Khao Lak Tsunami Memorial

Police patrol boat 813 lies about 1.2km inland from the Andaman Sea off the coast of Bang Niang beach, Khao Lak. On December 26th 2004, it was carried there from it's anchorage offshore by the tsunami that killed more than 5000 people in Thailand and more than 250,000 in the Indian Ocean region. The boat was left in place as a reminder. A museum is now being built there, should be open and ready for the 10th anniversary of the tsunami. More info on the Phuket blog ...
