There are names like Laem Singh and Laem Sing. Both names of beach is almost identical, the only difference is one letter "h" which, in Thai is not pronounced. Therefore, we always hear the sound of Laem sing. By the way, the Thais, Phuket, also pronounced as Phuket and Phi Phi, like PI-PI. All this, because of the silent "h".
Laem Singh beach is small and virtually hidden from prying eyes. Located in a small natural Bay, where the beach strip, there are mountains, abundantly covered with tropical forest and palm trees.

Most of the beaches of Thailand free, but with such a small and remote beaches enterprising Thais make the next rent or buy a piece of land to the beach, lay the track and takes a fee for use of the beach, and for passage through their territory to the beach.
