    The imaginarium of pandanus

    B Magazine, Normita Thongtham, Published on 16/03/2014

    ยป Pandanus tectorius, commonly known as screw pine or beach pandan (toey talay in Thai), has become the iconic symbol of Kamala Beach in Kathu district, western Phuket. Lining the beach alongside casuarina trees, their strong prop roots have held the sand in place and kept erosion at bay since Kamala was established as a popular beach resort in the 1970s. The tree also enjoyed pride of place in the beautifully landscaped garden of an exclusive condominium on the beachfront, until the property owners decided that its roots had become too ugly and obtrusive, and had it removed. Now they are in a dilemma over what to replace it with.
