There was so many beautiful Buddha's and things to see, beautiful view of the sea and looking back at Hua Hin. I loved relaxing near the lake too. So many things to see. Great place to visit.

Beautiful temple. Lots to see. There are staff to tell you where to go. Toilets clean. Quite a lot of steps but not that hard to get up. Good views over beach & fishing village.

Visited Wat Khao Tao twice in Sept, 1st time I went alone & 2nd time with friends from UK. Quite an easy place to find at the end of Khao Tao, just past the lake. Most of the walk is quite flat until you reach the golden turtle. If you want to see the Octagon Pavilion & Golden Buddha, be prepared for a 10min climb, the 1st stage is concrete steps, but the latter to the Buddha is forest ground, The views from the Buddha provide breathtaking views over Khao Tao, Suan Son & Khao Takiab beach bays.... take plenty of water & a camera.

A very quiet place, nothing special, but you also do nothing wrong. Just 15 minutes by car from Hua Hin. You can walk (5min) up to the big Buddha, which is on top pf the hill. If the weather is good, you have a nice few to Hua Hin. The beach is also very nice there. Better as in Hua Hin, white sand. You can also sit there to have a drink.

Even if you generally have no interest in temples, this one is extraordinary and worth a visit. The temple complex is located on the hillside of Wat Tham Khao Tao. The views of the Gulf of Thailand are beyond beautiful and you can see Hua Hin as it fades away to the north. The various shrines and the temple have an mix of Thai and Chinese influences. There are small hollows and caves featuring images of Buddha along with carvings of numerous important historical figures. If you are not in the mood to climb the step leading to the top of the hill, you can simply relax and enjoy the breezes of the sea at the sala you will find right next to the turtle shrine. Do not want to miss the views.
