Love feeding animals garbage that isn't good for then just to get close to them? Love seeing creatures chained up by the necks for your enjoyment?! Then come here, you'll feel disgusted with yourself!

Honestly it's just a bunch of monkeys who have been over fed . Nothing special unless you have never seen a monkey. Also with tons of monkeys comes tons of monkey poop! I wouldn't go out of your way to visit.

This was a fantastic thing to see. Loads of monkeys and a few people keeping an eye on the situation. The only problem was the people feeding them in order to get pictures. The monkeys were becoming quite annoyed at the visitors teasing them with...More

Such a cool place to visit, we saw hundreds of monkeys & were lucky enough to be there for feeding time which was entertaining. Some of the smaller ones will let you touch them but be careful as they can bite. The lookout at the...More

This hill is a must-do when visiting Phuket. We went on our last day, otherwise would have definitely gone again. There are hundreds of monkeys on the hill hanging out, grooming each other, and playing in the trees. It's incredible to see these animals in...More

Let me begin by saying you must be responsible for yourself and your children when you go here. There are no bars, fences or trainers around to keep you from the monkeys or the monkeys from you. They are everywhere and doing exactly what you...More

By bike you can only visit till 6pm, I think. Then the ramp closes but you can still walk - it's not a short one. Also, when darkness falls, the monkeys retreat to the forest and you cant see them.
