2 weeks in Thailand - Wat Khao Krailas in Hua Hin (Part 2)

Thursday, May 17, 2018

This post is about the 5 day trip to Hua Hin. My father bought some tickets for a bus ride from Bangkok to there. Bangkok offers plenty of bus companies that can bring you to this city for a very reasonable price. We chose the Sombat Tour company. The ride was approximately 3 hours long and it was actually very comfortable. On the way there, I didn't sleep at all, because I wanted to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

When we arrived, we first have checked in into a hotel and then visited our great aunt. On the next day, we went to the temple Wat Khao Krailas to visit my deceased relatives. This is already my second post about this temple. You can see more pictures and information about it in my old post.

Climbing up all these stairs to reach a temple is always worth it.

We bought some flower garlands for our great grandfather and our other great aunt at the night market. This time we chose orange ones :)

You can get many different views on the hill, but the best one is the sea side.

I can't get enough of these beautiful Plumeria blossoms. This whole place is covered with them.

My father told me that this is the old entrance off the temple in the picture above. He also told me that monks still walk up the hill to enter it. I wanted to see the entrance closer so we walked to it. I found out, it wasn't too safe. Therefore, I recommend using the stairs in the front as an entrance. On the way there though, you can get an amazing view to the mountains. You should check it out when you visit this temple one day.

This is definitely my favorite temple in Hua Hin even if it needs a lot of improvement. It is the best place where you can relax and find peace at any time.

Be ready for my next post about the Hua Hin district.
