Hua Hin has for a number of years attracted Scandinavian tourists in general and Sweeds in particular. Apart from the traditional charter tourism in Hua Hin an established part of the city is now also all the villa areas where Swedish families has invested in a house in order to be able to spend more of their time in this part of the world. In order to meet up with the growing Scandinavian population and their needs for an education which corresponds with the Swedish curriculum a new Swedish school is being established in the autumn of 2012.
The school in Hua Hin is being set up by Sanuk- the Swedish school of Thailand. Sanuk was the first Swedish school to establish in Thailand in 2004 on the island of Koh Lanta and in January 2011 a second school was established in the tropical paradise of Huay Yang.
Sanuk schools offer Scandinavians in general and Swedish families in particular the service of preschool and school and they also have their own Childclub for tourists visiting Thailand. The schools are open for families that stay in Thailand for a period of 4 weeks and up to several years.
Patrik, one of the school owners says
“The schools follow the Swedish curriculum and only work with educated and experienced teachers in very small groups with no more than up to about 10 children in each class. The quality school service that we offer has been very well received and appreciated by the families in both Koh Lanta and Huay Yang. Since Hua Hin is a very popular area for Swedish families it feels natural for us to establish a school there in order to offer all Scandinavians in the area the service of a high quality Swedish education.”
