Walked the trail twice & didn't see a primate. Saw more monkeys jumping in the trees from the Centerra which is at one end of the trail. The trail itself is a reasonable easy walk.

Slightly anxious going over the monkey trail to Ao Nang staying at Centara Grand. The steps up are in pretty bad shape, certainly not suitable for anyone with even the slightest mobility issue. The lats on the stairway are uneven and steeply spaced, quite surprised...More
