Hin Ta & Hin Ya Rocks and Khao Hua Jook Pagoda, Koh Samui, Thailand

Here is a little report from Hin Ta & Hin Ya Rocks, which is translated as Grandma and Grandpa Rocks, on Koh Samui island in Thailand.

You can find some souvenir stalls, clothes shops and eateries nearby the rocks.  Sometimes we grab some Thai noodles and crash there on the rocks having a lunch. We found it’s a nice place to relax, to read a book, to have lunch or just to sit there and watch the waves breaking.

Another awesome place on the island is Khao Hua Jook Pagoda built in 2009 on the hill. You can see the golden pagoda’s dome from the road.

There is a huge Buddha’s footprint inside:

Here’s the same view but in a stormy weather:

I recommend to visit this place in the evening or at night. There are no visitors at that time, monks are sleeping and island looks gorgeous.
