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.
How to get to Hon Lao - Hon Lao is located about 30 km’s north of Nha Trang and can be accessed by a boat ferry from Luong Son beach. It costs VND30,000 and takes 10 minutes to arrive.
If you are an animal lover, avoid the animal shows on both Hon Lao and Hon Heo.
