Golden Mermaid Statue reviews
The statue is the landmark of Samila Beach. Tourists hot spot & crowded almost everyday. Worth to visit more »
a statue on a rock at the northern end of the long beach. great for photos but not really worth the trip if you are not in the area. more »
This is a local tourist attraction that should not be missed - very popular with tourists and locals it can get very busy. A great photo opportunity more »
You can see the Golden Mermaid Statue and some other interesting places. This statue has been projected as very big in pictures. But its in normal size and the good thing is we can take photo with the Mermaid statue and nice place to sit.
Beautiful statue. The tail blowed up by the bomb and it was repaired
Best Place to Snap A Picture around here.
Nice beach, clean environment. Came here after songkran festival wheater very hot than usual. Easy to get halal food
Very crowded with hawker stalls everywhere selling wide varieties of goods (ranging from souvenirs to small snacks). When we went, it was just before the bombing so the mermaid is beautiful and gold. Now, I am not too sure on the condition and whether it remains open or not.
