Abstract (in English)

The international recognition on ‘setting’ has been clearly seen for years. ‘Setting’ is the physical environment of a historic property. It illustrates the relationship between cultural heritage and its surrounding as well as how it is situated. The attention on the setting rose when cultural landscape was taken into the World Heritage Convention in the end of last century. In Thailand, the safeguarding of ‘setting’ has been taken into account since Thai Government realized that many monuments in urban and rural areas were under the threat from the changes of its surrounding both in physical and socio-cultural dimensions. Nowadays, the consideration on the setting of cultural heritage is increasing. Recently, there was cooperation between Thai Government and Danish Government to establish the Cultural Environment Conservation System. The success of this project could bring more attention to the setting of cultural heritage conservation in the long run.
