Mystery of abandoned "tourist center" in south Thailand

Locals called in the Thai media after they reported that a near 5 million baht tourist center had become derelict in the Phangnga area. 

 

The building on Petchkasem Road in Thay Meuang district is shaped like a turtle's back. 

 

But the roof has holes in it and the walls are in a terrible state of disrepair. 

 

A sign suggests it was built at a cost of 4,897,000 baht between July 2017 and February of last year. It is described as a tourist centre and a place for the distribution of local products.

Ratchanok, 38, told Daily News that she has no idea whose responsibility it is or who owns it. It has just been left to rot. 

 

Her neighbors were cutting the grass but she wanted the owners to do something about the building.

I think the owner spent 50,000 baht on the building and has absconded to live a happy life with the balance of 4,950,000 baht!!!

ok the 4.9 mll went into somebody's pocket... they should check who in the neighborhood at that time bought a new car/truck
