike helmets. Almost 400 children attended the event from three schools in and around Hua Hin: Ban Smor Prong School, Nong Kae School and BoFai School. They enjoyed a series of fun activities, including painting their new helmets, while also learning about the critical issue of road safety.

This annual CSR event was supported by the local government, led by Bussaba Chokesuchat, Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin municipality, Sommai Sooksai, Director of Hua Hin Educational Department, officers from the Hua Hin traffic police and officers from tourist police. This marks the third consecutive year for this important event, as Hua Hin’s hotel community comes together once again to improve the safety of its children, many of whom are risking their lives each day simply by travelling to and from school without a helmet on a motorbike.
