A Great View of the city and harbour areas
Feb 2020
This is a must visit - to get to the top there is a rail way lift which costs 50 bahts - 30 up and 20 down. There is a route to walk but the hill is very steep and there are many monkeys to navigate which can be intimidating by their sheer number. At the top there are so many view points you are spoiled for choice. The hill top is an active temple so you need to respect the various shrines. A good time to visit is early morning for the quiet and late evening for the sunset.

Cable car, queues and mellow monkeys
Dec 2019 • Couples
There are some fantastic views at the top of Tang Kuan Hill, and the 30 baht elevator ride is well worth it if your legs are a bit weary. You can get a great view of Songkhla, the lake and the beaches from here, and the chedi and surrounding structures at the top also make for some interesting wandering around.

It was very crowded on the day we went, and there was a 20 to 30 minute wait for the elevator both up and down. If I did it again, I’d go up by elevator and then come back on foot. Much is made of the monkeys in other reviews, but I found them to be very mellow, probably because we humans outnumbered them on the busy day that I was there. On a quiet day, they might be a bit cheekier.

Splendid view of sea and lake
Dec 2019 • Solo
Nested between the sea and the Songkhla lake, this hill offers uniquely attractive sceneries, a sacred Chedi, and a vividly red brick Sala. Easy to reach from Samila.

Good place to see Songkhla from above, unfortunately the cable car was not working at the day. At least we can see the city from above.

30 baht for a nice view
Jun 2019 • Friends
The hill is not very high but anyway, you can take a funicular for 30 baht and in 5 min you are on top of the Tang Kuan hill. What can you see there? Songkhla city on the bottom, lighthouse and Royal pagoda complex. Royal pagoda and lighthouse were built at the end of XIX century. Half an hour is more than enough to explore the hill.

Panoramic view of Songkhla City
Jun 2019 • Family
Tang Kuan Hill have many monkeys, However No monkeys to be found at the top of the hill. Only saw them at the bottom, along the pathway etc. We took the funicular to the top of the hill. There is a temple, a love-lock wall, great view point of the City of Songkhla.

Historical viewpoint of Songkhla
May 2019 • Friends
The best time to visit Tang Kuan Hill is sunrise or sunset. The macaque monkeys will be out in full force. Be careful. They can be quite naughty. If you are early or late enough you will probably be the only one. It is not a difficult walk. Along the way you will see Sala Phra Wihaan Daeng, a European-style pavilion built by order of King Rama V after he visited in the late 19th century. At the top of the hill there is a lighthouse and a chedi. The views over Songkhla and surroundings are magnificent.
