Phuket Monkey Hill's Highlights

 

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.
