Photo Diary: Chinese Temple in the Khao Takiab District of Hua Hin ,Thailand

On the next day we visited the next hill across from Wat Khao Krailas which is located in the Khao Takiab District (means "Chopsticks Hill") of Hua Hin. You can reach the hill by feet, with a Tuk Tuk or a car. My father's friend was so kind and brought us up there.

There is a temple on top of a hill but we didn't visit this one. Instead we visited the Khao Takiab Chinese Temple which is a few walks away from the other one.

On the way to the Chinese temple you will come across lots of cute and cheeky macaques hence they also call it the "Monkey Mountain".  It was a fascinating experience to see them very close, because they are roaming around free and they don't live behind a fence like in zoos. I took a bunch of pictures of them :). If you carry something with you then make sure to keep it close to you, especially cameras and bags, or other precious things. They are able to take anything away from you that catch their eyes. If you want to feed them they have a stall where you can buy a bucket of food for the monkeys.

As you reach the temple you will spot many statues and pagodas there. The first statue that I've seen was the golden laughing Buddha Budai. You can throw some coins into the Buddha's belly button. It suppose to bring you luck.

Next was Guanyin, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy who rides a dragon.

And her again with multiple arms and heads.

Besides the colorful and golden statues you will get an amazing view from that temple to the sea.

This place is definitely a "must go to" place when you visit Hua Hin. It's not too crowded and it's quiet. Personally, the monkeys were the highlight of this trip. Since I didn't visit the other temple on the hill I will plan on doing this next time when I come back to Hua Hin. A few days later it went back to Bangkok to spend my last days visiting Ayutthaya.
