It's a statue for photo opportunity. It's impossible to miss if you want to go find it for a photo. Nice view of the waters very close by. There's a dolphin statue nearby as well.

Just a statue on the round about. Nothing stand out. But the boardwalk by the sea front is a good place to catch the sunset! This statue is also near some food stalls and the central market.

This statue is in a prominent part of town, overlooking the water. We used it as a landmark to orientate ourselves when we were in KK.

Situated in the middle of a busy roundabout near the waterfront and market. We dodged traffic to get some pictures. Worth visiting only if you're in the vicinity.

Just a normal statue in the middle of the round about. Cars are moving fast, you need to walk if wanted to photo taking.
