Fabulous views from the top. Lots of steps to the top in heat. Steps had broken glass so had to tread carefully. Interesting journey up passing the fishing dock area with lots of tiny seafood restaurants. Monkeys add to the ambience.

It is worth a morning or afternoon trip to escape from Hua Hin and takes about 20 minutes to reach from Hua Hin town centre. We took one of the Green Songtaews (communcal taxis) from near the night market on Sa Song Road to reach Khao Takiab at a remarkably cheap 10 baht per person each way. Contrast this with... More

This is one of my favorite relaxation places in Hua Hin. I can recommend the getting a Thai massage on the way up the hill and then going to beach next to it. Khao Takiab beach (the part after the hill, not on the Hua Hin side) is the best beach in Hua Hin - it is quiet, clean and... More

Gorgeous place to visit.Not too many steps,but the view from the top is amazing,especially on a sunny day.Shops(mostly tourist crafty bits) are reasonably priced and you can definitely grab a few bargains.Nice little café to sit out of the sun and enjoy a nice cold drink.Lovely!

Nice short climbing to visit a military base and a temple (usually closed to tourist). Mainly surrounded by monkeys that goes down for a little swim. As other temples in Asia, beware of monkeys...

The views from the different viewing platforms are nice giving a good perspective of hua hin. It is worth going to different platforms for different views. The park itself is very run down with paths, enclosures etc falling apart. Small shop at front sells drinks. Worth driving up for the view and to get away from the hustle of huahin... More

I waled to Chopsticks Hill and hiked up it only to learn that you could take a taxi to the top of it from the other side. I was glad that I hiked up it but it was a lot of stairs. The views of Hua Hin and surrounding areas are the best, Pretty much everything else on the hill... More

Chopsticks Hill or Monkey Mountain was a unique and cheap experience. The cost was only the tuk tuk fare to take us up and everything else is free!!! The place is not shiny and new, but this is to be expected where monkeys roam free. The view of Hua Hin from the temple is amazing (even worth the steep long... More

As we were staying nearby, it was convenient for us to visit. The walk up to the temple from the north side was very steep but the view was worth it. A few too many monkeys for my liking but my kids loved to see them play so seeing the laughter in their eyes made it worth it. The beach... More

Khao Takiab for years had been the boundary of the beach of Hua Hin. We escaped the weekend crowd by driving to the extreme south of the stretch of Hua Hin beach where the fisherman were, and thay's Khao Takiab. Presently the development of resort city totally over-shadowed the fisherman village or even the Chopsticks Hill. Maybe it is unrealistic... More
