Koh Sirey monkeys
Separated from the mainland of Phuket by the Klong Ta Jin, a shallow mangrove swamp this twenty square kilometer island is connected by a causeway to the city.
This mangrove swamp is the home to a large horde of macaque monkeys who congregate every afternoon at Koh Sirey Monkey Point to get fed by local people and tourists alike. Peanuts or fruit can be bought from street vendors right at the location and the monkeys come within arms reach of people.
