Was amazed at how many monkeys there were, and they walk right past you and interact with each other without a care for people walking around. There were literally hundreds of little monkey, the baby ones were the cutest.

It was really cool to see all the monkeys and they were really cute, but when the monkeys didn't behave, the staff hit the monkey with a hat and even kicked the monkey. Don't go!
