Photographer's Note

Khao Takiap
This hill is situated at the southern end of Hua Hin, only 4 kilometres from the town. It can be easily reached by local minibus. Visitors can go up the hilltop to enjoy a birds eye view of Hua Hin, which is one of the delightful views either during the day or night.

There is a temple called Wat Khao Takiap situated on top of the hill. The giant golden Buddha Statue standing against the cliff as you can see has become a landmark of Khao Takiap. The height of the Buddha is 17 meters tall and standing in a "calm the sea" poisture.

Whats in a name?
According to the locals, the name itself actually means "Chopstick Hill" because it resemble the four-sided blunt ends of chopsticks.
