Sunthon Phu, royal Thai poet
The poet Sunthon Phu (or Sonthorn Phu) wrote in the 19 Century the story of Phra Apai Mani, in which the same named prince was kidnapped by the female giant pee Seue Samut. She transformed herself into a beautiful woman, in which Phra Apai Mani fell in love ​​and he became the father of a son.
After many years Phra Apai Mani found out the truth, grabbed his son and ran away from her. For the avoidance, a family of mermaids helped him. In the beautiful daughter of the mermaids Phra Apai Mani fell in love and became the father of his second son, Sutsakhon.
But the story was not over yet - it just starts.
The story of Phra Apai Mani was published in a 2003 Thai fantasy film.

According to the legend, Pee Seua Samut is still angry that she has lost Phra Apai Mani. Each year she attracts a man into the water and she let him drown.

Puek Tian beautiful sandy beach
Puek Tian also has a small but beautiful sandy beach. The beach is a small, protected bay so you can also go into the water. But beware to swim further, the currents can be really treacherous, also for good swimmers.

Buddha at the beach of Cha-Am
On a small platform is a Buddha figure, which is equipped daily with drinks, food , fresh flowers and incense.
Puek Tiam is a beautiful destination for an excursion from Cha-Am. Directly at the beach is also a restaurant, but it offers low food quality for high prices.
