At Koh Samui one of the well known attractions is the Grandpa and Grandma rocks. The attraction is a bit silly, but somehow attract a lot of tourist every day. It is a rock formation, which has two rocks, shaped like at man and woman’s genitals, if you have a bit of imagination. In thai the rocks are called Hin Ta and Hin Yai, and is followed by a local myth of a old couple living with their son, who was in the marriage age. They decided to travel to the neighboring province to ask for the hand of the daughter of a local man. During their sea journey, the boat was hit by a storm and he old couple died at sea, and their souls turned into rocks, showing the brides parents their true intensions.
At the area of the rocks, you will also find a lot different small shops, where you can buy all the usual stuff as all other tourist traps. But there is one thing you most certain should buy here, some of the local coconut ice-cream – which is quite good, and a nice refreshment on a varm day.
