Why Monkey hill is special ?

Toe Sae Hill in Phuket Town is sometime referred to as Monkey Hill.The reason why becomes fairly obvious after a few hundred metres when you come across a troupe of macaques munching away on fruit brought to them by locals.

Probably the highest hill in Phuket Town, Monkey Hill is home to a few TV and radio stations and a popular recreation spot where many locals jog on a daily basis. The hill has a number of great viewpoints at different levels.


What to explore at Monkey hill?

There is one man in particular known as Pae Hog (aka Uncle Hog) who is there daily and will do a 'show' for you with his little friends. According to him there are about 400 macaques in total. They live in groups all over Monkey Hill. When he comes he gives them food separately or else they fight for it so it can get chaotic. These macaques are not aggressive and do not approach people as certain temple monkeys do, nevertheless care should be taken if you are with small children.

Near the bottom of the hill stands a colourful shrine devoted to three holy spirits; Toe Sae Dang, Toe Sae Dam and Toe Sae Kaow. It’s usually busy on Friday though it opens every day. Many people come here specifically to ask for lucky numbers for the lottery.


How to get to Monkey hill?

Near Phuket Provincial Hall and Provincial Court in Phuket Town. If you are coming from Thepkasattri Road, take the first road left after Phuket Prison situated on Dammrong Road. This is Toe Sae Road which leads up to Monkey Hill.

Buy bananas before you go up the hill as they are very expensive once you get up there. Just ask your tuk tuk driver to stop somewhere on the way. It was a great cheap way to get up and close with the monkeys. Make sure you listen to any tips from your driver about feeding them or standing back etc as they do this every day and these are wild animals.
