Here is the statue telling the story of the Cat, Dog and Mouse and the Crystal. As legend has it, they stole a magic crystal from a merchant off of his junk (boat). Being swept out to sea the mouse put the magic crystal in his mouth for safe keeping. As they all swam for safety, the mouse thought...what if the cat tries to steal the crystal from me?..the Cat thinking that the mouse was trying to steal the crystal swan closer to the mouse....fearing for his life now, the mouse swam faster...as did the cat only reinforcing the mouses thoughts of the cats intentions....the dog also swam behind...but alas, they all became exhausted and drowned...Legend has it, the the cat became Koh Meaw (Cat Island..the Big one) the Mouse became Koh noo (mouse Island the smaller one) the Dog became Kao Tangkuan (the Monkey hill!) and the crystal became the sandy beaches along the beach know as Haastsaikaew.
Having a wonderful time....wish you were here!
