Laem Pak Bia is a Royal Project initiative of King Rama IX who showed a great interest in environmental issues, especially the problem of polluted water and garbage. His Highness emphasised the use of natural methods, helping nature with simple technology and using locally available materials.
The Royal Project focuses on research and development ith a wastewater plant able to be used by the Phetchaburi Municipality before the methods can be expanded to other communities and localities.
Laem Phak Bia is a coastal area in Ban Laem District of Phetchaburi Province. The shore is a large, open area of mudflats and salt pans, with some mangrove areas and scrub, tipped by a sand spit. This is a favoured location for bird-watchers where they can see a wide variety of shorebirds.
