We were actually thinking of private tour with a car and driver but was told by the tour office that since the next day is 1st of Jan, the drivers will party till late and hence no drivers will...

Our second visit here as we took friends from UK. A thoroughly enjoyable morning and something of an eye-opener for our friends. Plenty to see and do, and a wander into the well kept gardens is a must do as there is less of a crowd away from the main attraction. Good and inexpensive food available in the restaurant.

We took a open air mini bus from Hua Hin train station (out from train station turn right walk for 80 mths) for 40 Baht each, it about a 25 minute trip out to the Temple, via the floating market. Yes it is your normal Thai Temple with the normal stuff to buy. However the temple is set in some... More

It's an interesting place, since you see a Buddha in the likeness of a monk, instead of the generic face of Buddha that you normally see. I didn't stay long though, since it was rather warm that day, and there's no shade available near the Buddha.

Great place to see some of the beautiful Thai / Buddist idols. A new temple is currently being constructed - concrete work is complete and the external decoration (gold spire, beautiful roofing tiles etc) is now underway. Gives you an insight into the many hours labour. We stopped at this sight on the way back from Pala-U Waterfall. Our driver... More

Nice temple and monuments grounds are lovely. Good for photography. Can feed the fish on the lake. It can get very busy on auspicious days. Best to go on a standard weekday. In the summer very hot. Be respectful and be sure not to wear beachwear.

Seen this POI in combination with the Pala-U waterfalls and liked the fact that mostly Thais were on location. Impressive size of monk statue and the wooden elephants in front you need to go around and under (!) for three times for your wish to come true! :-)

Worth a trip if you combine it with the Dao Cave which is only 10mins further out of Hua Hin. You probably need about half an hour here.
