It’s a nice monument to look at if you are around. Easy to walk past. Doesn’t say how many people died so could be more informative.

Actually just a small area by the beach - not a lot to see but still worth passing by and taking a picture

Only one monument to see. Really, a really nice gesture to commemorate the victims of the tsunami. But I can not powiedzić that this is the place for which it is worth to go.

This memorial is matched by others along the Western coast, including a good sombre one in Khao Lak. Unfortunately the Plaza is currently affected by the large amount of construction going on in the beach area, however it is most definitely worth the visit.

You can't miss it if you travel in Kamala or Surin. This sculpture is close to the main wonderful beach. It reminds the disaster, with a board explaining the history and the consequences. To not be missed. We would give 5 stars if the surrounding...More

A timely reminder of the devastation the area but not maintained to a standard that would be considered acceptable. The sculpture is really impressive but that's it..... there was grass overgrowing, rubbish and the whole place is unkept - which is similar to the beach...More

This is such a beautiful and well crafted sculpture to remember those that lost their lives here in Kamala. It is such a shame that is is next to the open sewage river and in a filthy park which is not maintained well at all....More

Of the tragic boxing day in 2004 when so many people lost their lives. Kamala has rebuilt it's life but the sadness and sorrow still lingers on with the families who lost their loved ones
