A small temple on a steep hill just outside Hua Hin (to the south) in Khao takiab. Great views from the temple. Highlight is the feeding the monkeys (and there are a lot of them) from a basket (100 baht).

Firstly the views from the top of the temple are beautiful and worth the short trip alone. The monkeys are cheeky and will attack anything in a wrapper or bottle that resembles food or drink so be warned. If you can brave the steps the views from the top are rewarding. Maybe not worth considering if you have mobility issues,... More

Masses of monkeys, just be careful when going into your bag or pockets because if they think you have food or drink, they WILL steal it from you!!! The area was very unkept, this might be due to the monkeys wrecking everything😕It is a very steep hill and then steep steps leading to a small temple, if you can manage... More

For me, its scary. First time saw so many monkeys in a group. Majority in giant size...be careful with your belongings especially drinks and food. the monkeys are smart enough to smell it..

Transportation to Khao Takiap was super easy. The adventurous and cheapest way to go is by using green color Songthaew from any part of Hua Hin downtown (around night market area) which is B10 per person each way or from even furtherest around airport or opposite Plearnwan B20/person. Generally you can also hail the Songthaew anytime and anywhere along the... More

Beautiful beach with stunning views of monkey mountain..this beach is far better than the one in Hua HIn and many of the hotels along its shore will allow you to use their swimming pools even if your not a guest..just buy a beer or soft drink and they will let you swim there all day...

Set in the hills it has a wonderful little beach voce and beautiful sights. If you are new to temple visits or Buddhism ask a Thai person to help explain what some of the statues and architecture means. You can also participate in their meditation ceremonies which are enlightening and be blessed by a monk.

It was lovely to see the view of Hua Hin from this peaceful mountain top, a wonderful reward for the walk along the beach from my hotel to reach this destination.
