Monkey Hill (Khao Toh Sae) in Phuket Town

If you have been in Phuket Town, you have probably seen the high hill with TV and Radio masts at the top. Perhaps you didn’t know that this hill is home to hundreds of macaques monkeys. There is a road leading up to the top, where a viewing platform was built in 2015.

Some people like to walk up there for a good sweat, while others prefer driving a motorbike or car. Before we headed up to Monkey Hill, I read about an “Uncle Hog” who is there daily to do a “show” for you with his little monkey friends. But we couldn’t see any uncle here — just some Russian tourists and many monkeys.
