There are 3 big reasons why I wanted to visit Khao Takiab hill, or Monkey Mountain, which is located about 6 km. outside of Hua Hin beachtown:
- Sweeping views over Hua Hin beach can be seen from the top of the hill.
- Wat Khao Takiab is perched on the peak, a temple that supposedly contains one of Buddha’s teeth (although only those who pray very hard can see it).
- There is a large population of wild macaque monkeys living in the area surrounding the temple.
This was the first time I had seen monkeys roaming freely, and I found them to be surprisingly aggressive, impudently funny, and often poignantly human. I couldn’t choose just one photo to feature, but these are a few of my favourites.
