International Tsunami Museum reviews
When visiting Khao Lak, one cannot forget how devastated the destination was by the 2004 Tsunami and the many people who sadly perished. As a respect to the victims, we wanted to visit this so called.... more »
Very interesting to see the boat that was washed up so far in land from the tsunami. You can see the memorial statue between the farang bakery and miss miracle salon. Khao Laks only real landmark so..... more »
We were at a similar memorial on Sri Lanka. Basically, it is the same. I feel for the people who have lost someone, their homes, and the misery they went through. I’m not sure though, if this is the best way to make tourists aware of this disaster. The entire thing didn’t feel exactly right, but somehow, you do have to visit when you’re there. If you come here in the evening, the boat is not lighted. So, you don’t really see it that well. The boat was carried by the waves from the water all the way to its current position on the land. Quite a distance.
Was a very nice and upsetting place to visit and just see how devastating natural disasters are
