A visit here is worthwhile in any case, but can sometimes be a bit crowded on weekends. Parking space there is always enough.

It is worth a trip, just to see how big the statue is. It is not an all day trip, but it is good to visit on the way or way back from another activity. It is surprisingly peaceful at Huay Mongkol temple (even with the crowds of people all around).

Nice place and highly recommended to visit . But do not over spend your time here as Huay Mongkol is just for prayers and some photos

If you are in the region, it is worth visiting this temple. I would not say that the temple by itself is worth a journey. In the region you may go and visit Hua Hin Vineyards which is very close from there. It is a good combination for a day trip.

Good for offering to monks and temples and the temple is expanding by buying a big piece of land beside. Good time to donate for merits. Also selling some hand-made Buddha tablet at a shop within the temple ground. There is a nice statue of Rama V beside the giant monk statue. Also go take a look at the lake... More
