Hin Yai/ Hin Tai or Grandmother and Grandfather Rock is a famous landmark found at the south end of the picturesque Lamai beach in the island of Koh Samui. These Koh Samui attractions can stop any tourist on their tracks to take a picture of the famous rocks. These rock formations were shaped by nature resembling human sex organs. The Grandmother rock has a belly and a split forming the legs. On the other hand, the Grandfather rock is shaped like a penis. These rocks are actually beautiful with the background of blue water despite the silliness they project.
Hin Yai and Hin Tai have become somewhat of a fertility symbol among Asians. There is a folklore that goes with these rock formations that can explain how they came to be. These sights of Koh Samui are very popular among tourists because of the astonishing creation of nature. There are a few stalls lining the road down the rocks that sell sweet treats, just to make your visit all the more memorable.
