Mountain and viewpoint Hin Lek Fai in Hua hin
On the mountain Khao Hin Lek Fai (Flintstone Hill also) with a height of 162 meters three kilometers from Hua hin town is a complex of six viewing platforms connected by walkways and bridges. It is believed that this is the best lookout of the city. Indeed, it offers the widest view of the coast and city, although to call it an incredibly scenic it is difficult, because it is just a city by the sea. However, the place is definitely worthy of a visit.
Except the lookout points here you will find a whole Park where you can see some exotic plants, including orchids under natural conditions. Also here strolling peacocks, inhabited by some other birds and lots of monkeys. Be careful with the monkeys: keep backpacks and bags closed, watch glasses, chains, phones and cameras. Even if you don't see monkeys around you, does not mean that they are not. They can appear unexpectedly, including to attack (see how to behave with monkeys, precautions). In the Park there is a monument to king Rama VII, and a series of stones telling the history of the city. You can also eat in the cafe upstairs.
Climbing the mountain and overcoming the route through all six viewpoints, though not require any special physical training, is still not the simple walk and have a little string up. On the visit to better lay at least a couple of hours.
