This was another attraction included in the day tour, although you do have to pay 20 baht to enter, and 5 baht to use the toilet. There are steps inside that you can walk up and see all the monkeys floating around. The statues and sculptures are definitely worth a visit. Definitely recommend this to anyone who does the Khao...

This attraction was part of a larger tour that I was part of, so it was the only reason why we came to the Monkey Cave / Buddha Cave. Not much to see, a reclining Buddha inside a cave, and lots of monkeys around the place. I avoided touching or feeding any of the monkeys, a couple of them looked... More

We went on the Natural Khao Lak discovery tour, I tried to leave my review on their page but for some reason I can't.. so I'll leave it here. First off, the tour guide was awesome, very knowledgable and friendly. The turtle sanctuary, the memorial, the bamboo rafting and the Buddha cave was awesome, would do those again in a... More

Visited the Monkey temple on the way back from James Bond Island. Entrance fee of 20 Baht. Found it serene and felt a sense of divinity. You can walk up the stairs to explore the deeper section of the cave. This is normally a time filler. Did not see many monkeys in the afternoon.

Although people get caught up with the monkeys the temple cave is beautiful. The large reclining buddha must be 10metres long and as you walk up the steps there are beautiful rock formations and even bats. It's a cool spot on a hot day to sit and think. Not fussed with monkeys I find them aggressive luckily we arrived late... More

Well worth visiting and there is many wild monkeys. Many vendors outside the temple were selling bananas and peanuts to be fed to monkeys. There is a also nice cafe selling fruit smoothies on the temple ground.

I have visited in August. It is really amazing place. Didn't expect such big cave inside mountain. Good for photos. There are steps to climb up but due to rainy day I gave up in the middle because it was slippery. The reclining Buddha statue is very good.

Well worth visiting, fantastic statues of various Buddha s deep inside a 200,000 year old cave. Beware the monkeys.
