Arrived at 4 pm and hardly anybody there. Seemed a real lack of investment and we ended up stranded as no buses or taxis to take us back to town. Recommend early morning and either take a taxi or a bus which runs from the train station on the hour until 4 pm last one.

One of the place which I always wanted to visit. A huge park with a gigantic statue of Luang pu Thuad. Many locals were here and there is other shrine with other Buddha statue and a huge king thaksin statue was there too. There is also stalls selling nice coffee and u can even buy bread to feed the fishes... More

About 30 minutes drive from Hua Hin. A very impressive site but would be much more stimulating with some materials in English. Clearly targeting Thai people and if one does not have much insight into Buddhism generally and the local history particularly, the visit's benefits are reduced.

Something not to be missed. Avoid weekends as the locals are extremely devout. The Buddha statue was amazing in its size.

We took a tour from Hua Hin to Huay Mongkol & Kao Tao. For 1,500 baht we enjoyed a 4 hour tour. The Temple is magnificent as are the surronding areas, although there was some rebuilding going ...highly recommended.

Went with parents & no doubt it is one of the most attractive spot in Hua Hin. Huge statue, you can feel the atmosphere the moment you step in the temple area. Hot but worth to visit.
