Lonely Planet review
The King Mongkut Memorial Park of Science & Technology , is at Hat Wa Kaw, a pleasant casuarina-lined beach, around 9km south of Ao Manao. It commemorates the 1868 solar eclipse that the king and his 15-year-old son Prince Chulalongkorn came south to witness. Unfortunately, not much is translated into English, but there is a good aquarium.
