New tourist attraction destroyed just days before opening


Fire broke out at a soon to be opened tourist attraction on Pattaya central road on the morning of October the 9th causing more than 20 million baht in losses.

Six fire engines along with the Sawang Boriboon officers and a team of doctors from the Banglamung Hospital rushed to the Miniature Thai Royal Barge Performance center which is a 2 storey building with the fire raging through the 4-D Royal Cinema Hall on the 2nd floor.

The owner gives his statement to the police.

It took approximately 2 hours before the fire was under control and in that time the cinema was completely destroyed.

The owner of the museum Mr. Sumet Choksuriyaket stated that the building was in the final stages of construction and was due to open on the 14th of October.

The police believe that a short circuit was to blame for the outbreak of the fire, however they will coordinate with the forensic officers from Region 2 to get a more detailed picture of what actually happened.
