This is located at Tambon Bang Pu Mai, about Kilometres 37 from Bangkok on Sukhumvit
Road, opposite the Bang Pu Industrial Estate. It has long been famous for its seaside
resort and also the recuperation centre, and generally associated with relaxation.
It is operated by the Quartermaster Generals Department. Inside the compound, there
are many gardens and a lot of trees and plants. Restaurants and bungalows are also
available. Early evening is the best time for visitors to see a beautiful sunset
as you look out across the Gulf of Thailand. Between October and February, the flocks
of seagulls always migrate to the pier area and it is the popular place to take photographs.

hours after the attack on Pearl Harbour, Japanese forces began landing in Thailand.
The 5th Division, 25th Army, landed at the cities of Pattani and Songkhla and on
the island of Koh Samui in southern Thailand.
The Guards Division, 25th Army, landed small elements at Samut Prakan at the mouth
of the Chao Phraya River south of Bangkok. The bulk of the Guards Division entered
the country overland from Cambodia at the town of Aranyaprathet.
