Explore Thailand’s Paradise Holiday Mecca at Khao Takiab

  • i
Tucked away beneath the shadows of Khao Takiab hill lies a mesmerizing seaside resort town that is renowned for its pristine beaches and its cultural highlights. Frequented by visitors from across the globe this idyllic paradise locale is one of the most coveted beach holiday destinations in Thailand due to the shallow waters that surround the seaside hamlet. Vast expanses of sandy beaches are in fact a hallmark of this resort town that is ideally suited for young children and beach sporting activities. Wider and flatter in nature to the beaches of nearby Hua Hin, Khao Takiab is well suited for beach football, takraw and a popular Finnish game invented by locals. Water skiing, jet skiing and parasailing are other popular sports in the area which are also known as banana boating activities. 
Kayakers can also rent gear from kayak rentals on the beachfront and explore the bay at their own pace while working up a healthy sweat. Kite surfing is another hot-pick sporting activity here as the strong gusts of wind and massive waves make for an adventurous kite surfing experience from November to January.

Those who wish to engage in beachside activities of a different nature can hop on board a horse or pony and take in the sights by galloping down the powdery beach. Visitors can soak up the sunny atmosphere and panoramic setting of the seaside town on horses and ponies and enjoy Khao Takiab in a truly unique manner.  Elephant rides and feeding encounters are also available at the venue which also houses an Elephant Camp geared for animal loving visitors who wish to engage with the gentle giants. 

 Seafood lovers can savour the best of Thai cuisine at the many seaside restaurants in Khao Takiab which range from informal eateries to fine dining restaurants. Cultural highlights include Khao Takiab temple which sits atop of Monkey Mountain with golden Buddha statues towering above the surrounding landscapes. Wat Nowkan is another must-see temple in the area while Wat Huay Mongkol house the largest sculpture of Luang Phor Thaud in the world.
Those in search of exemplary Hua Hin resorts should look no further than the Anantara Hua Hin Thailand Resort. Ideally located on a breathtaking beachfront this charming rest designed to resemble a traditional Thai village is one of the finest Hua Hin hotels in this seaside resort haven.
