Boat 813

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.
