Nice view over Hua Hin city - beware of the monkeys

You can visit the big golden Buddha here, and a temple up the hill. Beware of the monkeys. Beautiful view over the bay and Hua Hin city.

There is a temple and budda, with many monkeys around, make sure you dont feed them. The view there is amazing, can see the whole stretch of Hua Hin beach.

Our family of four visited the temple early on a Saturday morning. We decided to walk from Baan Chaitalay to Chopsticks Hill via the beach. It was a long walk but fun. We enjoyed watching the monkeys as they messed with people. It was a very hot day so make sure you have plenty of water and u can take... More

If you are staying not far away it is defiantly worth a short visit (huge Buddha statue, great view over Hua Hin, lots of cute cats, dogs and monkeys (watch out for them -they are not aggressive at all but if you lets say put your bottle of water on the ground it will be gone) and even some kind...

If you have a free afternoon it's funny to spent time there. The place is full of mnkeys and probably they'll try to steal something from you. But it was really funny.

Beautiful shrine, well worth the visit and walk through the misbehaving monkeys. These can get a little boisterous so be careful.

Khao Takiab is a cheap bus ride (20 min) from Hua Hin. Don't pay for taxis or Tuk Tuk's. You can jump on the local bus (Green open backed truck) at the cross roads in where the night market is. You just jump on and Khao Takiab is handilly the last stop. A one way trip from Hua Hin costs... More

This temple is probably my favorite in Thailand so far. The monkeys are a little intimidating, but they add character to an already gorgeous place. The view from the top is amazing. Highly recommended for those who are okay with a short hike.
