Stunning views of Hua Hin and hinterland.

Had walked to this site along the beach a few times, but never gone higher. Did not realise there was an even bigger site above the Budha so obvious from the road. We were lucky... read more

Had walked to this site along the beach a few times, but never gone higher. Did not realise there was an even bigger site above the Budha so obvious from the road. We were lucky to get a Tuk tuk ride up to the Temple steps as it was a hot humid day when we visited. There are plenty of... More

When visiting Hua Hin your experience is not complete without a visit to the old Buddhist temple at the top of this hill. Be careful if you decide to pack a lunch for this trek as marauding small monkeys will try to steal it from you at any opportunity.Good fun and be sure to put a few coins in the... More

Nice place to visit to see an amazing view of Hua Hin. There is no entrance fee. You can take a scooter directly to the top or you can take the stairs which can be a bit of a climb.

Easy few hour trip to check out the place. Nice views and when the locals tell you to avoid eating anything near the monkey's you better believe them. I didn't and I paid the price (had to give them my ice cream away or else...)

We visited this temple early on a Tuesday morning (9am), it was not fully open but we managed to climb up to view Hua Hin shoreline which was fabulous. The trek up the stairs in the morning heat was hard work but worth it.

We walked from our place (our home in Thailand) from the beach to go to Wat Khao Takiap. Most tourists would hire a Tuk-tuk to go there. But we had our morning walk to go there. It was fun.

This used to be a fairly well kept Wat with lots of reasonable memento type shops but in recent years has deteriorated to a scruffy shadow of its former self however some building work is now going on so maybe by the time you read this it may have improved. The views however are excellent and if you are staying... More

Other than praying at the temple, you can see an awesome view of hua hin beach from the top. Recommend to go near sunset timing to capture photos of the sunset. There are many monkeys at the temple. You can purchase food to feed them if i am not wrong.

We've been before and we will no doubt go again when we are In Hua Hin. Wife and I take a short trip down the main Petch road and grab a coffee somewhere in Koh Takieb. Following that we head up to the Wat (temple) where you can walk the many stairs, wander around the other smaller temples on the... More
