About Khao Takiab in Hua Hin Thailand

Once the holiday destination of Thailand’s elite, Khao Takiab is relatively new to international tourism and still retains the charm of a small, quiet beach town.

Only 8 miles from Hua Hin, Khao Takiab offers visitors the ability to stay in quiet comfort and still take advantage of Hua Hin’s resources.

Khao Takiab is dominated by the mountain at the end of the beach road, from which it takes its name (the literal translation of Khao Takiab is “chopstick mountain”). The mountain is a major draw for visitors, lush with foliage and packed with monkeys. It towers over a tree-lined bay and beaches leading to shallow, calm waters.

Like its neighbors, the main attraction in Khao Takiab is the water, which is good for swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing, snorkeling and kayaking. Visitors can also take a boat ride to the uninhabited island of Koh Singto, which is just 20 minutes away.

The city also offers much for those who prefer to stay on land, either exploring on foot or by bicycle. Attractions such as a statue of the well-known monk Luang Phor Thuad at Wat Huay Mongkol temple await.

Travelers can eat well in Khao Takiab, where fresh seafood is available inexpensively. The beach is lined with restaurants, making sea-side dining easy to find. The mountaintop restaurant, La Mer, is also well worth a visit.

Nightlife is more subdued, confined to several expat pubs in town and the bars inside the hotels, where live music is often playing. For more upbeat entertainment, Hua Hin is just a cab ride away.
