Lopburi Monkey Banquet
26.11.17-27.11.17


Lopburi, Thailand
Two tons of produce and rice feed about 3,000 macaques each year at one of the world’s weirdest feasts. Chefs and onlookers arrive at the ancient Phra Prang Sam Yot temple, where the monkeys live, and set out a lavish banquet over which the Governor of Lopburi himself presides. After a bit of music and human-monkey dancing, the macaques are invited to chow down – which they do, with fervour and a bit of food-slinging. The 20-baht entrance fee does come with a stick for self-defence, but don’t be alarmed – as long as you don’t withhold any food, you’ll be fine
