Good view

It has a very good view of Hua Hin since it is on top of the hill. there's plenty of monkeys roaming around the hill but they are not aggressive to the visitors.

You can see the temple for miles and it looks like you can walk up the mountain to it, but you can't actually get to it without going round the back of the mountain

The taxi driver told us that the head monk had been up to naughties with a lady. As a result the local community does not support with money. I have no knowledge to the truth of this story. Anyway pretty run down. Monkeys are a bit scary. Witnessed a local give a full kick to one of the poor creatures... More

South side of the city, on top of Khao Takiab, older temple in not so very good condition. The view of the beaches is very nice and make it worth going up.

Ok, not much there, very steep and a lot of climbing. Best bit was the hundreds of monikers everywhere...take some bananas

We've been to Hua Hin dozens of times and surprisingly never took the time to visit Khao Takiab until our recent visit. A pleasant surprise. The large standing Buddha is very impressive; the hike to the top of the small mountain rewards visitors with a great view of the sprawling beach. The beach itself is surprisingly nice in this area,... More

Great view from the top and you can also get a good view of the temple from the opposite knoll. Numerous monkey running around and you can actually observe their different temperaments and character. Some monkeys bullying, some monkeys just mind their own business, some monkeys always close to the temple seemingly in deep thought and praying. The monkeys are... More

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.
