The Phuket News Poll
Should Thailand build the Kra Canal?
Yes – the time is now, start building it.
The Phuket News
Yes – but only if approved via a full feasibility study and a full Environmental Impact Assessment, including public approval and feedback meetings, is conducted by a respected independent organisation.
The Phuket News
Not yet – growth in global shipping dictates that the Kra Canal will be needed sometime in the future, but not just yet.
The Phuket News
No – the entire project is a waste of taxpayer’s money and endangers the environment and tourism to the Andaman region.
