Bt20m for tourism improvements in Rassada

RASSADA, PHUKET: In a recent meeting, Rassada Municipality agreed to allocate almost Bt20 million to improve landscaping and build new facilities near the causeway leading to Koh Sireh, in a bid to promote tourism and improve the quality of life for local people.

The work will take place near the Malikaew embankment in the Koh Sireh community in Rassada Village 7.

Rassada Mayor Surathin Lienudom said the office has set aside Bt19.3 million to carry out the project, which includes construction of a car park, sidewalks, lighting, water supply and public toilets to serve tourists.

The earthen dam, 630 meters long, will have flowers planted along its bank.

The area is already a popular stopping point for motorists on their way to Koh Sireh due to the presence of a colony of crab-eating macaque monkeys that inhabit the mangrove forest in the area.

Mayor Surathin, who recently stepped down as manager of the Phuket FC football team, expects the construction to be completed by the end of the year.
