Long Description:
The story: If you look at it just right, according to Chinese legend, Thailand's Phuket island resembles a dragon rising from the sea—with just a little bit of imagination. The name of the dragon is Hai Leng Ong, also known as the Great Sea Dragon of the Indian Ocean.

This dragon has been immortalised in Phuket town with a fairly impressive statue. This statue sits at the entrance to the Queen Sirikit Park. The dragon is gold in colour, and looks rather mean and menacing.

This statue was constructed by the office of Phuket City, in the year 2006, the 60th year of the Thai King's reign.
