1 hour taxi from Hua Hin. Nice boat trip round to unspoiled beach then a gentle hike up. Can also take a longer walk. Looks like a nice place to camp and trek.

It is non-common, the monkeys are funny, but not especially worth traveling for. Tip: you can walk up instead of going by truck. That's more fun for the monkeys and for you.

When we were there, there was no evidence of any work at all. The area is in serious need of a clean up, however still very much worth a visit.
