Highlights

Hua Hin Khao Takiab

Khao Takiab
It means “Chopstick Mountain” or maybe you heard it being referred to as Monkey Mountain. The mountain delivers a panoramic view of the area. There are plenty of temples in Khao Takiab but the most popular one is Khao Takiab temple itself. Watch out for the monkeys though as this place is considered their home, so be careful as they will grab anything, cameras, handbags, food, and drinks. You can also walk to the top of the mountain or hire a taxi to take you there. It’s up to you how you want to enjoy the view. It is also the ideal place for taking a great photo! There are around 150 steps to reach to the temple, it’s an amazing view from up there, and you surely don’t want to miss it!

Hua Hin Cicada Market

Cicada Market

This night market is all about handmade crafts and art in general. It’s an open-air market and it is held every weekend.
