Thai tsunami survivors rebuild their lives

Tourist numbers rising once again but memories of 2004 disaster that destroyed Khao Lak resort remain painful.

    When the Asian tsunami hit Thailand in 2004, it decimated popular tourist resorts and killed thousands of locals and visitors, especially in Phuket.

    Now 10 years on, although the memories are still painful, the tourist numbers are finally rising again.

    Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa went back to Khao Lak, the resort town that bore the highest death toll.
