You can incorporate a visit to Huay Mongkol on your way to the Pala U waterfall from Hua Hin as you don't need long here. Worth a visit and is indeed, a very big Buddha!

Visited as a stopover to Pala U Waterfall , Very big statue. Guess you have to be Thai to appreciate. Some shops with herps and toilets. Not for me but a great foto for home.

Another cheap and easy way of transportation to Wat Huay Mongkol is by using the white color songthaew. The route starts from Hua Hin railway station moving towards Damneonkasem Road and Petchakasem Road. So you can actually catch the white songthaew from the opposite road facing Market Village, paying B40/pax all the way till the end of destination at Wat... More

A short drive from Hua Hin, the temple and surroundings at the Huay Mongkol Temple are both impressive in their size and scope, and in their sense of tranquillity. A major site for tourists, it can be quite busy, especially on religious holidays, but it maintains a sense of respectfulness for those worshiping at the temple. There are fish to... More

You can purchase candles, gold leaf and incense sticks to offer. There is also nice surroundings to have your picture taken, be blessed by monks and even feed rather large fish some... More

This seems to be an important spiritual stop, but if you just want to see a pretty temple, it really isn't so great.

Its a giant statue of a monk who believed will bring good luck and safety for people. Nice spot for photos but try not to go in the afternoon, very very very hot.
