Great Ushastik (Wat Na Yang) and Black Babyshcha (Puk Tien Beach)

I keep writing about Hua sightsHina, although it would be more correct to say Cha Ama, because this city will be closer to the places described. Simply, he is not so well known, and usually everyone goes to Hua Hin, so let it be so for now.

Last time I talked about amazing a mountain of batsfrom which these mice are falling like living smoke. However, it is not a bad idea to combine this trip with viewing several more sights: the Temple of the Great Ushastik and the beach with Black Babyshche, in order not to ride for nothing. And on the way back to Hua Hin you can still see the notorious Black Monk (Wat Huay Mongkol)

Temple boat

Since the mice fly out of the mountain only in the evening,first you can go around all around. Therefore, first of all we are going to Puk Tien beach and on the road to the left will be a temple in the form of a boat. From the road you can see its roof, and the fact that you notice this boat is already near.

Beach Puk Tien and Black Babyshcha

Pak Tien / Puk Tien / Pik Tien beach (or something inthis spirit in Russian transcription) is located from Cha Ama towards Bangkok. He is known for the expense of a large statue, usually called the Black Babischa. She stands knee-deep in water and pulls a hand to the statue of a young guy, love, however. At low tide, you can get closer to her, without wetting her feet, as well as to the three islets that are next to her. On the islands, the figures are smaller, and the woman herself is 5–6 meters high.

What does this mean, and why in the water, I do notI know. There is little information about this in Russian. I read only that they are characters from the works of the famous Thai poet Sunthon Fu, who wrote about the ordinary life of an ordinary person. And the women of the goddess are some kind of goddess, or water demon, who has fallen in love with a young guy.

There are figures not only in water

There are figures not only in water

The beach is quiet and calm, relatively fit.for swimming (there are stones). Tourists here only Thai and mostly on weekends. We were there on weekdays and all the cafes were empty, in connection with which there was a funny incident. We went by car, and she was with tinted windows, that is, it is not visible that there are farangs in her. Near one cafe on the car two women barkers simply pounced. And you would see what their faces were when we got out of the car. :) The thing is that they did not understand a word in English, and the menu was also all in Thai. How did they not want to mess with us, and lose face from misunderstanding :)

Great Ushastik and the temple of Wat Na Yang

The temple of Wat Na Yang in common is called VelikiUshastikom, because the main reason for which they go to this temple is a giant figure of an eared monk sitting on a pedestal. Unfortunately, on my arrival, the monk was repaired, and he was covered with forests and covered with a roof (apparently from the rain). Now everything is in order, it has been completed, painted, it shines with novelty and pleases visitors with its appearance.

By and large, besides the Great Ushastik there is no more to see there, the temple is the most common Thai. But since he is right next to a mountain of batsthen why not.

If you want to visit this place, you can stay in Hua Hin, for example, budget hotelwhere we stayed. Alternatively, search other hotels in Hua Hin on this link.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
