Wat Huay Mongkon The giant figure of Luang Pu Thuat looms above the tree line long before the car approaches the temple complex, a huge granite figure that can truly be called awesome.
Thousands of Thais flock here at weekends to pay homage to this revered monk, Luang Pu Thuat, and to pray at the pavilion dedicated to the spirits of the teak tree. Wat Huay Mongkon was home to the monk who was famed for his "miracles" and it houses the largest statue of Luang Pu Thuat in Thailand.
A whole day can be spent in this park-like setting, part exquisite gardens and part sacred temples just outside the resort town of Hua Hin. Waterfalls, streams, bridges, and small pavilions dot the area, local people sit absorbed in the peaceful surroundings or contentedly munch on the packed lunches they bring with them. What to See at Wat Huay Mongkon Temple
Off to the right hand side is a pavilion dedicated to the spirits of the woods and the trees - especially those of the teak tree. Three large statues dominate the area, behind which lies an enormous fallen teak tree, said to possess magical powers. Each statue represents different spirits and each possesses its own special magic. Supplicants kneel in front of the figures, joined hands, holding incense sticks, devoutly in front, petitioning for good luck or a special favour.
This pavilion is very colourful, the statues arrayed in a variety of clothes bought for them by those whose requests have been granted. Along the back of the pavilion hang dresses in vivid colours of pink, blue, green, and yellow, all shot with gold thread, to be purchased on receipt of the favour. Orange robes for monks can also be bought here. Giant Statue of Luang Pu Thuat

Ao Manao Is one of the most beautiful bays in Thailand. Ao means bay and Manao means lime. Both ends of the bay has a hill, Lom Muak hill to the north and Klongwahn hill to the south, so the bay is well protected from storms. In addition, there are a few islands off the shore where you can see rich marine life and swallow caves. The unique shape of Lom Muak hill and the semi-circular shape of the bay, makes Ao Manao exceptionally scenic. It features fine white sand, shallow water and gentle currents - making it the perfect get away for the whole family.
Ao Manao is not only known for its natural beauty, it's also a historical site from WWII. It's one of the locations along the Thai Gulf the Japanese invaded. They planned to use Thailand as a base when attacking the British in Burma and Malaysia. The invasion took place in the early morning of December 8th, 1941. The fight only lasted for a bit over a day and ended soon after Wing 5 commander, M. L. Pravasd Chumsai, received a direct order from the prime minister, Field Marshal Phibunsongkhram, to stop resisting. The scene of the fight was engraved on a gigantic green granite rock near the World War II museum, which is located near Lom Muak hill. It's open every weekend and public holidays. The road inside the air force base was named Chumsai in honor of the commander.
Every year on December 8th, there is a memorial service for those who lost their lives in the battle. To commemorate the event, Wing 5 also arranges a big fair called Weerakhamfair that runs for several days. There are a lot of activities throughout that period : Thai outdoor sports competitions (including Takraw, cock fighting, climbing Lom Muak hill, petanque and children's football), open-air movies, live music, exhibitions from various government offices as well as inexpensive goods and OTOP local products sale. If your legs get tired from all the walking at the fair, take a rest and order some delicious Thai food at the beer garden, where you can watch live entertainment. More (credit : aomanao.com)

Dan Sing Khon The Dan Sing Khon border is about 22 km west from Prachuap town. Other than the border post and market on the Thai side, there is not much there. The Burmese side is mountainous forest with what appears to be a small military camp a km or so from the border. Only Thais and Burmese are allowed to cross the border. The market is open daily but Saturday morning is the best day to visit. On weekdays, some of the furniture shops and plant shops are open but there are few customers. On Saturday morning there is a fresh market and many Thai and Burmese traders selling everything from dried fish and vegetables to teak furniture and cheap consumer goods. With so few visible settlements on the Burmese side, it’s a wonder where all the people come from but the market is very busy. There are also many Thais, both from the surrounding area and from Bangkok. As there are many Burmese workers employed in the fishing and construction industry on the Thai side of the border, many of these folks also come to spend some time with their compatriots and purchase Burmese goods.
