It's not that magnificent nor not that great. It is just a bronze mermaid statue situated in rocky shore of Samila Beach. It represents the province of Songkhla and legend says that when on touches the breast of the mermaid, you'll be back again to Songkhla province, so that is why one should not miss this place, unless you don't...

Not a great piece of art, but a must stop is you tread all the way over to Songkhla! This statue from the 1960s has become the symbol for the city and for the province; no one will even believe that you were here if you don't have a picture of her to post on FB! ;-) Many restaurants along... More

The mermaid has nothing spectacular in herself, the best to see is the wonderful large and long part of beach, where the statue is located, by the way this place is an evening "rendez vous" mostly for youngster need to be left alone, with romantic beach and path to stroll around, few restaurant with lousy food, large esplanade with no...

I can't believe anyone would come to Samila Beach just to see the mermaid statue. It's just a statue, and not very interesting at that.

if you are in Songkla you can't miss it. can't say it is spectacular but still...you might as well go and have a look at it. we were not impressed however we can say we've seen it (many times taking visitors) so "we've done it.

you have a beach with a small statue of a mermaid. Pushy men who touches the breasts because this brings good luck, together with irritating men on ponies who want to sell pony rides. If you have never seen a statue in your life, you will love it.

The mermaid is on an outcrop of rock just where the two main beaches in Songkhla meet, just beside the large Samila Beach Hotel. Some local people say that it is meant to bring good luck if you stroke her breasts. There are often garlands of flowers put around the mermaids neck and many tourists from Thailand and Malaysia pose... More
