Thap Sakae wooden jetty to re-open as a tourist attraction
Every year before the high season commences, the government sets out to discuss and apply new ideas in order to better and increase tourism in Thailand. Among some of these discussions and ideas, was the announcement that the Thap Sakae wooden fishing jetty would be closed for renovations to improve the overall experience. Those among the panel of decision-makers were Mrs. Eumporn Tangtong, a former member of Prachuap Khiri Khan Provincial Administration at Thap Sakae District, and the head of the Thap Sakae.
This Thap Sakae wooden jetty is said to be the oldest structure of this specific kind on the central western Gulf of Thailand and acts as a tourist attraction for aspiring photographers and nature enthusiasts. The jetty was handed over to the Thap Sakae Administration by the Harbor Department but found it difficult to procure funding for the renovations. Different public organizations and groups combined forces in order to expand the efforts and speed up the renovation process as well as procure the materials needed. Armed with the necessary financial resources they plan to re-open the pier to visitors, ensuring that this traditional fishing jetty will be an ongoing tourist attraction.
In order to save the authentic appearance of the pier, natural materials will be used during the renovations, including a nine-meter pine tree which will be the main feature of the structure.
When the renovation process of the Thap Sakae wooden jetty is complete, visitors can enjoy walking along the pier as they admire the ocean vistas and feel the soft breeze coming off the water.
