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

Go there only during sunny day for the best view of Hua Hin beach. Not advisable for people who is afraid of monkey and people having knee problems.

A fun place to visit. On your way to the top, you are able to see many of the monkeys living here. At the top of the stears you are met by a beautifull view over Hua Hin.

A taxi or a tuktuk will take you up to the mountain and wait for you until you want to go back. Temple was closed but the view up there is great. They warned us not to take any food with you because the monkeys will take it, but I was ‘attacked’ for my bottle of water! When we came... More
