We walked up from the beach past the giant statue looking out to see and carried on up the steep steps to the temple and the monkeys. There is a road that you can drive up that gets you close to the top. The temple...More

We had the best time on this mountain. Make sure you take taxi up there and don’t bring any food or the monkeys will be onto you! So picturesque.

This quiet place offers a good choice of sightseeings, interesting temple and good restaurants. Dont miss the Kao Tao lake, where you can walk confortabely around, about 30 minutes, relaxing walk with the beautiful watershrine.

The place is falling to pieces, it is a shambles except for the temple on top of the hill. While the monkies are initially interesting it really is not worth visiting and it stinks

The beach was ok and less crowded than Hua Hin beach. I did not like when we walked to the hill because lots of monkey wait for us there and some of them are aggressive!! I will not go there again.

A short ride from the centre of His Hin, best known for its stunning views along the coast and for the monkey colony that lives here. The monkeys can be quite aggressive if there is food or a water bottle to steal so great them...More

We always take visitors to visit here. They start off by climbing the steps to the temple to take in the fantastic views, and then go down the hill a little to feed the monkeys. Always finish the visit with a walk down to the...More

No entrance fee and definitely worth the trip. Take heed of other advice here by all means, but don't let it put you off going - go to the top temple, great views. Also go down to the Chinese temple, it is very... More

OK, I am not sure what you mean by "Monkey Island", some people call it Monkey Mountain, but if you go up the steep, steep winding road all the way to the top to where the steps to the Temple on the very top of the mountain... More
