Nice view to have some picture. But probably you wont stop long here. But this is kind of landmark which you shall visit. Dragon head, body and tail at located at different place. We pass by the dragon body before we reach here and my kids are interested to find out where the dragon tail is and we found it.

We went by car to Kho Yo and took the ferry to Songklah. First we passed the queue for the ferry and were amazed by the fishermen village near by. It takes quite a while to find a place for a U-turn in this narrow street.

Nice place, not much to do anyway. Only 5-10 mins sight seeing and congrats youve seen everything! But worth it, and its near the other spots

A must to visit because it is the legend in Songkhla other than Mermaid Statue. Nice views for taking photo.
