Wat Khao Takiab in Hua Hin


Wat Khao Takiab is a temple located 7.5 km to the south of Hua Hin Railway Station. The temple is situated on Khao Takiab, also known as Chopstick Hill or monkey mountain on account of the large number of macaque monkeys which live on the hill.

Monkeys on Chopstick Hill

The monkeys are wild and congregate on the hill because people feed them. Be careful if you decide to buy bananas from the vendors at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the temple to feed the moneys as they can become aggressive and are known for stealing things from bags and pockets.
