Six projects in environmental and tourism development will be funded with a total expenditure of 338.8 million baht. Thailand’s cabinet approved a 9 billion baht budget for comparable development initiatives in the Andaman last year. The initiative focused on reviving the region’s tourism industry, which had been devastated by Covid-19 limitations. It was primarily concerned with promoting economic development and social programs.

At Lipe Island in Satun, a budget of 80.8 million baht will be allocated to health services and environmental system projects. The conservation and rehabilitation of dugong and other wildlife centers in Trang will be funded with a budget of 68.8 million baht. The Phuket Health Sandbox, which aims to unite health services across the region under one system, would get a budget of 25.3 million baht.



The sandbox is envisioned as a key component of the region’s health tourism. Thailand’s government has designated the Andaman provinces of Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, Trang, and Satun as a priority for development.


Phang Nga will obtain an 80 million baht funding for a tourism and coastal activities center. The port and tourism development in Krabi, as well as the development of Krabi’s Ji Lard Canal, will be funded with 35 million baht. The development of herbal onsen and hot springs tourism in Krabi’s Khlong Thom district will be funded with 49 million baht.
