Wat khao takiap holds an amazing view of hua hin. The wat has many monkeys wandering around and monks feeding them. very peaceful and quiet. Highly recommended for view lovers, and for the tough ones, come to see the sunrise

Totally infested with monkeys, and they can be spiteful - not dangerous per se, but are prone to bag/food/drink snatching. Don't let that put you off - it is a must-see place in Hua Hin

Do not miss this attraction...the view is fantastic from the top of the temple. Keep an eye on the monkeys! The fishing village below is worth a wander around too.

Be aware the temple is high up a mountain and if you want to see inside you have to climb a further long stairway. Not for the invalid or elderly. One of the main attractions are the free roaming monkeys which are a wonderful attraction as well as the pleasant mountain top views.

In facts, if you don't like monkeys, don't go! Many steps too climb, hot and smelly. Attractive Wat at the top The aggressive monkeys are a deterrent!

This is a Buddhist temple on a hill also known as monkey mountain due to the fact that there are hundreds of monkeys walking around freely at the complex. The view from the top of the hill is amazing and there are many nice photo opportunities at the top of the hill of Hua Him and the Ocean. We decided... More
