Temples with a view in Hua Hin
Wat Khan Takiap Hua Hin is located on a hilltop, which means there are stairs to climb, but at the top awaits an incredible view of the coastline of Hua Hin. The shrine itself is colourful and sculptural with rainbow dragons and a golden buddha. You can access the temple from the beach or the street and at the top you’ll see and meet some curious and mischievous monkeys. If you’re lucky you might be able to get a blessing from a monk while you’re there.
Temples off the beaten path in Hua Hin
Wat Khao Phithak Saksit Hua Hin is quiet and quaint. It’s definitely off the beaten path and we recommend going if you are on a temple pilgrimage in Hua Hin. Some visitors have mentioned the wild bees that are at the temple and that due to the lack of visitors unfortunately it is falling into disrepair. The temple itself is nestled on a rock face surrounded by greenery and once inside there is a beautiful framed view Hua Hin and the rolling hills.
Temples located in the city of Hua Hin
Wat Hua Hin is located inland in the urban area of Hua Hin, yet it is traquil and quiet. It is one of Hua Hin’s main temples and is visited by many locals. It is a good temple to visit if you want to incorporate it into shopping. It’s nearby markets, shops and restaurants. It is like a smaller version of some of the main temples you would come across in Bangkok.
