Phang Nga –
A tour boat with 42 tourists from Phuket became stuck on a sandbank in Phang Nga.
The head of the Ao Phang Nga National Park, Mr. Nattawat Nuisringam, told the Phuket Express that earlier this week they helped a tour boat that became stuck on a sandbank between Takeng Hill and Nom Sao Hill when it was low tide.
The boat was traveling from Phuket with 42 foreign tourists. They were traveling to the Hat Nopparat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park in Krabi and Ao Phang Nga National Park.
Boat crews and foreign tourists were trying to push the boat off the bank for half an hour but failed. National Park staffers finally pushed the boat from the sandbank.
There were no injuries from the incident but several tourists were irritated at the delay to their tour schedule.
