An interesting place worth visiting to get an impression of the culture. But the place is very trashy and stinky. Many poor and thin strays and monkeys. Culture, religion, poverty and egoism clashes at this place.

This is a drive to a temple on a hill, then around 200 steps up to the temple itself. The views are great but not much more. The monks that lived here have long since gone but the monkeys remain, hundreds of them. Their 'sanctuary' is very run down and not a pleasant stroll. A shop sells corn so that... More

Great surrounding view. It's easy to walk around and to visit the high standung Budda and the Chinese temple

The temple is on top of the hill, small and not interesting inside, but when you are on top, can have good view of the city. Hill is full of monkeys, highly careful since these monkey would jump to you and rob all your foods and drinks.

We went to visit this temple past where the fishing vessels bring their catch daily. You see monkey's on the way up and see a lot more when you get to the top. The view from the temple back over Hua Hin is excellent. My girlfriend fed the monkey's that seemed to come from everywhere. Well worth a visit to... More

We visited the Monkey Temple by pure chance and was not disappointed, It was not clean but with some many monkeys that's not surprising. The temple is quite unique and the 131 steps are an opportunity for a bit of keep fit Lol. The views from the two temples are amazing and gives a real sense of how expansive Hua... More

The so called monkey temple. Not very clean but I guess that is to be expected with the 100 odd monkeys roaming about. Well worth the walk up the stairs to the actual temple for some amazing views over Hua Hin.
