Not too far from the city center, up the hill provides a great view of the Hua Hin coastline. Theres a temple which has lots of monkeys. Be careful with the monkeys some have known to bite. A worthwhile place to visit.

If you love museum then you must see this point. Not tired to climb a short stage, and from Hill you can see over all view of hua hin. It has a monkey village with heaps mokey and you must look after your bags and stuffs carefully

I made the effort to climb the steps up the hill today. The view from the top is outstanding but the rest of it is all very run down and dirty.

Was fun feeding the monkeys but as you can imagine with that many around the smell of the place is pretty bad! Also there's litter everywhere so maybe put some bins out and teach the monkeys how to clean up after themselves. Nice wee temple at the top too with good views

On Monday morning, practically deserted. A little hard to get to - small road winding up a small mountain. The view is worthwhile. Lots of monkeys. Unfinished buildings and temples in poor repair. Good free side trip, worth 15 minutes to one hour. Beside small fishing port with fresh seafood and view of colorful Thai fishing boats.

We were interested to see the monkeys and hoped to get some pictures with them. I was surprised that the monkeys didn't come close to us at all. It turned out that the monkeys can be agressive and it is not recommended to clap them. However there are a few spots where you can buy some food for the animals... More

Visited after seeing the beautiful station, what a dissapointment......the monkeys are a real pain and the litter and mess lets it down. Ok views but just wanted to leave as soon as we arrived.

Bit neglected, nice place to watch the monkeys. On a clear day, there would be a nice view if you go to the top. You can take a green songthaew for 10 baht to Cicada market and walk from there, if you do not want to pay for guided tour. Or if you take the new ferry to Pathaya, it... More

The place must be very nice while the tourist time during the day is. We went there after 3 pm and found it with not so many people, all the shops closed, lots of dirt and trash everywhere, even at the side in the bushes some statue with its head ripped off.... Not a very friendly place. At the tip... More

Glad we saw the monkeys in their natural environment, but did not feel that safe, the monkeys can get quite aggressive, fighting over food, the place has been wrecked by the monkeys with the majority of the buildings being derelict. One guy had his shopping stolen by the monkeys from the back of his motorbike. Wouldn't go again, but worth... More
