This is King Rama IV summer palace. An amazing collection of beautiful buildings spread over a small mountain range. You arrive at the palace in a cable car and wandering around in a palace with beautiful scenery

Nice complex, nice views, and many monkeys, be aware of them! On walking distance from the centre, take the road along Phetchaburi Vocational Education College and just in the right you'll find a parking with a stairs up

The park tales around 2-3 to cover with all the structures on this hilltop. At the ticket center there is a small museum which tells you what all you can see in the park.

Used to be the summer palace for the royal family. Worth a visit. Took a cable car/tram ride abt 10mins up the mountain. It’s now a museum to see the palace. Climb up the observatory for a fantastic view of Hua Hin.

A lot of walking up and down hills - keeps you fit - watch out for the monkeys when going up on the lift - they can attack. Temples on top of hills - great views.

I don't think you can do it. Photograph doesn't allowed inside palaces and buildings. But you can take photo at outdoor area.
