Monkey Hill, Phuket Overview

Toh Sae Hill or Monkey Hill is often frequented by tourists who like to spend time watching the frolicky creatures up to their mischievous antics. They can also be fed little treats, and even have been trained by a local man to perform some little tricks.

As a massive tourist attraction viewing a range of unique macaques, the monkey hill is also the tallest hill in Phuket. Here, you can find a few TV and radio stations along with a recreational and jogging spot for the locals. A proper platform was set up in 2015, offering a stunning city view to tourists and locals. Also, the shrine at the bottom of the hill is quite famous here.

How to Reach Monkey Hill, Phuket

There are no direct trains to Phuket. 

By Bus
If you are travelling from Bangalore or Singapore, you can get down at Phun Phin railway station, and reach Phuket via a 5-hour bus ride.

By Flight
If you are going by flight from long distances, you can directly get down at Phuket Airport and take other local transport services to reach your destination.

Once you are in Phuket, travelling becomes simple as tuk-tuks and taxis are readily available everywhere and don’t cost much either.

Hilltop Trek or Ride
You can take an adventure trek to the hilltop, or you ride a motorbike up to the viewpoint. You could also take a taxi or tuk-tuk to these hilltop viewpoints as well.

Tips

  • Try and visit the place during the day especially if you want to trek uphill as the walkway is steep and requires quite a lot of time.
  • Do not let your guard off while feeding the monkeys as they can be quite unpredictable.
  • Vehicles are not allowed between 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Plan accordingly. 
  • If you are planning to take the long trek to the top, it is recommended to carry a first aid kit and a few snacks including protein bars.
  • Wear comfortable shoes with a good grip as there would be quite a lot of walking.
