If you are visiting Hua Hin, it’s worth driving south just a little way to Khao Takiab Beach. At the southern end there is a rocky hill with a temple at the top. It’s well-known for the monkeys that roam around the temple grounds. At the foot of the hill, facing out to sea, is this 19 meter high Standing Buddha. It has been photographed many times from the beach by tourists, but I bet you have never seen it from this angle.
