Khao Lak: Filming of “The Impossible” A Journey Back Into Tsunami 2004

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010


Naomi Watts along with Ewan McGregor star in the new Spanish film “The Impossible” currently filming in Khao Lak, Thailand. The Impossible is the terrifying account of a family unexpectedly caught with many others when a Tsunami flattens their three-story hotel and the surrounding landscape and how they had to struggle to survive after being pushed underwater into a quagmire of dislodged trees and debris where they were thrown upside-down, and battered by debris.

Operated by: Pascale Theng, Pascale Theng

We were most fortunate to find this lovely restaurant located directly across from our hotel in Khao Lak.  It is run by two charming individuals, Pascale Theng, a French national with considerable reinforcement from her German boyfriend Philipp Schüeller.  She has organized the kitchen to produce both classic French and authentic Vietnamese dishes as well as popular Thai selections. I highly recommend this restaurant as probably the best restaurant in town.
