Climb to the top of Wat Khao Takiap by foot, or in a taxi or tuk tuk, for commanding views of the Hua Hin coastline. Dozens of monkeys live on the mountain. Though friendly, they will try to grab food from you and rifle through your bag if you are not careful. On the side of the mountain sits a small but attractive Buddhist temple--accessed via steep stairs--and a tall, golden, standing Buddha statue can be found near the bottom of the steps. For Wat Khao Takiap and beyond, use our Hua Hin trip planner to get the most from your Hua Hin vacation.
Wat Khao Takiap reviews
Great views of the Hua Hin coastline. The temple itself is like many others you may have see in Thailand. Lots of monkeys so if you are not comfortable with them around, best to avoid more »
We visited this place more than 10 times in the past 25 years,but it is not worth to go there any more. more »
Loved this place. Full of quirky additions. Part built into natural rock formation. The temple and huge Buddha on top is astounding. The view from up there is incredible and my personal tip is dont go to this region without watching the sunset from its peak. And hear the bells ringing out the day and in the night along with of course chanting from the monks in temple.Please, although no entry fee, make any donation possible regardless how small as every little helps.
Well worth a visit. Good view from the top of the steps. Monkeys everywhere. You can feed them and let them climb on you but they are not the cleanest of animals. If you get any food out they just steal it and run off
