The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami: Tourism Impacts and Recovery Progress in Thailand's Marine National Parks
Oregon State University, 2006 - 330 pages
Direct and indirect tsunami impacts to the business community were judged to have the most significant effects on tourism, followed by the direct impacts of the tsunami on the built environment and associated infrastructure. Social, health and safety impacts and impacts to natural resources and ecosystems were of lesser importance to the park tourism. However, recovery actions taken to rebuild infrastructure and park-serving facilities inside and outside park boundaries were judged most effective at helping to get park tourism back on its feet; tourism recovery actions associated with natural resources, the business community, and social services were judged to be only moderately effective. Numerous barriers and constraints to marine park tourism recovery were identified, some natural, but most human-caused.
