King Mongkut Memorial Park of Science and Technology
This Science Park was established at Wa Ko in 1989
to commemorate King Monkut (King Rama IV),
who is regarded as the Father of Thai Science Study.
In 1968 the King made a trip to Wa Ko to witness an eclipse
of the sun after his astronomical forecast.
The science museum has many sections for youth education,
an aquarium and a butterfly garden.
Lying some 5 kilometres south of the town,
this beautiful curved bay, was once a battlefield
between the Thai and Japanese armies during the Second World War.
It is now under the care of the Royal Thai Airforce.
Part of the beach is lined with souvenir stalls.
The remainder, and the greater part,
is tranquil and largely untouched by commercialism.
Khao Chong Krachok
From the foot of the hill in the north of the town,
up 395 steps, sits a highly revered monastery.
There is a small pagoda and a troop of playful monkeys.
The hill also offers a splendid panorama of the coastline and seascape.
