Another place you can’t miss while visiting Hua Hin is Khao Takiab temple which located on the Takiab hill, southern part of Hua Hin which far from the city around 14 kms.

After parking in the spacious parking lot, you will be greeted by a group of monkeys! They do not afraid of people, in fact they will scare us by grabbing our belongings without our cautious. We recommend you to bring down only necessary thing and avoid item which look similar to plastic bag because monkeys think there is a food inside then they will try to grab it from you.
The first place you will see after enter the temple is a kiosk selling the flower, candle and incense stick for worship inside.
The stairs to climb up to Takiab hill and Kailas hill are not a long way but for elderly people may find it a bit tired to walk up. Again after we climb up the stairs we will meet another group of monkeys sitting along the stairway. Please beware of those monkeys because some of them are wild monkeys when you walk close to them. On top of the hill you will find Khao Takiab chapel. From here you can allow yourself to enjoy the fantastic view of Hua Hin city from the balconies around the chapel.
