It's a nice temple complex like many other spread all over Thailand, nothing outstanding like White temple in Chiang Rai or Wat Arun in Bangkok...

Very nice view point. better to ride a motorcycle or car to get there. Beware there are hundreds of monkeys at the top of the mountain, so just make sure you are not carrying any visible foods. these monkeys could be aggressive if they see foods in your hands... they snatched a bottle of soft drink from my backpack though......

5 mins drive from Hua Hin centre, You can drive right up to the top otherwise its a tiring walk in the heat. If being up close to wild monkeys is your thing you will have a great time otherwise its just a photo opportunity.

We went there with small kids and we all enjoyed that. Not really the temple, actually we did not leave the car, but we enjoyed seeing hundrets of monkeys surrounding the road. It was awesome. Braver travellers can walk between them, feed them, but for family with small kids is better to observe them from a car. Very nice!

It's a bit old but got very nice view of Hua Hin. If you visit Khao Takiab it's recommended to go up the stairs to worship and look at the panoramic view.

This temple is really nice. The top provides excellent views of the city and ocean. The bells around the temple are really cool and provide cool photo opportunities. Watch out for the monkeys though, they will steal drinks from your hand or try to take your bag. Definitely worth going to in Hua Hin.

The panoramic view of Hua Hin alone is worth the climb up to the top of the temple. Nothing much else to do here except observing the large crowd of monkeys but do be wary of them and keep your small bags hidden or in the car.

Easy to get there from the city centre by the green car taxi and very reasonable. A great spot to have lunch as well, beautiful beach there and great to see the Standing Buddha and all of the monkeys.

The view is lovely from the top. Very serene. Lots of monkeys and dogs (be careful haha). It's a very peaceful place, more so if you are Buddhist and have come to pray. I think you can even get a thai massage at a little section. A very nice experience.
