Koh Samui trips: Hin Ta and Hin Yai in Lamai Beach, Koh Samui. Art often imitates Nature, but less common is Nature imitating Art, especially the art of the ribald. But in Thailand anything is possible including, on Koh Samui, the natural geological formations known as Hin Ta and Hin Yai Rocks (the Grandpa and Grandma rocks), which look, respectively, like male and female genitalia.
The list of Koh Samui’s attractions is surprisingly long as the island and its surroundings are full of places to go and things to see. If you’re interested in the intricate and symbolic Buddhist temple decor then you’ll be hard pressed to take in all of Samui’s ‘wats’ as there are many of them. Surrounding islands promise sun-filled days of exploration bliss while monkey shows, butterfly gardens and Samui Zoo cater to animal lovers’ tastes. The neighbouring Grandmother and Grandfather rocks near Lamai Beach are ribald reminders that Nature has a sense of humour while Samui’s waterfalls are the best way to get cooled off in the heat of the day. Out and out shows such as Christies transvestite cabaret are memorable and you can even indulge in a ‘normal’ activity such as going to the cinema. Enjoy your stay on Samui Island!

If you have been in Thailand for a while you would have seen many an ancient temple, this one is fairly new but it still uses the techniques that have been in place for hundreds of years. The feature of the temple is an 18 arm statue of Guanyin, Guanyin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. This living and working temple has a lot of visitors daily who pay homage to both Buddha and Guanyin. The temple is surrounded on all sides by a lake and if you make a donation to the temples coffers you will receive a bag of fish food to feed those that live in the lake.
Other Thailand attractions: Bangkok is an amazing place to see. We will talk about Bangkok attractions and especially the Bangkok floating market.

In addition to its endless array of shops and restaurants, the complex is home to an aquarium, an art gallery that showcases Thai art, and an opera concert hall that puts on some dazzling performances.
