There is a beautiful giant golden sitting Buddha with a view of the whole bay. You can adventure yourself in the cave located under the temple on the mountain. You can visit the very small fisherman village just nearby. It seems to be out of time.

2. Wat Khao Tao is a very famous temple and walking distance from the center. Accessible by the beach or the road, this temple is very active with regular local events like a farmer market, Buddha festivals, meditation center, and so on.

3. Wat Khao Takiap is famous for its monkeys kind of ruling the place. The temple is located on the other side of the bay, compare to the center. A taxi will bring you there or a long walk on the beach followed by a strong climb will bring you there. You can feed the monkeys which are fun to do ones. The view on the top is absolutely amazing, peaceful place to be.

Artisan and local markets

1. Cicada market is a weekend night art and handicraft market. Located about 10 kilometers from the center, this market will feed your eyes and empty your wallets. Many beautiful locals craft and artists join together for your own pleasure. There is usually some Jazz bands that put some nice atmosphere around. There is a huge street food market available too.

2. Hua Hin night market is an older market located couples of kilometers away from Cicada market. This market is more like tourist market with products coming from all Thailand around. You will find some pocket tuk-tuk you can bring as souvenirs.

3. Huahin Artist village is a community of artist that join together to perform their art. Located about 20 kilometers from the center, this place will bring out of time with many different artists that paint, sculpt and play with materials. As usual, art is expensive but sometimes, it worth it and Hypnok Retreat Center let you judge of this.

Biking and walking

1. Walking is a good idea to relax a and visit around. The center is located at the beginning of this five-kilometer beautiful beach. It is very quiet and you can find yourself totally alone this bay. Do not panic, just enjoy this moment just for you. There is a lake just behind the center which is part of a royal project. A running way was made all around the lake to run or walk the two and a half kilometers around. It is majestic a sunset.

2. Biking is another idea if you like to bike of course. Hua Hin is pretty flat and easy to bike or can be demanding if you adventure yourself on cliffs and mounts around. You can rent a bike at the center or the resort too.

3. Motorbike is available to rent if you like to cover more distance than with a bike. It is a nice way to visit around and allow to be on your own too. Just remember safety first and wear a helmet all the time on the bike. It is very tempting to ride hair in the air but Thai people are driving fast and not so well.

Driving directions from Bangkok

The center is located in the south of Hua Hin about 200 kilometers from Bangkok. It is recommended to stay on the highway, pass Hua Hin, and turn left to the direction of Khao Tao. This way avoids the crossing of Hua Hin and eventual traffic. You can count about 200 kilometers and three hours from Bangkok.

Arrival by bus

There are buses that go to Hua Hin about every hour from airports and Bangkok (at Mo Chit bus station) and you do not need to book before, just go. You can get the information directly at the airport or the hotel’s concierge will be able to guide you too. You can consider about 300 THB for the trip to Hua Hin bus station. From there, you can take a taxi to the center in Khao Tao and should cost about 400 THB. It takes about three hours by bus and another 40 minutes to reach the center. Hypnok Retreat Center can come to pick you up at the bus station if you prefer and will cost 200 THB per person with a minimum of two people.

Arrival by shuttle

Vans are the most convenient way to move around in Thailand. It is pretty cheap and the van can drop you very near the center. You can take a van from Bangkok (Mo Chit van section or Ekamai van station) or the international airport. Take the direction 'HuaHin Khao Tao' and stop at 'Baan Khao Tao' at the village entrance.

Hypnok Retreat Center can come to pick you up at the van station free of charge. Call them when you are there. Most of the vans can drop you directly at the center and will cost you a nice smile to the driver.

Arrival by train

The railway in Thailand is pretty old but well developed. It is an adventure on its own as you really mix with locals and it is pretty safe too. The price is cheap from Bangkok Hua Lamphong train station to Hua Hin city center. From there, you can take a taxi to the center in Khao Tao and should cost about 300 THB. It takes about three and a half hours by train and another 30 minutes to reach the center. Hypnok Retreat Center can come to pick you up at the bus station if you prefer and will cost 200 THB per person with a minimum of two people.

Arrival by taxi

Some taxis will be happy to bring you the center directly from the airport or your hotel. Depending on your location, you can consider about 1,500 THB to 2,000 THB for the transfer. Be careful since some taxis are scams and will ask you much more than that. You can book a GrabTaxi (Uber-like) since it is very convenient and safe. It should take about three hours to reach the center.
