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.

A trip to Wat Khao Takiap is a must if you are in Hua Hin. The monkeys are fun and sweet and you can buy a big bucket of corn for 20 bath and fed them. We had a blast and it was fun seeing the monkeys interact.

Super fun. My 4 year old loves it. Pay 50 bath and feed 200 monkeys with bananas, insane experience.

Wat Khao Takiab is known for the big standing buddha statue by the sea, but there are more. This wat is quite simple and if you are not familiar with thai buddhism, you won't find it interesting. But this is a nice place to visit and don't forget the white pagoda behind in on the hill. Very nice and peaceful.
