“Ohh..We are so lucky! That that .. Can you see it?!!” excited voice of middle-aged man shouted against the winds and the waves, while he quickly ran to a little boy who was making a sand castle with his mom and sister.
“Dolphins, Dolphins, Dolphins!!!” his dad is still exciting, while carry the boy in his arms and take him to see the dolphins for that the boy can talk big at his school day….”
This is a little part of impression that always see on “Had Tongyang”(Tongyang Beach), the one beautiful place of Mookao PlyDum (a group of Mountain,Plydum),where is Nakornsrithammarat proud to present.
Kao Plydum, this strange name has been origin from the appearance of the mountain which similar to the Elephant, or else some people told that it comes form the name of the herb on the mountain,“Pridum”,which can cure many disease and only found at this mountain in former times.
However, we don”t clearly know the origin of the mountain”s name, the physical features of the mountain which has 3 long continuous range, Plydum Mountain, Kland Mountain, Laung Mountain, by the jiont of Kanom and Sichon district, create a very rich forest and many impression place. So, it”s proudly called “The south sea dragon “
Many tourists who point their distance to Kao Plydum always have the same question ” Could we be lucky to see the dolphins?”, because the one great destination of Nakornsrithammarat is “Wang Loma”(Dolphin Palace). Wang Loma is located on the north of Ao Tongyang, near the height mountain and full with group of stone along the beach.
This is a great gift for you if you visit “Kao plydum”
