Definetely worth a visit, you can buy some peanuts to feed the monkeys, they are very lovely and will climb on you to steal your peanuts. The place is accessible by bike or car.

Nice inexpensive place to visit where you can see a wide variety of monkeys. Most of them are friendly but dont feed them and hold your belongings tight or they will try to take them

Monkey Hill is in Phuket. If you mean how far from Phuket Town, it is less than 10 minutes by car, maybe a couple of kilometers away. I’m not sure of the price as I don’t recall, but I can tell you that the hill closes to... More
