The poet and the Mermaid, Koh Samet, Thailand. Sunthorn Phu (1786–1855) is probably one of the most respected poets among Thai people. In Phra Aphai Mani, a mermaid is saving Prince Aphai Mani from the sea and takes him to Koh Samet. A statue, that illustrates this drama, is placed on the rocks between Ao Hin Khok and Hat Sai Kaew.
If you want to be rescued, Koh Samet is a pretty good place, and beautiful Thai mermaid, would be fine, but TWO shapely LEGS would be preferable to the tail!
