Krom Luang Chumphon Monument

Dedicated to the founder of the Thai navy

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

The monument is on a rocky headland at the northern most tip of Hat Sairee from where there is a great view of the nearby islands. It's dedicated to a local admiral with an incredibly long name who was the founder of the Thai Navy. At the foot of the hill a large naval torpedo boat, the Royal Chumphon, which was de-commissioned on 26 November 1975, has become a permanent attraction. The monument itself is quite striking, and the grounds are usually filled with patriotic Thai tourists. There's a huge pile of firecrackers that is lit daily--the pile smoulders for long periods until one of the strings of firecrackers goes off, delivering a sudden, deafening barrage.
