The stone slopes gently down in various directions and leads to a few different perches with both southerly and northerly views. Looming directly over the city, the hill allows you to peer down and estimate where your guesthouse is situated.

The lookouts are popular with picnicking locals, especially on weekends, and the temperature always seems to be a few degrees cooler thanks to the constant breeze. Along with a handful of food stalls, a statue of King Rama VII and some wandering peacocks complete the experience. Every evening around sundown, several hardy locals jog or cycle up the steep, winding road that leads to the top. Along the way is a small temple that serves as welcome spot for a breather.


How to get there
Head west on Chomsin Road (Hua Hin Soi 70) and keep going straight at the crossroads, from where the road narrows and begins to wind up the hill.
