Monkey feasting in Myanmar:
YOU don’t have to wait til next year to see a monkey feeding frenzy – head to Hpa-an in Kayin State any day of the week. You’ll have to summit Mt Zwegabin, around a two-hour hike, but the sweat is worth it. Check out the monastery at the top: For a small donation you can stay the night with the monks. The next morning they’ll prepare an authentic local breakfast for you before the feeding of the monkeys at 11am. Though not as over-the-top as Lopburi’s party, the image of monks feeding monkeys on top of a mountain is one you won’t soon forget.
