Long Description:
Phang-nga ("Pung-narr") is a pleasant, small town, capital of the province of the same name, situated immediately to the north of that international hedonistic destination, Phuket Island. The town has few tourists, therefore a relaxing spot.

Along the main street is 'Phang-nga Technical College'. I stopped here to have a chat to the staff and to see what was happening. I ended up spending an hour talking to one of the delightful female staff, and her two female students. Delightful.

The school was founded twenty two years ago. It teaches primarily education, but also business, tourism and some actual technical courses (sound engineering and so forth). Students come largely from the local area. It has that small college, small town feel. Not a bureaucratic degree machine.

I found the campus to be well maintained, with a range of facilities, and the staff and students were friendly and helpful. A great place to visit.
