Boat 813 information
Lonely Planet review
Perched in an open field nearly 1km from shore, this boat was hurled to its current location by the powerful 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. A decade later, it remains the region’s most prominent reminder of the disaster.
There’s a regal monument-worthy entryway, an information booth nearby with a tsunami timeline in both Thai and English, as well as some compelling photo books for sale. It’s just a 50B sŏrng·tăa·ou ride between here and Khao Lak.
