Had hired a water scooter and went to see this place. Lovely to see how the thai build their monuments for their religion. Nice small seaside cafe and restaurants as well as well as some very nice hotels that could be considered next time we at Hua Hin.

We drove up Chopstick hill mainly to see the monkeys with our 3 year old son, but were amazed by the spectacular view of Hua Hin from the top of the temple. Up by the parking area after you drive up the hill there is an area with a lot of nice shops, and this is also were we found... More

It is a pretty short but steep walk up to the temple were there is very nice views over the city. Not so much to do otherwise but the walk up is worth it. Didn't see too many monkeys on my way in the afternoon.

Visited Monkey Mountain after a morning at the Hussein Elephant Foundation as it was close to our superb hotel, Anatansilia Villas by the Sea. We hired our own private taxi from the hotel as we do not enjoy tours with 20 or more other tourists the cost of the taxi to take us to both destinations was just 1800 Baht... More

Sooo many monkeys! You can feed them if you wish, just be careful they are a little sneaky, one of them tried to open our bag whilst we weren't paying attention. But a lot of fun! Great photo opportunities at the top of the mountain :) and a few temples to visit - ensure that you aren't wearing revealing clothes... More

Locals call it Monkey Mountain because of the monkeys but it's not really a mountain. There's a colossal gold standing Buddha and a temple, with a cafe and restaurant at the bottom. It's the last stop on the green bus route.

Worth the visit to see the view over Hua Hin and escape the crowds. Get the green local taxi from the night market & then once you finish at monkey mountain walk down to the beach and see the buddha set into the cliff face there. We didn't take any food with us and although we saw lots of monkeys... More

South of the center of Hua Hin. You can reach it with a shared tuk-tuk, for 30 baht. Down the hill is a small harbour for fishing bozts, with lots of simple fish restaurants. When you walk up the hill, you will see many monkees. Watch out because some of them are agressive and will steal things, like your cellphone.... More

Extremely touristy and not a place to go if you do not like monkeys, they are everywhere, extremely bold and will approach you if you have anything on you that could be food! Best part of the visit for me was to climb the 100+ steps to the temple at the very top of the hill, which was closed at... More
