3.4
#1 of 11 in Sightseeing in Songkhla Province

Depicting a saga by a famous 19th-century Thai poet, Mermaid Statue stands as a symbol of the city.

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.

Where to stay in Songkhla

Songkhla features fewer options that the area's more popular destinations. Few hotels offer online reservations or have official websites, so there's no way to know what's available until you arrive. Basic rooms typically include air conditioning and Wi-Fi, while the higher-end choices offer amenities like laundry service, bike rental, television, and hot water. Try to avoid hotels near public parks, where workout classes meet and often play loud music.
