There is a story behind this..., but I would have to look it up

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

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!
