Grab a friend. Buy bananas. Befriend a local fisherman. Meet the monkeys. All in a day, Thailand.

    Needing a break from the bright lights of the big city? An escape to a simpler way of life is just a 90 minute trip from Bangkok to Monkey Island in Samut Songkhram province. For 700bht you can take a boat ride to meet the famous swimming monkeys and see how the local fishing community (Khlong Klone) lives. After feeding those ravenous monkeys some bananas, treat yourself to some amazing local seafood. It may be a perfect end to a low key Sunday after a night of the other kind of monkey business.
