Abstract

The aim of the proposed guidelines for the conservation of cultural heritage buildings for tourism development is to seek answers for the following: “What is the statement of significance of the vernacular shophouses along Sue Suk Road, Prachuabkirikhan?” and “How to conserve the vernacular architecture in this area?” This paper portrays the Cultural Heritage Building guidelines with regard to locally appropriate tourism development and conservation. The guidelines contain examples of the adaptive use of shophouse architecture and its integration into the tourism scheme, as well as recommendations regarding the improvement of facilities within the setting.
