Some six kilometers south of Hua Hin lies the small village of Khao Takiab. From Hua Hin beach you can see Khao Takiab mountain with its most distinct feature, a very impressive golden colored 20 meters high Buddha statue overlooking the sea.
Wat Khao Lad temple
On top of Khao Takiab hill, also known as monkey mountain or Chopstick hill is Wat Khao Lad temple, which is also known as the monkey temple, because of the many monkeys that live there.
The 20 meter Buddha statue is very beautiful and should not be missed if you visit the town of Hua Hin, Thailand.
