Hon Lao

Hon Lao (Monkey Island) is a firm favourite on the tourist trail. In 1985, 200 long-haired monkeys were brought in from Malaysia. Today, there are over 1,000 wild monkeys that expect to be fed. To cater to their hunger, you can buy corn on the island. Keep an eye on your belongings as there have been numerous reports of the monkeys snatching objects and running off.
