Attractions near the Chaweng Regent Beach Resort
A short drive south from the hotel brings you to a strange, yet fascinating rock formation. Known as Grandpa and Grandma, the Hin Ta and Hin Yai rocks each resemble male and female genitalia respectively.
Local legend is that two parents who wanted their son to marry were sailing from a nearby island to ask a local family's daughter to marry their son. They were unfortunately caught in a storm and died at sea. The tale is that their bodies were washed ashore and still remain in the rock formations as a sign of their intentions to the would-be bride’s parents.
A mummified monk
Defying the laws of science and remaining a religious place of peace, the Wat Kiri Wongkaram temple on Koh Samui is an intriguing place to visit. Monk Luang Por Ruam was born near the temple in 1879 and passed away in 1966. His body remains on display in the temple grounds. No preservatives have been used on his body, yet his hair and fingernails continue growing to this day.
Visitors are warmly invited in to the temple to see the monk displayed in a glass cabinet. The temple is a friendly place and is the centre of many community activities in the village.
