Chopsticks Hill (Khao Takiab), Hua Hin

3.8
#2 of 14 in Historic Sites in Hua Hin
Climb to the top of Chopsticks Hill (Khao Takiab) by foot, or in a taxi or tuk tuk, for commanding views of the Hua Hin coastline. Dozens of monkeys live on the mountain. Though friendly, they will try to grab food from you and rifle through your bag if you are not careful. On the side of the mountain sits a small but attractive Buddhist temple--accessed via steep stairs--and a tall, golden, standing Buddha statue can be found near the bottom of the steps.

Where to stay in Hua Hin

Catering to the urban crowd from Bangkok and international visitors, Hua Hin offers a good selection of rooms to suit most budgets. Resort-style hotels and smaller boutiques generally remain closer to the sea, with some establishments offering direct access to the beach. Step back from the coast to see a drop in prices for simpler rooms in areas where guesthouses and hotels remain the norm. Explore the area around Phetkasem Road for more options with very competitively priced rooms.
