Wat Tum Sua (Tham Seua or Suea – disambiguation) is a Buddhist temple located just outside Krabi town in Krabi province in Southern Thailand. This is a great day-trip for visitors with kids or just couples looking for something to do in Krabi. This temple has 3 main attractions.
1. 1,256 step (278 meters elevation) mountain to climb where there is a Buddha, Chedi, and great view of the entire Krabi, Ao Nang, Koh Phi Phi areas.
2. Foothills area – up another 90 steps and down into an amazing overgrown foothills area with giant trees and caves where monks live. There is a short (300m) path you can walk through the tropical rainforest and see caves, lizards, and things.
3. Monkeys. Many tourists like to see the monkeys at the temple, and they feed them. Please don’t. I have seen the monkeys bite adults and children – I mean REALLY bite down hard. The monkeys are moody and it depends on the heat and how hungry they are… and whether they have babies. When in bad moods – the monkeys at this temple bite. Do not play with or tease them!
