Sammuk Hill
Sammuk Hill is a great view point of Bangsaen for seeing good Bangsaen view from the hilltop and around the hill. The hill is also a famous place to make worship since there is a Chinese shrine, called “San Chao Mae Sammuk”.Each day, a number of visitors come to visit this hill for either worship or seeing view. This is why it can also be an interesting attraction in Bangsaen. It is located next to Laemtan Bangsaen.

Sammuk Hill is not too high, nor steep. On the top of the hill is nothing much to see besides a good view and monkeys. There are many groups of monkeys. Visitors would have seen them since entering from the entrance of Sammuk Hill. Monkeys on this hill have lived there for long time like their home. Although they look so cute and harmless that visitors can closely feed them bananas, please do not pet or try to hold them because wild-monkeys could hurt you anytime. Note, you must keep your stuffs such as a bag, a camera or food away from the monkeys because sometimes they will steal your stuffs to look for food.

Besides monkeys and view on the hilltop, there is a famous Summuk Chinese Shrine on the road around the hill. Both local people and visitors always come to worship and make merit for their good life. The name of hill, Sammuk Hill, comes from an old love story. The story has been told that there are a lady and a man were in love with each other, but in the end a lady had broken heart and then she jumped out from the cliff to kill herself. After that, Chinese Shrine was built nearby to dedicate to her love and given name to these places after hers (the lady named Sammuk).

Next to Sammuk Chinese Shrine is a nice and clean place for hanging out and enjoy relaxing activities. For example, some people sit there to see sunset or fishing from the cliff; some of them ride bicycle or running up hill for exercise.

Sammuk Hill is located between Bangsaen beach and Angsila. Unfortunately, this area does not have public transportation yet. Visitors might need to hire a red Songthaew (Baht bus) or rent bicycle from Bangsaen beach to get there.
