#5 of 10 in Things to do in Chonburi
Khao Sam Muk, is a 45 m high hill in Chonburi Province, Thailand. It is located in Chonburi city right by the seashore of Bangkok Bay between Ang Sila and Bang Saen Beach. There is a Chinese shrine on the hill-top which affords views of the surrounding landscape, including Bang Saen Beach, and there is another shrine at the foot of the escarpment. There are many wild rhesus monkeys living in the bush on the sides of the hill. There are also cactus gardens on the hilltop and many restaurants below along the road flanking the shoreline. A tall white building on the southern side right by the hill is a blot on the panoramic view of Khao Sam Muk.Legends and symbolismKhao Sam Muk has symbolic significance in Chonburi. Local people believe that the spirit of that mountain protects the fishermen from harm. One legend tells that the wife of a fisherman waited on the hill for her husband who was lost at sea. Another legend tells that in the 18th century a poor Chinese girl named Sam Muk jumped to her death from the cliff after her parents objected to her marriage to her lover, becoming deified after her death. In some versions both the girl and her lover threw themselves from the escarpment. Sam Muk hill appears in somewhat stylized form in the provincial seal of Chonburi.
