Tough walk up a steep hill so if the tuk tuk driver offers to drive you up for an extra 100 baht take him up on it! Once up there are loads of monkeys around, crab eating macaques that kept their distance though signs warn...More

We went there on our own with two kids aged 8 and 3 and it is not that interesting. The view might be the most exciting thing there. There is a temple and aggressive monkeys, but there is so many better places to experience animals...More

Definitely not one of the best beaches in Thailand. Only reason why I was there is because my hotel was a stones throw away. Nice to go and take some photos but that’s about it. If you are a beach lover, you’d be sorely disappointed.

Easy climb to the top. Interesting to see the free roaming monkeys. It’s a bit rundown but reasonable enough place to visit for about a 1 hour walk and explore.

We took some time to visit this beach, it was pleasant enough, however there were monkeys everywhere. Although very cute need to be very careful as they will take any from you. Saw my first swimming monkey!

Not sure why they call this chopsticks mountain in thai. Also we came here on a scorching morning and apparently it was too hot for the monkeys, none were seen

OK, I am not sure what you mean by "Monkey Island", some people call it Monkey Mountain, but if you go up the steep, steep winding road all the way to the top to where the steps to the Temple on the very top of the mountain... More
