Mountain and temple Khao Takiab Hua hin
The mountain and the temple of Khao Takiab (Monkey Mountain also) although it is called the mountain of monkeys, they are gone a long time ago. Rather, almost gone. Only a few elderly monkey lives in a frame on the top of the mountain.
But interesting mountain in the first place, not monkeys, and several religious buildings located on it. On the slope face to Hua hin is a 20-meter high Buddha statue. And if you walk or drive on the mountain, on its top at a height of 272 meters, you can see the Thai-Chinese temple Wat Khao Lat. Also on the mountain there are several viewing platforms, overlooking the coast of Hua hin.
The mountain is located on the southern border of Hua hin, South of the mountains along the coast stretches a great quiet beach with palm trees at Khao Takiab Beach. At the entrance to the hill is a market where you can eat fresh seafood.
Overall, this place occupies a worthy position among all the attractions of Hua hin and we definitely recommend a visit. Well, there is a temple in the heart of Hua hin, and to reach it during a leisurely walk on the beach.
Hours: around the clock, the temple is open during daylight hours only
Entrance fee: free, donations are welcome
How to get there: to get to the mountain very easy, as the base of the mountain is the end point of the taxi, moving from Hua hin airport through the city to the South. The fare is 20 baht. The cost of a taxi from town to here will cost 150 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate). On the mountain will have to walk, the ascent starts right from the beach. Another climb to the second temple is a little farther from the beach, and there you can climb even in transport. Mountain Khao Takiab on the map
