Monkey Hill, Phuket Town

4.4
#1 of 7 in Parks in Phuket Town
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Meet the macaques at Monkey Hill, one of the tallest hills in town. Shortly after you start walking up the hill, you will meet group of monkeys looking for food. Feel free to hand them fruit, but if you want to keep snacks to yourself, be sure to keep your food hidden in your pockets or bags. Climb to the viewpoint and watch for fantastic sights of the city, however, keep in mind that the road closes to traffic at 5:00 p.m.; after that time you can only walk up to see the sunset. Use our Phuket Town tour planner to arrange your visit to Monkey Hill and other attractions in Phuket Town.

  • We drove up to see the monkeys today. We picked up 3 bags of peanuts for 7baht from the nice woman high up on the hill. A large monkey came out and robbed my oldest son of the whole bag! My 15 year ol...  more »
  • Nice walk where l we cross a lot of walkers, sportsmen. There are fitness gear at several places. The slope is steep, but it's very nice to make an effort. You can meet monkeys along the routes. They play everywhere. When a car passes they barely move and the Horn is forbidden. A very nice walk to do. And icing on the cake, reached the top of the Hill, panorama. Come during the day, when the Sun is down, in sees almost more.

  • Walking all the way up of this hill is a great experience. You'll meat dogs, goats, chicken, and beautiful view but also of course a lot of monkeys. They are very used to the tourist and therefore try to get food from you, be careful of the older ones that can get agressive. The only disappointing thing was the top of the hill, there's absolutely nothing except big antennas.
  • Nice hill for hiking up, some parts have footpath too. some dude selling fruits and coconuts along the way. Dogs, goats, roosters, monkeys, see it all. Dont go to transmission tower, guarded by dogs.
  • looking for monkeys? go to monkey hill. its a bit of a hike to actually start seeing monkeys but well worth it. there are monkeys all over the place, literally. you can buy peanuts and bananas at the bottom to feed them. in our experience, most monkeys didnt like the bananas so be sure just stock up on peanuts instead. i heard from locals that monkeys dont come out until the afternoon/evening so keep that in mind.we went around 5:00pm and it was perfect.
  • Fun times! If you go inthe morning (9 - 10 am) there aren't that many monkeys, or tourists which is perfect if you want a chill environment to feed the monkeys. Take a scooter to the top, because the walk is quite steep. Stop on the way up to buy peanuts and bananas. There are also a few view points where you can stop and enjoy the scenery.
  • I loved this more than one could describe. The monkeys are In their natural environment and it was amazing to witness!
