Impacts of climate change and human interventions on coastal landscape have prompted local communities to preserve their cultural heritage as an emblem of local identity. This paper investigatesan adaptive response of local people to the conservation of cultural monuments affected by coastal inundation and shoreline retreat of the upper Gulf of Thailand. Though conservation measures demonstrate formal and structural alterations of monuments and sites, the cultural and social attachments between communities and monuments are still maintained.
