Monkey School in Kanchanaburi

I'm trying to arrange a full day tour in Kanchanaburi, and my kids wanted to see the Monkey School, but I can't seem to find where it's located?

Hi,

The Monkey School is close to the Chong Kai war cemetry and Wat Tham Khao Poon, not too far from the centre of Kanchanaburi but on the other side of the river.

Ask anyone for "River Tour Restaurant" on the Khwae (Kwai) Noi.

After Chong Kai War cemetery and just before the railway crossing turn left.

We had a guide and driver and they got lost tying to find the monkey school, but we found it eventually next to the river and we had a good time. There is a show and many caged monkeys to see and feed as well as a baby monkey to hold and play with.

Have fun

Hi Kerrie,

Until it was mentioned on the forum I didn't even know of its existence. I don't think it receives a lot of visitors.

Enjoy your time in Kanchanaburi.

Is the Monkey School still there? Good Times say they are closed already. Can anyone confirm?

Yes they are but when called to book, they say the Monkey School is already closed. Same with other tour agents.

Thanks judksp, plenty of monkeys can be seen around the Erawan Falls living in their natural habitat.
