Family begins demolition of Baan Pa Ngam resort in Thai National Park

Family begins demolition of Baan Pa Ngam resort in Thai National Park
After a decade-long legal battle, owners of the 125-rai Baan Pa Ngam mountain lodge in Prachin Buri's Na Di district, which was deemed to be illegally built in Thap Lan National Park, held a "farewell" press conference - before starting to demolish the premises.

THAILAND - The resort is well known as a place for young couples to hold wedding parties.

It has also done adventure-themed marriage registrations, in which couples hang on ropes from a cliff on Valentine's Day.

Resort manager Nakorn Wutthikanakorn and the Wutthikanakorn family issued a statement yesterday saying that the lodge had operated until Saturday but demolition work by 10 workers and a backhoe would commence yesterday.

The family said demolishing the resort was for a better solution for all sides, and they would start with the power generator building first and move all furniture to a new adventure-themed resort - possibly in Nakhon Ratchasima's Pak Chong district, Ratchaburi's Suan Pheung district or Min Buri in Bangkok.

The Bt160 million (S$6.3 million) resort, established in 1998, was due to be demolished on October 27, because it is located in the national park.
