  • This temple is more recent. He is visited mainly by Thai. It's not worth to visit this temple and it is also not a detour worth.

  • We stopped on the way to the Monsoon Valley. Very few people that day. Liked the story of the monk and the whole setting.  more »

  • 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.

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.
