Historical Places of Interest
Nai Khai Ranong / First Governor of Ranong Mausoleum
Nai Khai Ranong, or the first governor’s former residence transformed into a shrine to honor the Khaw or Na Ranong family, who played an important role in the development of the tin industry in Ranong and Phuket. With a collection of mementos and ancestral figurines carved with the names of the deceased, the shrine is much respected by the local people of Ranong, in honour of Khaw Soo Cheang and his descendants.
Hilltop temple, marked with the beautiful giant reclining Buddha image along the Phetkasem Road called ‘Wat Bangnon’. Though conveniently located by the roadside, the temple is rarely visited by tourists, and has yet to be promoted as a tourist attraction.
A lively place where you can take a glimpse of the sea-faring life of Ranong. If you want to experience fisherman’s way of life, better get up early and go to Pak Nam Ranong or Fishing Pier. Here is where the Kraburi River meets Andaman Sea. Early in the morning, the pier is lively with boats loading and unloading their catch, then daily landed and auctioned here at the fish market. Fishermen and merchants bargain for fish, and trucks transport fresh seafood to various places.
