Whilst in Khao Lak if you visit the Tsunami Memorial at Baan Nam Kem, about half an hour drive north of Khao Lak (see photos at khaolaklovers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=224 ) or go across to nearby Koh Kho Khao (see photos at http://photos.orange.co.uk/album/5357439 )
try to pay a visit to another poignant reminder of the Tsunami. These are the fishing boats Krisana Sakorn, The Blue Angel, and Sri Samut, The Demon. The site is tucked away just off the main road on your left as you approach the pier for the ferry to KKK. This is where they both finished up after being taken here by the wave on very different journeys with very different but, in the end, heartening conclusions.
Have a look at khaolaklovers.com/forum/viewtopic.php… for some photos together with the tale of each vessel's amazing journey.
