Not much happening on Monkey Island. If you guys sitting around drinking beer. Five minutes was enough for me on the island. There are some great monkeys running around.

Beautiful spot, warm water and pristine views. Rooms are air conditioned, clean and comfortable. Shout out to Lee who really made an effort to make our stay more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Although this place is crawling with tourists, I enjoyed the “hike” to the summit (more of a treacherous free climb on alternatively slippery and razor sharp rocks). It is challenging but fun. Wear good shoes, not flip flops! I wore flip flops and it made the journey way more sketchy. There’s a nice open air bar where you can relax, have a cold drink and watch the monkeys. But do NOT mess with the monkeys!! The day we were there, two people got bitten. They also steal cell phones, sunglasses, and will swipe and drink your beer. They’ll take anything that’s not nailed down, and bite you if you try to stop ‘em. Keep a healthy distance, though, and they’re highly entertaining!…

If you get there in a group and everyone rushes to climb the steep mountain, just give up halfway and take your photo there. Because the path up is very narrow and dangerous and inside a forest with no view and YOU MIGHT BE STUCK THERE IN A QUEUE to get up and can't even get down! The viewpoint is so narrow that only very few people at a time fan get out there and you all must wait for them finish taking their selfies and getting off! And they don't hurry so you end up waiting and waiting and can't see any views and usually such a tour gives you 2 hours on the island so it is a waste to spend the precious time in a queue! The beach is nice and the monkeys crazy, putting on a show and stealing beer cans. Even if you have your belongings in a bag, monkeys can rip it in a split second and target items inside with great precision, saw it happen!! Very dangerous actually. They might steal other important items so be very careful. All in all worth the visit and even cooler than this is actually the Cai Beo Floating Village that you get to see on the way back!…

It's a beautiful island and the view is nice, however the monkeys are aggressive and within the first 10 minutes of our trip, myself, my friends and many other people who were with us on the trip wanted to leave.
