The boys thought the monkeys were amazing, they weren't as scary as I thought but don't carry any food. It is a bit scrappy and unkept but so,is a lot of Thailand. Worth a climb up the steps to the temple at the top for the views across Hua hin.

A steady walk up many stairs led to a temple at the top. Monkeys, cats and dogs everywhere. An interesting look into Buddhist culture. Great views of Hua Hin coastline

We were there on a rainy day but no problem, you can walk all the stairs up to the small temple and have a very wide view. When you come down you can visit the Chinese temple but be aware of all the monkeys!! Especially in this area there are hundreds of them, you have the feeling it are all... More

After about 45 mins to 1 hour drive from Hua Hin town. Along the way some up and down road before reaching the foot of steps leading to the temple at the top. There are many monkeys around at the foot and along the steps upto the temple, so do be careful of your belongings. The monkeys will leave you... More

The area is not so clean and the temple is messy! The monkeys are fun and expecting you to feed them! You come here either to see the monkeys, the view or to pray!

A lot of cute monkeys, nice view. Nothing else. Monkeys are friendly, not aggressive. Monkeys are interested of bananas only.

If you like to see buddhist culture you should visit this place. You can climb many steps to up hill, and there are many buddhist temple. You can make a donation for temple. There was also a lady who put us goodluck bracelets.

Had a lovely walk to Khao Takiab, get great views of Hua Hin from this spot. Would recommend going earlier in the morning as it was starting to get quite busy by around 10am and it was very warm if walking. There were lots of monkeys, which were fun to see ( I probably wouldn't get too close though) there... More
