The slopes of Monkey Hill are the home for many wild macaques, to whom you can bring fruits, nuts and other treats.
How to feed wild monkeys in Phuket
On the way to the top of Monkey Hill you will find many posters warning about the dangers of feeding monkeys. The animals can behave in an aggressive way if they notice something edible in your hands.

So you should be very cautious, because the monkeys can bite, snatch things out of your hands, or pull something out of your pockets. However, despite the risk the locals and tourists bring fruit, nuts and other treats to the dwellers of the hill.
