The temple itself is a bit run down and the area around the temple is nothing special. You have to be careful of the monkeys. The good thing is the view from the top which is pretty good

This place needs a review by the tourist board, if there is such a thing in Thailand. The warnings are there , illustrated with graphic photos, as to the risks of serious injury and subsequent infections, from being bitten by a monkey. But nothing prepares...More

We felt it was a little run down in parts but the temple was worth a visit even up all those stairs in the heat. Lots of monkeys to see, especially around the other side of the mount. It was a nice thing to do

I recommend this short hike for an early morning walk! Chopstick mountain is messy and very ugly quite frankly, but at least I gets you up in the morning, that’s all, nothing more, nothing less!!

The road leading up the hill is a big congested at the bottom with seafood stalls on both sides. Going up, there are lots of monkeys who weren't too aggressive with us. Maybe they were just having a lazy afternoon. Nothing special at the top,...More

Just a temple on top of a hill and gives you a good view of the sea and surrounding region. Maybe the one big attraction is the amount of monkeys there. Be careful when around them.

It was a windy day however the climb up the stairs on the side of the mountain was interesting with the inquisitive monkeys watching us and walking by as we climbed. One little monkey was looking for an opportunity to take something from us however...More

It was a surprise to see so much monkeys around, pet them carefully and hand feeding them with corn you can buy at site

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
