Located in Khao Takiab area, next to Hua Hin. Basically its the same city but many years ago Hua Hin and Khao Takiab was different cities. You can see the city of Hua Hin and the Gukf of Thailand.

It has some amazing view of Hua Hin. Lots of monkey that will snatch anything that you are holding. Still worth a visit if you are around the area.
