Thailand http://tpr.org en In Thailand, A Feast Fit For A King Goes To The Monkeys http://tpr.org/post/thailand-feast-fit-king-goes-monkeys <p>Once a year, and only in Thailand, the four legged and agile inhabitants of <a href="http://www.tourismthailand.org/Where-to-Go/Lopburi" target="_blank">Lopburi</a>, the Macaques monkeys, are treated as honored guests at the Monkey Buffet Festival. Normally, the locals regard these simian creatures with disdain because of their atrocious behavior. Monkey hordes hang out on roof tops and telegraph wires, and their hygiene leaves much to be desired. Passer bys are often the recipients of undesired droppings.
