Tang Kuan Hill, Songkhla

Visited Tang Kuan Hill during 2012 lunar New Year. It is  near  to samila beach just a few minutes drive will bring you there. One you reach there you will see lotsa of monkey around the lift station they just playing around and be careful with your food, "they" will rob you. The entree fees is free but you need to pay 30 baht for adult  and 20 baht for children for the lift ticket or you can go up by foot for free. The lift is 136m in length and carry up to 20 persons a time it took about 3 minutes to reach hilltop. Once you reach the top you can saw magnificent 360 degree panoramic view of songkhla with sea, bay, mountain, lake and the town. It's just beautiful and breathtaking. Besides the view there is some old brick ( used to be surrounded Phrathat Chedi Luang) , stupa  protected in designated area for public viewing
