For me the most moving factor was the Buddha turning his back towards the sea. As he is protecting the people against the threats from the ocean. Had a quiet walk on the beach. Thougths with all the people that lost their loved ones.

Enjoyed walking around this memorial park and viewing the giant statue with her back to the ocean. The memorial wave wall was also very reflective. As no information we did leave with many questions but appreciate the Thai people’s desire to move on and not make a tourist attraction of this devastating event.

It's not massive but big enough to get around with a struggle if using walking sticks. It was sad seeing the photos and even more so the wall of remerance. The big Buddha was was great to see as an act of what looks to me like watching over everyone

Since the first time we visited in 2014 there has been an addition to the park. A lady has set up a small television set with a few chairs in front of it and it plays actual footage of the tsunami as it struck the different place it impacted.There does not seem to be an entrance fee but rather a donation jar in the front.I think my wife and I put 50 baht in each.It was well worth a look.

It was interesting to see how much damage and destruction the tsunami caused and how far the water ingressed inland, there are fishing boats 3 km inland from the beach, there is a memorial wall that lists the names of the people who were lost or killed in this disaster, terribly tragic but it is well worth seeing.

rode on scooter from beyond resort about 20 clicks, stop at the old town and was fortunate to run into a tourist policeman on a bike he escorted us there fantastic would not have found it on my own. It is a sobering reminder of what happened in 2004 and how the place is trying to carry on. What a resilient community, spent time with a local there and he told me how many of his friends perished and what has been been put in place should such a tragic event like this return. You must remember they didn't even have a clue what a tsunami or an earthquake was, and what was happening when the tide receded 4 km in 15 min. Buy a drink from the old boys in the carpark it will make their day. A little means a lot here

Great site to visit to re-voke the memory of the Tsunami that happened in 2004. The site is safe to visit with good facilities to walk or ride a bike or by car/bus

I have given this place 5 stars only for the people there and those who should be remembered.

The Thai government should be ASHAMED at the state of not only this memorial, but the policeboat memorial in Khao Lak.

We have recently been to 9/11 area of names York, the Thai government should maybe take a look at how others remember their people.

15 years after the biggest tragedy to hit this part of the country and these memorials are in shockingly poor condition.

Our highlight ( not in a pleasant but respectful way) of the day was chatting to a local ice cream man who lost his young son in the tragedy.

Thailand please sort yourself out and tidy up these memorials.

The memorial wall appears to be sadly neglected, the museum is small but informative. We expected more since this was such an tragic event and so many lives were loss. I experienced a strong feeling of respect and sadness and would have liked a place to sit and contemplate however there are no garden and no bench. If you are in the vicinity it is worth a visit but do not expect much.
