  • Place memory, this memorial is conducive to meditation. Several plaques bearing the identity of the missing are presented with photos.

  • The plant is very unkempt. It is sad, depressing and satisfies the numerous victims in any way.

  • A beautiful site with a tiny museum and a Buddha statue directlly at the seaside was built here (financed by employes and the german company Thyssen Krupp) to give the local people a place to remember and maybe digest what happend in the past. There are small foodstalls here as well as public toilets. Beautiful view to Koh Koh Khao.
  • 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.
  • Memorable place for Tsunami inThailand
  • 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.
