The day we visited was quite overcast which we were grateful for as there are hundreds of steps to climb to the top, but the views and the funny monkeys are well worth it. Once at the top you pay 50 baht to be given a bucket of peanuts. Now these monkeys are not stupid and as soon as they... More

Kids favorite part of Thailand (so far). We found them all to be well behaved for the most part and we really enjoyed feeding them once we got over our fear. They have intimidating eyes and sharp teeth. There was a woman selling the buckets of bananas who seemed to help keep them acting with good manners. She did have... More

It has a very good view of Hua Hin since it is on top of the hill. there's plenty of monkeys roaming around the hill but they are not aggressive to the visitors.

If you're in Hua Hin, I would definitely take a quick trip here. You can do the whole thing in 2 hours and the monkeys are really fun to watch.

The monkeys are so friendly and cute. They are mischieveous, so watch your stuff! The monkeys will take peanuts from your hand every so gently and sit... More

Went there with my three years old and my wife. Didn't go up to the top cause there were tons only monkeys bagging for food at the bottom. My son wasn't even interested, as I thought he would get a kick out of them. Along the stairs up there were tons of venders selling a bunch of junk. So crowded,... More

Walked along the beach to monkey island, walked to the top, you are being watched and you don't know it, don't think you can scare the bigger monkeys, they've seen it all before, and they will show you there teeth to let you know, just walk by, DO NOT carry any food while around them, nothing you can do will...

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
