[video below] The Hua Hin Vintage Car Parade returns to the royal resort this coming weekend with all its usual glamour and panache. Organised by the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas, Hua Hin on behalf of the Hua Hin Hotelier’s Club and Vintage Car Club of Thailand with the support of the Tourism Authority of Thailand and Hua Hin Municipality, the resort’s top event will be held 18 - 20 December 2009.

The three-day rally brings together the country’s passionate collectors for a stunning display of vintage cars. The aim of the rally is to raise awareness of Hua Hin as a destination, increase product and brand loyalty to communities in Thailand and abroad, and give the public a chance to view the vintage cars. The rally also marks the auspicious occasion of the 100th anniversary of Hua Hin.

As usual, this year part of the proceeds generated from the event will be donated to the Chaipattana Foundation. Initiated by His Majesty King Bhumibhol of Thailand, the Chaipattana Foundation is renowned for projects dedicated to improving quality of life and self-reliance.

This year, the Hua Hin Vintage Car Parade features a fun-filled programme of activities and fine dining, most of which will take place at the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas, Hua Hin.

Fifty vintage cars will take part in the parade which will also feature period costumes, a 50-metre-long buffet, and a fabulous gala dinner.

Participants will assemble at the Centara Grand at Central World Bangkok on Friday 18th December 2009 at 7.00 am. The vehicles will then leave the hotel at 8 am. to embark on a 225-kilometre journey to the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas, Hua Hin.

En-route, there will be stops at King Rama II Park in Samutsongkram for sightseeing and a morning coffee break before proceeding to Kaeng Kracharn in Phetchburi for lunch. The afternoon will include breaks for refreshment at Alila Resort in Cha-Am and the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa before finally arriving at the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin at 5.00 pm.

Now in its 7th year, the Vintage Car Rally will feature a welcome dinner at Market Village with a 50-metre-long buffet of 100 dishes cooked by chefs from the five-star member hotels of the Hua Hin Hotelier’s Club. Live entertainment will compliment the evening’s dining. The dinner is also open to the public at Baht 250 net per person. All proceeds generated from this activity will be donated to Chaipattana Foundation.

On Saturday 19th December, the vintage car parade will drive to Sirinart Rachinee Mangrove Ecosystem Learning Centre in Pranburi for lunch and sightseeing.

After the Sirinart Rachinee Centre visit, the parade will return to the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas, Hua Hin. The public can then enjoy a ride in a rare vintage car for 250 baht per trip, with all money raised going to charity. This event will take place from 2.00 pm until 4.00 pm. Again, all the proceeds generated from ticket sales will be donated to the Chaipattana Foundation.

Around 5.30 pm on the 19th of December, the Vintage Car Parade will tour Hua Hin. All participants will dress up in period Thai costume to mark the 100th anniversary of Hua Hin.

After returning to the hotel, participants will join a cocktail reception in the Elephant Garden during the evening before proceeding to the gala dinner, where they will be able to enjoy a gourmet buffet and entertainment. The theme for this dinner will be the Grand Hua Hin Night Market, serving authentic Thai food, a live band, charity auctions, lucky draws with chances to win room packages to stay at various Accor and Centara hotels, and a period costume competition. Tickets for the gala dinner are priced at Baht 2,000 net per person.
