Monkey Buffet FestivalLopburi, Thailand
As thanks for bringing good fortune, the town of Lopburi lavishes its local primates with a veritable food orgy. Check out the long-tailed macaques as they slurp cans of Coke, chow pyramids of fruit and fornicate on table tops.
While they delight from afar, you'll want to keep your distance from these walking, scoffing critters. The macaques aren't necessarily that adept at knowing what's food and what isn't, and we're sure you don't want to find yourself on the menu.
Sitting about 150 km from Bangkok, Lopburi can be easily reached from the capital by both train and bus.
You can’t witness this bizarre spectacle for free, although donating a banana or two surely wouldn’t go amiss…
The feast takes place at the Khmer ruins in Lopburi in November.
