Toh Sae Hill, also called Monkey Hill, is the highest hill in Phuket Town. It is home to around 400 macaques who live in groups all over the area. The monkeys don't attack people but make sure you don't have your belongings stolen.

Monkey Hill is located in the old town area on central-east side. If you take the bus to Phuket Town, it's a short walk from the bus station. Or you can take a tuk tuk at the bus stop to take you there. There is a popular shrine at the foot of the hill. Local people come here to ask for lucky lottery numbers. The shrine is dedicated to three different holy spirits, Toh Sae Dang, Toh Sae Dam and Toh Sae Kaow.

There is a viewing platform built in 2015 with great panorama of Phuket. The hill is popular among locals as a jogging area. The uphill road si closed for traffic at 5 pm, so that people can walk to the top and watch sunset.
