I’ve always loved monkeys and could of spent hours just sitting and watching them. I read the reviews so didn’t buy food but many people had some spare peanuts which they gave us and we really enjoyed feeding and being able to interact with the...More

Here you will see wild monkeys in the centre of the city in large groups all the way up the hill in the jungle on both sides so drive slowly. Go before 5pm because they then close the road to vehicles and only walkers allowed.

We decided to walk up here from Phuket Town, probably a bit of an error in flip flops and in the middle of a hot day! It wasn't very far (a few km), and is all paved, but with the heat it was a bit...More

Our guide suggested we go here and it was awesome. Just one regret, that we didn’t take any food with us. Make sure you take bananas and mango. They come running 😊

The monkeys are roaming free so you can enjoy the experience without the usual anxiety at their conditions. (Any monkey show should be avoided as they have to chain them constantly). These monkeys are scampering all over the road and in the bushes with their...More

Monkey Hill is in Phuket. If you mean how far from Phuket Town, it is less than 10 minutes by car, maybe a couple of kilometers away. I’m not sure of the price as I don’t recall, but I can tell you that the hill closes to... More
