Official description

Koh Nu and Koh Maeo are well known symbols of Songkhla. Situated off the coast at Laem Samila, legend has it that a dog, a cat (maeo), and a mouse (nu) on a Chinese ship, stole the merchant's magic crystal and tried to swim ashore but drowned. The mouse and cat became the islands in 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.
