With information panels and exhibits, the museum tells a desperately sad tale in a simple fashion.

Where to stay in Khao Lak

Expect to find apartment and resort-style places to stay in Khao Lak. Beachside options charge relatively steep rates for views of Thailand's west coast and the sea, though you can also find less pricey self-service villas and apartment complexes in several areas along the shore. For budget hostels and hotels, look along Phetkasem Road, the main arterial road in Khao Lak.
