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.

The real attraction here is not the temple, but the 500 monkeys made this mountain their home. You can buy some banana's or other foods to feed the monkeys (don't touch them, just throw it on the ground, they're wild monkeys after all. We were...More

Some may say it’s “just another temple” but I’d argue that it’s bit more exciting than that. There are multiple layers to the experience. Though there isn’t extravagant architecture, glistening spires, and bejeweled statues, there is a peaceful and enchanting view from the top. The...More

Not much here apart from the temple at the top, 100 steps up so not for the feint hearted. There are a few stalls/shops but nothing else worth the visit.

On arrival you are confronted by this huge staircase up to a Temple that looks out over Hua Hin in the distance. As I struggled up the stairs I counted them - 128 in total! Not for the elderly unless you are very fit. The...More

A small temple atop the hill. There are bells around the prayer hall which you can ring with a coin and then wish at the end. It's peaceful up there, and the scenic view of Hua Hin beach area is breath taking.

Wat Khao Takiap is a small temple seated up on the hill majestically overlooking the city of Hua Hin. The climb is not too bad .. maybe about 100++ steps only but the view up there is simply worth it.
