If you like monkeys, then a visit to “Monkey Mountain” is a must. It is the hill that has all the TV Transmitting Stations on top, and can be accessed from To Sae Rd in Phuket Town.

Half way to the top, several troops of monkeys hang out in the wild. A truck load of old fruit is dropped there everyday by an old Thai man, so they have little to do except eat and mate. There are many mums carrying very young babys on there laps.

They love uncooked peanuts, so a quick trip to the wet market prior to going will be well rewarded.
