Topic: New shopping plaza in Ao Nang

Just what Ao Nang needs: more retail space.

Directly opposite the mostly empty lots next to McDonald's, where once stood P.S. Handicrafts and the Swedish 'Absolut' Restaurant (now completely destroyed), is the site for a new enterprise: Sea of Love Plaza.

The sign next to the construction site shows them renting 20sqm lots from 140,000 Baht per year - fairly cheap for Ao Nang:

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago, when the land was still being cleared - the construction team has now arrived and building is under way.

Absolut Restaurant has changed names (to Blue Mango) and will be re-opening in the old sports shop opposite the entrance to Krabi Resort in late October.
