Thailand: Monkey business! Moneymaking macaques thrown banquet for enticing tourists

Moneymaking monkeys from Lopburi were in for a treat on Sunday, as the local Monkey Banquet Festival got underway at the city’s Phra Prang Sam Yot shrine.

The annual festival, which takes over the town and sees the animals gorging on bananas and other fruits, is organised by locals as a way of rewarding the long-tail macaque monkeys who bring tourism to the area.
