Monkey feast­ing in Myan­mar:

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse - – Staff

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.
