be prepared to walk upwards of some 400 steps to the top.magnificent view even if you can't do the lot.one drawback is the amount of monkey excrement on every step.you'll need to negotiate this unkept mess.

This is the second time i've visited Monkey Mountain and it's great fun observing the primates for half hour or so. There's also a collection of Buddhas and idols a short distance away on a plinthe that has fallen into disrepair from when i first visited which was sad to see. An idea may be to charge a few Baht...

Start your Takiab hill tour from south. See the huge standing Buddha. The climb the stairs. Visit this temple. The continue to south and climb the stairs to a pagoda. Ring the bells three times each. It brings luck. Then continue towards south-east and you'll find a chinese temple. Khao Takiab is not a 30 minutes target. It takes more... More

I'm presuming people come here for a wow view and to see all the monkeys running about. There are indeed a lot of monkeys and they do run about desperately trying to nick your food and general belongings but the view....not really awe inspiring. It's worth climbing up the stairs to the teensy temple but as views go this one... More

We always try to make it up to this view point when we visit HuaHin. This last time it was pitiful seeing the mangy monkeys...makes me think of the "Flight of the Concords"..."Whose been touching those monkeys? they've got problems enough as it is" These monkeys do seem to have problems. Anyway, they are in worse shape than ever. So... More

My partner and I love the beach here better than in Cha Am or Hua Hin and it's only mins from Hau Hin beach.. It's quieter and better beach by far. Despite the jelly fish saga while we were there.. this beach is much nicer beach and cleaner air. We sure will swim and spend time on the beach here... More

Too much of monkeys and they have no food. We must buy from nuns. The view is good but the place is too dirty.

we decided to visit this place despite some of the negative reviews about the monkey. We found it fairly difficult to find as wasn't signposted clearly. Once there, it wasn't obvious what was to see. We walked the 100+ plus steps up to the temple and the views of Hua Hin were amazing. The area itself was very run down... More
