  • The Tsunami (Ban Nam Khem Tsunami Memorial) memorial is located north of khao Lak, at the level of the mouth of Park Ko. A place where the beach has remote more than 300 meters, shaving the fishing port and fishing village. A memorial with several small temples, a showroom with pictures of the tragedy, a large seated Buddha and back to the sea and a large wave which comes crashing on the steles of the persons who died or disappeared. A place of rest and contemplation for the missing or deceased as a result of the 2004 Tsunami.

  • We wanted to let time do something on a rainy day and see us this Memorial and work history! Given by a German firm memory of an accident in which several thousand people perished. What is this is not a memory but will be forfeited and cleaner, it's a pity! Even the people who work there run past the garbage, the wall with pictures and names expires! Incredible

  • One should visit to remember the lives lost... and devastation the Tsunami caused...
  • A memorial park to those lost in the tsunami in 2004, okej to visit just to say you've been there. There is really no activity there, a small restaurant, some food and snacks stands, a toilet and a small gallery with photos related to the disaster. Directions: To get there ride your motorbike towards Takua Pa and take a left by the Police kiosk in Ban Bang Nuang and after that follow the signs.
  • Quiet local place, with the highlights of tsunami memorial, long Beach and small local restaurant.
  • well-designed but not well maintained
  • Nicely kept area. Certainly can understand how the tsunami did so much damage as the area is very low. On our visit, despite it not having rained a lot, we found the road to and the memorial flooded.

Where to stay in Takua Pa

Takua Pa offers a few good options for overnight stays, though visitors tend not to do this unless absolutely necessary. You can rent air-conditioned, clean, no-frills rooms in the heart of town in midrange and economy lodgings. Do bring a phrasebook, as staff in a lot of places will speak minimal English. Head to the more heavily touristed environs of nearby Khao Lak for a wider range of choices to suit different needs.
