The memorial site is a powerful reminder of the damage caused by the Boxing Day Tsunami. A bit off the beaten path as most tourists opt for the museum instead, its definitely worth the trek. Free admission (donations accepted) you can walk around the huge ship which is currently resting on top of two houses. Its located in the middle of a neighborhood which adds to your appreciation of the damage struck. We walked around until an English speaking employee found us and offered to show us around. She told us stories and showed us pictures of the tsunami. Definitely worth a visit!

If you already visit the Tsunami Musem, this place is not necessary to visit if you not have a spare time. But, its worth to visited after all. :)

This ship is huge yet it was swept so far inland like a toy boat. This area was nicely preserved with boardwalks for visitors to appreciate the size of this event in relation to its surroundings. Come early morning to avoid the hot sun

Very big boat was trapped at one house, and that boat still there. You have to visit. This is one of the witnesses, the effect of tsunami in 2004

I assume from the pictures uploaded by the previous reviewer that this is the PLDT Agung generation ship which is an amazing sight to see and gives you an idea of the power of a tsunami. HOWEVER and when I was there, I think the park around it had just opened and I had to get the name that the locals call the place ("PLDT Agung," the ship's name) written down by the front desk of where I was staying in order to get a beka or tuk tuk to take me there (the drivers usually don't speak English).
