Sun Beach

Hat Chao Mai National Park 2023

Chao Mai National Park is home to several picturesque beaches, with white sandy shores and crystal-clear waters. As you will see from this slideshow video.

I visited here on my road trip to the southern part of Thailand in December 2023, I will after this visit be going again, if not just for the peace, the beauty of this amazing place. This is the most beautiful part of Thailand you will ever see!

Samila Beach

Songkhla-Southern Thailand

The busiest part of Samila Beach is the eastern end nearest Songkhla Town centre. In front of the famous mermaid statue is a long promenade ending in front of roundabout bearing the name ‘Samila Beach’. Lining the promenade are restaurants, shops and market stalls. At the beach end of the promenade is a large concrete pavilion.

Samila Beach is not a swimming or sunbathing beach. There are a lot of large ships in the bay. The beach is somewhere people walk along or sit around. People also come to exercise, ride bicycles, and even horses, up and down the beach side path. They also come at sunset to enjoy an ice cream, a sausage on a stick, draw pictures of the bay, or a drink.

Looking westwards along Samila Beach from the mermaid statue the bay curves gently northwards for just under 3 km. For the entire length of the bay there is wide border of pine trees all the way to far tip of the peninsular marking the end of the beach and opening of large river mouth linking the sea to the vast Songkhla Lake.

The famous statue on Samila Beach is the cat and mouse statue at the eastern end of the beach. This large statue was installed in 2000 to commemorate the local legend of the cat, the mouse, the dog and the magic crystal.

According to the legend a Chinese merchant ship carrying a magic crystal was passing by Simila Beach when the ships’ dog, cat and mouse, working together as a team, stole the magic crystal and made a bid for freedom by attempting to swim to the shore. Neither dog, cat, mouse or magic crystal ever made it to the beach. The dog turned into Tang Kuan hill, the cat and mouse turned into the two islands in the bay, named Cat Island (Koh Maeow) and Mouse Island (Koh Nu).

Ang Thong Waterfall

This is a little Waterfall by the side of a main road. Very easy to access. We visited it on our December 2023 Road trip around the southern end of Thailand.

The waterfall rock is dark greenish yellow color. The water in this waterfall looks like a pale gold color. This 10-meter-High waterfall are flowing all year around and the most significant to this fall is the color, the color of this waterfall is gold. There are many picnic tables and Trees around the basin of the waterfall where people can relax and enjoy its surroundings.

There is also a path for people to walk up to the top of the waterfall, but we did not as we were on our way to Pak Meng, which was still quite a drive onwards.

Wang Thep Tharo, Dragon Garden

Trang-Thailand 2023

The Old Man and the Dragons

Part of my road trip in December 2023, in the districts of Trang and Songkhla, took me to this beautiful and quite spectacular "Dragon Garden" in some 48hectres of land there is a minimum of some 88 Dragons. In this slideshow you will see a good selection of what I saw on the day.

The sign in the center of the sculpture park reads "Pay respect to the Earth" in Thai. Others scattered along walking paths offer words of wisdom in two languages, including "Be powerful like a dragon." I'm didn't feel so powerful in this tropical heat, just five minutes in the sun turning my shirt into a sweaty mess.

Holding court in a shaded pavilion was the man behind all this, Mr. Jaroon Keawla-eiad. ("That's probably not a perfect spelling," my guide explained. "Some Thai words don't translate very well into English letters.") He is a retired local schoolteacher that took over this land of theptaro trees many decades ago and made a dragon from the curvy tree's roots. Then he made another, and one after that, then kept going. There are now 88 of them on the property.
