We are six kilometers south of the town Hua Hin
in the small village of Khao Takiab.
From our beach you can see Khao Takiab mountain with its most distinct feature, a very impressive golden colored,
20 meters high Buddha statue overlooking the sea.
Khao Takiab is a beautiful and relaxed place to stay, quieter than Hua Hin, with a great sandy beach and a good number of seaside restaurants.
Yesterday, Jim and I took the truck taxi and then walked to the statue.
Even in the early morning it was already very warm.
This is a town where there are still lovely resorts but mostly it is where
the villagers live.
The Golden Standing Buddha is really very impressive.
I climbed up the 152 steep stairs to take my photos.
What a view, it was so worth the climb.

You could walk the several km's when the
tide is low.
