The village that was swallowed by the sea

Samut Prakan province,Thailand

Just an hour's drive south of the Thai capital Bangkok , the small coastal village of Khun Samutchine is facing a daily battle with the sea.The village is suffering from the effects of severe coastal erosion: the sea comes in at a rate of approximately 25 metres a year. Environmentalists say the erosion experienced in the area is probably some of the worst in the world.
