The government plans to build a new pier in Phuket province to help improve its tourist facilities.

The pier, on Po Bay will cost Bt 140-million to construct, a senior Phuket provincial official, Anchalee Wanichthepphabutr. It will be 500-metres long and seven metres wide with a pavilion in the middle of it.

The local authorities hope the new pier will help boost the number of tourists visiting Po Bay to more than a thousand a day when it is completed in 2007.

Po Bay is a hub for eco-tourism. It is also a stopover site for tourists heading to other islands and marine tourist spots off Phang Nga and Krabi provinces.

Eco-tourism will remain a highlight of Po Bay, Ms/Mrs Anchalee said, as that is what the local residents around the bay want.
