The massive local crowd is a testament to the temple although a tad out of town. Some light shopping and food are available on the left building. A tip, do plan a trip here together with a visit to the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard or now known as Monsoon Valley Vineyards as its only a short 20km away from the... More

The place focuses around the large monk statue, which is very impressive. The grounds have some incredibly detailed elephant statues and a wonderfully intricate temple. There isn't much else there and not worth going to unless you are I. The area already, unless you are going for purely religious reasons. Lots of school children but they are happy with a... More

This temple is very big and very popular with tourists. On the day we visited there were at least 20 double decker tourist buses there. The temple itself was very impressive and there were alot of supporting facilities there as well. The normal tourist trinket shops to restaurants and mini shopping centre. The walking trail near the lake under the... More

We took a tuk tuk from the city centre late in the afternoon and it was the perfect time to go as when we got there, there were only a few people so the space was all ours! It is a very impressive Buddha. There is not a lot to do there but well worth the half hour drive by... More

The Huay Mongkol temple was close to our hotel, and was pretty to visit. For anyone who hasn´t been to a temple, it is worth a visit as you get to see how seriously the Thai people take their faith.

From a distance it looks really interesting but when you get there it's overcrowded and not well kept. Once again the monkeys are a pain, I feel sorry for tourists in Huai Hin as if this is the best to offer they are missing out. How can it be the 4th most popular..!! Further down the road is Wat Tham... More

The temple is dedicated to a famous Thai monk and consists of a huge meditating statue of the monk on an elevated platform with steps leading to the top in each of the four directions. The main steps are flanked by two wooden statues of the monk seated on a three headed elephant one on each side of the steps.... More

Authentic place, not that much to see though. 15-30 min stop here when going to vineyeard. Go to the Monk, take a look, then go to the wooden 3-headed elephant, and go under it many times. There is a sign in thai, and only thing that can be understood is number 3, so we went under the elephant 3 times... More

My son and I took a scooter and drove to the Temple. It is around 20 km from center of Hua Hin. It is really impressive.
