Decent for a 1.15km trail but nothing spectacular. Trail leads to Ao Nang beach. Vantage points are not breathtaking. Do if you have time or enjoy nature, but don’t specially make time for it.

You never know what you might see in the wild. We were very lucky to see several north pigtailed macaques and several families of mono cangrejeros. The baby monkeys were so cute! Beautiful!!🙉🙊🙊If you are lucky to discover them too, respect the natural beauty of...More

This trail is a health hazard. It is steep in places and can be slippery when wet. Don't do it in the heat of the day and there are'nt always monkeys on the trail. There is a nice beach and a resort at the end...More

You definately need a good head for heights and also good sturdy footwear. The trail is steep and rickety in places especially the handrails. Water is a must to take with you, i did the trail early in the morning when the sun had just...More

The trail itself is not very beautiful, nor did we get to see monkeys on the way or back, but the beach at the end of the trail is beautiful, quiet and definitely worth the walking. The trail requires a little physical fitness, and may...More

It was the way to get in and out from our beach resort and I should say we haven't seen the monkeys on the path, maybe because we walked late at night or too early in the mornings. Easy to climb, but you should wear...More

These little buggers are hard to find. We did see them on our last day however. The trail is steep and slippery, took my breath away and got the leg muscles burning. If you are unstable on your legs please don't do this trail as...More

If you face the ocean walk all the way you can to your left. Eventually there is a small bridge over a creek and then the wooden steps going up. Quite steep but there is always a handrail. About 8 flights of stairs means you...More

We stayed at the lovely Centara private resort and walked the monkey trail to Ao Nang beach daily....as much for the sites as a nice cardio. There are days with no monkeys, so don’t be disappointed! As well, be careful especially if it rains. This...More

The monkeys are still there! We saw staff members chasing them with slingshots several times. One morning at the breakfast buffet we saw a monkey sneak close to a table and grab someone's roll, the scamper up on the roof to... More
