Pleasant shaded monastery on the hill at the south end of Hua Hin beach. Main feature is the tall Buddha statue, and the monkeys that are fed there. Always be cautious of monkeys – they can move very fast and will grab and steal anything!...More

Don't go if you are scared of monkeys, as they are everywhere. You can either walk up from the beach, the way I did or drive up from the other side. Compared to other Thai temples this is a small temple with flight of stairs....More

This temple is not very well kept. There were also nuns that kept asking me to donate to the temple even though I had already done so inside. Lots of monkeys around, but luckily not at the temple itself, but on the road and parking....More

.....all over the place already down the hill. The Wat itself is pretty run down and ugly, not really worth going there if you want to see something extraordinary. Bit disappointing apart from hundreds of curious but also aggressive monkeys.......

Nothing special about the temple, about 100+ steps to the top. You can enjoy spectacular view of the coast line at Hua Hin from here. Windy. A lot of monkeys around. Behind the hill, a good seafood restaurant, named La Mer that comes with solo...More
