The famous Golden Mermaid

They called it the Golden Mermaid but actually it is made from bronze. One of the main attractions in Songkhla. Located on the Samila Beach or Pantai Bismillah in Malay language.

This beach is very beautiful with a famous mermaid statue in it. There is no shop but you can buy some souvenirs from the street vendors. You can also have a horse ride there. It is located in the province of Songkhla and took about 20-30 minutes from Hat Yai.

Samila Beach in Songkhla is one of Thailand's best kept secrets. At the Mermaid you can sit, feel the breeze and just reflect. The view is great, the people are friendly and even food is very nearby.
