Go here for the views. It's about 20 minutes away from Hua Hin (Centara Grand resort). Taxis are easily available. It's a bit of a long walk and many stairs to reach but the views are worth it! It could do with some maintenance.

While the temple is not one of particular note, it is worth the trip to the top just to see the view. However, you do need to climb about 300 steps to reach the top.

Living nearby, it is worth several visits with views as good as Khao Takiep, into all directions, yet very tranquil. Some 250-300 steps from end of Soi 12 of Khao Takiep, back from stairs opposite is good for physical exercise! Negotiate the dogs with monks...More
