During our travel through South East Asia, we have encountered monkeys everywhere!
Our kids fortunately learnt the rules at the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Indonesia. In the south of Thailand, the wild monkeys from Monkey beach jumped onto our long tail boat and hijacked all the food they could find. Although no one was hurt on this occasion, there have been many stories of people being attacked. So our advice is to leave Monkey Beach out of your South Thailand Island itinerary.
Our kids won’t forget their monkey encounters and randomly wanted to share their stories plus an off the cuff sing song!
