Monkey Buffet Festival


Before you get all excited and think we’re promoting a festival in which people dine on monkeys, you’d be wrong. This annual festival in Lopburi, Thailand, actually feeds monkeys in a public display. A large buffet of fruits and vegetables are offered to the monkeys. It is considered good luck to feed the long-tail macaque monkeys.
