We visited here as part of a day trip through Khao Lak Vista Tours. We spent about an hour here which was more than enough time. A lovely temple with interesting artefacts and lots of history. Managed to get a few photos with the many wild moneys strolling about. Ladies need to have their shoulders covered so make sure you... More

This is a nice place, the cave hosts some images of Buddah and then you have the monkeys around. It is not allowed to feed them inside the caves but some people just buy the fruits and bring them inside, just watch out as they come and grab the bag from you... I did not see any danger but just... More

This was another attraction included in the day tour, although you do have to pay 20 baht to enter, and 5 baht to use the toilet. There are steps inside that you can walk up and see all the monkeys floating around. The statues and sculptures are definitely worth a visit. Definitely recommend this to anyone who does the Khao...

This attraction was part of a larger tour that I was part of, so it was the only reason why we came to the Monkey Cave / Buddha Cave. Not much to see, a reclining Buddha inside a cave, and lots of monkeys around the place. I avoided touching or feeding any of the monkeys, a couple of them looked... More

We went on the Natural Khao Lak discovery tour, I tried to leave my review on their page but for some reason I can't.. so I'll leave it here. First off, the tour guide was awesome, very knowledgable and friendly. The turtle sanctuary, the memorial, the bamboo rafting and the Buddha cave was awesome, would do those again in a... More

Visited the Monkey temple on the way back from James Bond Island. Entrance fee of 20 Baht. Found it serene and felt a sense of divinity. You can walk up the stairs to explore the deeper section of the cave. This is normally a time filler. Did not see many monkeys in the afternoon.

Although people get caught up with the monkeys the temple cave is beautiful. The large reclining buddha must be 10metres long and as you walk up the steps there are beautiful rock formations and even bats. It's a cool spot on a hot day to sit and think. Not fussed with monkeys I find them aggressive luckily we arrived late... More

Well worth visiting and there is many wild monkeys. Many vendors outside the temple were selling bananas and peanuts to be fed to monkeys. There is a also nice cafe selling fruit smoothies on the temple ground.
