Long Description:
Phang-nga is a small city, capital of the Thai province of the same name, in southern Thailand. As far as I could determine, there is only one fountain in the city, however, it is an impressive fountain.

This fountain is situated at a major traffic intersection, at the southern end of the city, in the government precinct of the town and province. It is approximately 10 metres in diameter and consists of a central area with water jets, a pool surrounding this, and on the perimeter statues of attractive female religious figures. I suspect that the pool is not fully functional, as it looks to me as if the female figures were intended to pour water into small pools, but this feature is not in operation.

The inscription on the base states, that the fountain was constructed in honour of the King of Thailand's 80th birthday. The inscription also states that at this time the King had reigned for 60 years. The problem being that these dates do not match. Something was lost in translation.

The fountain is easily spotted on the main road, leading into town from the south.
