Monkey work coconut

Good for the kids

What we say: 2.5 stars

It might be fun for kids, but otherwise it's not really worth stopping to see. Real working monkeys are abundant, and can be seen on the back of pickup trucks atop a huge pile of coconuts, on their way to or from work.

They are generally well looked after, as they are good income earners for their keepers. A monkey costs around 20,000 baht, takes three years to train, and a good once can pick up to 1,000 coconuts a day!
