- Take in some monkey theatre while in Koh Samui

May 12, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that Koh Samui is home to many amazing attractions and places of interest, one of which is the Monkey Theatre.

As the name suggests, those staying in hotels in Koh Samui can watch various species of primates perform lots of tricks and amusing acts, with visitors in the front row able to join in the fun and games.

Displaying wonderful skill, the animals thrill and amaze in equal measure and the entertainment factor is cranked up a notch when they show how they pick coconuts from the tops of the trees.

The monkey is man's best friend in Koh Samui and they have worked alongside the island's inhabitants for centuries, gathering fruit and helping out in various ways.

To round off the proceedings at the Monkey theatre, those staying in hotels in Koh Samui are treated to an elephant show and for a small fee, brave souls can ride bareback on the pachyderms.

Visitors will find the theatre on the main road in Bhoput village, with shows running from 10:30 local time to 12:00, 14:00 to 15:30 and 16:00 to 17:30 each day.
