This is Phuravarna.. The Abandoned Retreat

Some of you may know I have a love of exploring old abandoned and unfinished buildings.

This video is dedicated to my new explorer friend Celeste Hanson, who without her knowledge of this place I would never have found.

I can see that it would have made a beautiful calm, peaceful and relaxing retreat in the Island of Phuket. Sadly it seems that it either ran out of money or possible investors. either way it stands as an example of what could have been. You will see what I mean when you watch it!

It was an idea to build the resort with villas…the owner was playing dirty with investors so they pulled off investments…that was around ten years ago…I believe that this property still has some serious legal issues

Unfinished Phuket Provincial Hall

This incomplete government offices stand on ground located on Thakreng Rd, near Rama IX Park, in Chalong Phuket.

Interestingly the Car park is completely finished and beautiful, but sadly inaccessible by vehicles as the road to it has not been finished either. There is also an event hall next door, also complete and used by government officers.

After the new Provincial Hall is complete it will become home to over a dozen of official agencies, including the Provincial Labour Office and the Provincial Governor's Office. The current Phuket Provincial Hall on Narisorn Rd will be converted into a museum.

The new Phuket Provincial Hall will be big enough to provide seats to some 1000 clerks. The administrative complex will have 295 indoor and 25 outdoor parking spaces for cars, 2 parking spaces for buses and 200 slots for motorbikes.
