At La Vela Khao Lak Hotel on Bang Niang Beach, in Khuk Khak subdistrict, Phang Nga province, Phang Nga Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada welcomed the first tourist couple visiting under the Phuket Sandbox project.

The couple stayed in Phuket for 14 days before traveling to Khao Lak, Phang Nga. They were welcomed with a Tom-Tom parade and were granted garlands and souvenirs from the Tourism Authority of Thailand. They also joined a group photo session before checking into their hotel.

The British couple, listed only as Mr and Mrs Cullen, was among the first batch of foreign tourists who arrived in Phuket on July 1 and booked a stay in Khao Lak from July 16-25.

Once their stay there finishes they will return to Phuket before flying back to England.
