Giant standing Buddha on Khao Takiab hill in the far southern reaches of Hua Hin, Thailand. The hillside is also famous for its bands of roving wild monkeys, which have perfected the art of snatching bags from anyone carrying food. Hua Hin is located on the Gulf of Thailand, less than three hours south of Bangkok. It is also the location of the summer palace of the Royal Family and as such, has long been a popular holiday weekend destination for Thais. Most visitors agree that the stretch of beach in the vicinity of Khao Takiab Hill is the most beautiful in Hua Hin.

Now THAT is really beautiful. I guess when I tire of India (but I think that will not happen), I should pop over to Thailand. I’d go to this place for sure.
It’s a very nice resort town in Thailand, Bibi. But I hear you about never tiring of India. I must get back there at some point.
