Paid a Vist here November 2015. Enjoyed the ride up the hillside which took us through a little community of local fishing village. Walked last 400 yards to the top and saw loads of monkeys as we got higher. Climb to the Temple is on the steep side and well worth for the view. Shame the area is a bit... More

Temple and buddha's are in bad condition. Entrance is free, maybe that is the reason. Pretty far from the center but for 10 bah pp you can go there by green 'bus' and do not need to pay 150 bat for the tuk tuk. It's about 20 min drive. We liked the view and the funny monkeys. If you scared... More

Go feed the monkeys and climb the stairs to the temple. A bit run down but still the kids will love seeing the monkeys play and who does not like feeding monkeys.

This is a Buddhist temple. Located on the top of the hill. During the route we seen a lot of monkeys on the road, and more at temple area. There was two zones, Buddhist zone on the front of the parking area, and Chinese gods and goddesses zone on the left path downhill. The scenic is very nice, we can... More

Mostly, this area is overrun with tourist shops, restaurants and hotels. Khao Takiap is a rock outcropping dissecting the long beach coastline of Hua Hin, with a Buddhist temple built on top. The temple itself is no big deal, although the stair climb to the top will test your legs and wind. From the top, you do get a wonderful... More

Monkeys which are a fun attraction, but the whole point of this temple is to go up for the view. Though i would advise if you have motorcycle to head for the top of the highest hill, from which you will get an even better view. (But be careful, rough terrain)

a hillside temple situated elevated overlooking down either far side of Hua Hin or the more secluded side. However, you will see the infestation of Macaques Monkeys here in this temple. They are being fed by the local people here that take care of the temple. You can walk all the way up as well to the Buddha image if... More

It is quite a work out to climb up the mountains, but the tall Buddha and the Wat are quite special and a reward. The view over the bay is spectacular. Only downside are a lot of more or less aggressive monkeys you better avoid.

We enjoyed a walk from our hotel along the beach to this mountain temple located at the end of the beach. There is a lovely Buddha statue. Not the most spectacular temple in Thailand but our children (and us!) were kept entertained by the cheeky monkeys. Definitely worth a visit!
