Such a distressing attraction, i lasted less than 3 seconds in this complex! soooooo sad to see beautiful monkeys ripped from their natural surroundings and living in a concrete pen WITH CHAINS AROUND THEIR NECKS! what was even more distressing was seeing groups of people (families with small children, young couples with no brians i guess) actually watching the show! we were lied to and told that the monkeys were protected from poachers this way and were released back into the jungle after 4pm but needed to return again. later on i found out that this is now illegal and has been for over 10 years, all animals are free in thailand and are now protected by law, it is only a handful of visitors that keep these parks alive. i was so disgusted, the silly guide apologised but i don't think my message got through. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ATTRACTION! oh and if this is not distressing enough, just nextdoor to this is the elephant riding school and crocodile farm no doubt with the same goal.......cruelty!
