Ko Nu and Ko Maeo, a well-known symbol of Songkhla, is situated off the shore of Laem Samila. Legend has it that a dog, a cat – Maeo, and a mouse – Nu, on a Chinese sampan stole the merchant’s magic crystal and tried to swim ashore but drowned and lost their lives. The mouse and cat became the islands in the Songkhla Lake while the dog died on shore and became the hill called Hin Khao Tangkuan near the bay.  The crystal was totally destroyed and became the white sandy beach called Hat Sai Kaeo.
