Only one monument to see. Really, a really nice gesture to commemorate the victims of the tsunami. But I can not powiedzić that this is the place for which it is worth to go.

The memorial is located at a strategic chokepoint between Rim Hat Road and Kamala Beach, one of the areas worst hit by the 2004 tsunami. However it is unkempt and more often than not, goes unnoticed by the scantily-dressed crowds that pass by the memorial....More

This memorial is matched by others along the Western coast, including a good sombre one in Khao Lak. Unfortunately the Plaza is currently affected by the large amount of construction going on in the beach area, however it is most definitely worth the visit.

Which we had, or more accurately, we didn’t realise that the big wave had hit Thailand right in that spot. We’d walked past this abstract art piece a couple of times going down to the beach for a swim before looking at the plaque. A...More

Of the tragic boxing day in 2004 when so many people lost their lives. Kamala has rebuilt it's life but the sadness and sorrow still lingers on with the families who lost their loved ones

This memorial has just been left to rot, over grown around it, cracked brickwork, it just looked in a sorry state, however it was a nice gesture for a memorial.

Park is not well maintained but the memorial sculpture is stunning. The depiction of the spreading waves is quite moving standing where so many were swept away. .
