After almost 5 months’ work a Royal Pavilion is almost complete at the Chang Hua Man Royal Project. The building of the pavilion, initiated by the Royal Affairs Office, is designed by the director of Suan Nongnuch Pattaya Mr. Kamphol Tansatja who is also a world recognized garden and park architect. The project included landscape modification and planting more trees in the area. The royal pavilion position is on high ground allowing His Majesty to command views across the entire Royal Project. Gen. Daphong Rattanasuwan, the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, has recently visited the project area to monitor the work himself.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) has also opened a new nature trail in honour of His Majesty the King, for visitors to learn more about how ecosystems work in Thailand. General Daphong Rattanasuwan, the MONRE Minister, chaired the opening of the new nature trail as a project for ecosystem rehabilitation at Khao Krapuk-Khao Tao Mo, Tha Yang district in Phetchaburi. The Event was joined by the Governor of Phetchaburi Mr. Monthien Thongnit, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Office of the Royal Affairs Dr. Dissthorn Watcharothai, the Permanent Secretary of MONRE Mrs. Mingkhwan Wichayarasarit and the Director-General of the National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department Mr. Niphon Chotiban.
General Daphong said that, on the occasion of the 87th anniversary of His Majesty the King, all Thai people should express gratitude to him and realise how hard-working the King has been since his accession to the throne 68 years ago. MONRE, apart from organising festive events to celebrate the King’s birthday, provide support to all projects under the royal initiatives, particularly those related to national security, environmental conservation and poverty. The National Park Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department also introduced the new nature trail for those interested in wildlife and ecosystems in the area. The latest nature trail is different because it highlights the key features of the existing 6 learning centres for development. The new nature trail is adjacent to the Chang Hua Man Project. Along the trail are learning points set up under MONRE’s supervision.
