    The ban Nam Khem reminiscent of tsunami Memorial in an impressive manner the many, to the tsunami (December), deceased people. The panels embedded in the walls remind of single these people. Here, it is also clear that it has met people from all over the world and some even very young children. The entire Memorial is very interesting insight is how bad the tsunami 2004 hit the West Coast. The Memorial is worth a visit in any case.

    Was told about this site by our hotel manager and decided to go the very same day after hearing about the local tsunami history. The locals were very nice, and welcoming. Paid our respects at the memo...  more »

    Very nice site in honor of the 5600 people who died on December 26, 2004... What is unfortunate is that the plates are already very damaged

    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.

    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.

    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.
