  • Visit fast enough. This monk in the reputation of turning saltwater into freshwater. At the bottom of the wooden elephants must go under 3 times and touch his Willy so that it brings you happiness. Another very beautiful and well maintained temple across the street. You can donate or buy gold leaf to stick on the various monks in statues of course. Address of finding on the roads Monsoon vyneards vineyards. You can do it all in half a day in a Taxi pickup Bush.

  • Beautiful and big temple located about 15 kilometers from the clock tower. The temple is created in honor of the Saint or Monk who lived more than 100 years. I recommend having time at the time of visiting. Relax, pray and enjoy Hua Hin. I recommend going early and returning to buy pineapples, in this area they are the most tasty and economical.
  • The place is very pleasant to visit. We visited on a Tuesday morning, many tourists visited the place. You can find here also the statue of King Taksin the great.
  • Very nice and impressive. Popular destination for the Thai people but also for me.
  • Budhist temple with panoramic scene. You can pray at this temple. Many spot to pray and if you don't you can enjoy sit near the local canteen. You can enjoy the "buah lontar" and others at this canteen.
  • Much people and not so much to see, but important to bhuddists.
