You can pose for pictures with Nang Nguek Thong or Golden Mermaid Statue while enjoy a relaxing walk along the seafront. There are also plenty of vendors congregate along the beachfront, selling everything from cheap eats to Songkhla souvenirs.

Samila beach in Songkhla is a nice place to walk either on the beach itself or on the small streets besides, which include several restaurants, pubs, and shops. There is a golden mermaid statue where lots of tourists go to take pictures. While the beach is nice, it depends where you are travelling from because Thailand has lots of great beaches so if you want the best then you are more likely to find something better in Phuket instead, in part because the water in Songkhla is not as clear. But for this area of Thailand I found Songkhla to be well taken care of with many flowers, shrubs, and plants. It's a nice place for a relaxing afternoon.

International visitors flock to this beach in droves and there is quite a thriving little beachside economy going on. You’ll find dozens of food and drink shacks, the obligatory trinket sellers and ponies for hire if you feel like a bit of horse riding. It’s a real carnival atmosphere, with selfies all round and everyone having a marvelous time. It makes me wonder what the beaches are like where these visitors are from, because Samila Beach Is bang average, and even that is being kind. The trash has been cleared away, but the water is still murky and the lagoon isn’t somewhere I’d want to submerge my feet. The sign says it’s too dangerous to swim. Is that because of the dodgy water or the choppy conditions? Who could say?

Beyond visiting the photo-friendly mermaid, Samila has a lot to offer: sand, rocks, casuarina trees extend for many potential hours of walk. It is rare to find such beautiful waters within a large town.

Morning jogging, biking or beach picnic. Local street food like coconut icecream, dried squid and many more are highly recommended. 4.30 until 6 pm beach view is also very nice
