This is my second visit after more than 30 years and things did not change very much. This time, we were there with my 2 daughters who are visiting for the first time.

The mermaid statute is nice that there is no equal in this part of the world. The view out to sea is good and there is a soothing effect of the waves lapping on the rocks on the otherwise sandy beach. Other than that, the beach itself is quite ordinary.

We enjoyed the coconut ice cream available from the vendors there just by the beach.

The beach and its surroundings is nice to visit as a day package. As usual, the mermaid is the main attraction. Do be careful when climbing up the statue for photos as it can be slippery.

The Golden Mermaid is the symbol of Songkhla.Its situated on a nice part of Samila beach and is visited by both locals and tourists.
Many leave flowers at the statue and climb up to have their picture taken with the Mermaid.
Local folklore has it that if you stroke her it will bring you good luck.
It is mainly symbolic but worth taking the trouble to view.
