“Good Free Tourist attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I thought this was definetly a good visit if you are in Hua Hin or nearby areas. It is an impressive site with beautiful gardens and walk ways. It was very busy with tourists but we went at lunch time so the morning may have been quieter. A lot of Thai people visiting here also which made it seem even better as they have great interest in it. Make sure to cover shoulders and look respectable as i was in a decent length beach dress but still felt somewhat uncomfortable in what i was wearing compared to others. Lots of stalls selling trinkets, t-shirts etc for sale. You can also see the monks walking around and saying mass. It is also a free attraction and you can get a taxi from Hua Hin to here and other sites for very cheap (We paid approx 500thb for taxi to this and floating markets and spend approx 4-5 hours so definetly a bargin!)

“very interesting statue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I like a big statue at the temple. I felt that the temple was very far from the Dusit Thani Hotel but many people in my group loved to go there, we went there on the way to Hua Hin Winery.

“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I'm no fan of temples or religious iconography, but I have to say that this was damned impressive. Different enough to earn the title.

“A must place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Fantastic setting, I always get blown away at places like this. But you could easily spend a half day to a day walking around the beautiful scenery and huge Monk and golden trees are so fascinating. We came across Huay Mongkol whilst driving out to Pala-U waterfall. So glad we did :)

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

If out for the day, a good place to visit for a walk around and an ice cream. No cost to enter. Kids liked it. You only need 1-2hrs max
