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.

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
