Mermaid Statue, Songkhla

(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Depicting a saga by a famous 19th-century Thai poet, Mermaid Statue stands as a symbol of the city. The story of a beautiful mermaid frightened by a young fisherman inspired this bronze sculpture, built in 1966 and supposedly bringing good luck. Enjoy the sea breeze and ocean view while visiting the iconic landmark, and snap a few photographs with it--just be careful when climbing the slippery rocks. While in the area, consider explorinng the numerous stores and restaurants nearby, including souvenir shops where you can buy a trinket to remind you of your travels.
