Nai Kai Ranong Thailand

Ranong's leading historical figure was a wealthy Fukien Chinese immigrant, Koh Su Chiang, who served as regional tax collector during the reign of King Rama V and was later appointed the first governor of Ranong Province. The Koh family played an important role in the development of the tin industry on Phuket. The governor's former residence, located on the northern edge of town, honors the Koh family with a collection of mementos and ancestor figurines carved with the names of the deceased.

The mausoleum and graveyard of the Koh family are three km north of town on Chao Rakathong hill. The primary tomb is approached on a grassy walkway flanked by eight stone sculptures imported from China in the 19th century..
