Someone really should clean this place up. It's a real dump in places but it's worth it for some exercise, good views and the monkeys (which aren't any hassle as long as you don't carry food).

Monkeys are fun to watch - keep your distance though. Good viewpoint. Not much else of interest but good hike in from town.

We went around evening time so the temple is closed but we still climb up the steep staircase to the top. There are many monkeys everywhere. Lucky they are not the aggressive type. Think it's better not to feed the monkeys as they will become...More

Worth a quick hour or so visit. Great views from the very top of the temple. Watch out for the naughty monkeys as they will try to steal anything they can off you if your not careful.

A place to visit at least once. But I wouldn't say it's anything special. Could be fun for kids to see the monkeys and feed them. Maybe take a photo of the beachfront of Hua hin, but that's pretty much it. I remember this place...More

This was a neat attraction. The steps to the temple are very steep and there are monkeys everywhere. The best part was feeding the moneys! It’s pretty inexpensive and there are so many! There are a few shops around that have really neat stuff as...More

No entrance fee and definitely worth the trip. Take heed of other advice here by all means, but don't let it put you off going - go to the top temple, great views. Also go down to the Chinese temple, it is very... More

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
