"Racha Prapa Dam; Surat Thani" Surat Thani by sunnythai

Surat Thani Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 60 photos

Racha Prapa Dam or Chiew-Lann Damn is situated at Ban Ta Kune district, 70 Kilometers away from Surat Thani by high way 401 heading to Ta Kua Pha.

The dam is 185 sq.km. Annually, it produces electricity about 554 million kilowatt an hour. It is built in February, 1982.

If you are a morning person, you can cruise around the damn and enjoy what I have seen. I cannot illustrate how beautiful it is by words. Let the pictures tell you then?

If you are NOT a morning person, be one!!

    Impressive scenery! I've heard the road from Takua Pa to Surat Thani is very scenic as well. Did you stay in those floating bungalows? How were they? Thanks, -Paul
