This noteworthy event garnered the presence of distinguished figures, including Maj. Gen. Awut Phutthi-amnuay, Commander of the Infantry Center at Thanarat Camp; Ms. Sureeporn Phongphanit, Director of the Central Market Division; and various representatives from the Central Regional District, TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand), and General Krit Puangwalaisin, Chief of Hua Hin District.

The primary objective of this event was two-fold. Firstly, it sought to showcase the natural splendor and historical significance of the region while promoting tourism within military camps. The 50-kilometer cycling route, commencing at Rajabhakti Park and concluding at Tha Sadet in Thanarat Camp, offered participants a breathtaking journey. The route was lined with verdant landscapes and towering ancient trees, making it an ideal destination for both nature enthusiasts and history buffs.
Major Adisak Noisuwan, Acting Governor of Prachuap Province, emphasized the importance of promoting eco-friendly tourism through cycling, a globally popular form of sustainable travel.

He highlighted that the event was a collaborative effort between the government and the private sector, aimed at advancing sports tourism in the Prachuap Province.
Furthermore, Tha Sadet in Thanarat Camp, the event’s final destination, is a hidden gem that boasts natural beauty and historical significance. It was a favored resting place for His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great, Borommanat Bophit, and the Royal Family, lending it great historical value. Major Adisak Noisuwan stressed the importance of raising awareness about this invaluable tourist attraction, ensuring it is accessible to the wider public.
