You could get a tuk tuk to take you all the way up but we felt a bit more adventurous and got the green songthaew from the centre of Hua Hin which is 10 baht per person each way. It only takes you to the bottom of the hill but for an extra 60 baht the driver took us up... More

This vantage point gives you a complete view of the beach and is a steep climb for about 10 minutes. Totally worth it. I suggest you travel using the local tuk tuk which is a shared service. Also there are monkeys here on this mountain. A perfect dinner is anantasila which is nearly a 20minute walk from here.

You need to drive up the hill foot, then from there is a climb up the stairs to the main shrine. You will be rewarded with a rewarding view of the Hua Hin Bay. There are some monkeys along the stairs up, do be careful of your belonging. From the hill foot, try to go down another stairs way which... More

I like mountains overlooking the sea. It's calm, peaceful, and quiet. Climbing all those stairs and have a great panorama of the huahin beach, you will like it.

A nice little oasis away from the hustle & bustle of Hua Hin City life.You will find everything you need here, but without the large amount of people that you will encounter in the city about a mile away.The prices seem lower at the bars & resturants too!

Located at the far end of the beach on a hill, great to walk there all the way from the centre of hua hin, just follow the beach, it's clearly visible from miles away! Great view from on top, no entrance fee And the resident monkeys there will surely entertain you...they are not aggressive at all, just don't carry any... More

If you climb towards the top on the north side on a sunny day you are rewarded with superb views of the beach all the way to Hua Hin. Once you get right to the top there are statues and then the footpath/road leads you to the temple area and the place where you can purchase tourist items. This is... More

One of the must see locations in Hua Hin. The access to the wat is done through the beach where a huge statue of Buddha welcomes the tourists. Through a steep stairs you can then reach the monastery and enjoy a beautiful view of Hua Hin. Behind the monastery, through a 10 minutes walk, there is a local restaurant, where... More

We wanted to visit attractions around Hua Hin and our hotel manager recommended this attraction and the local eateries in the area. We took the 10-baht tuk-tuk to get there, walked to the site for about ten minutes and climbed for another 15 minutes. No admission fee, but donations were recommended. The site was showing signs of lack of maintenance.... More
