Cambodian Monkeys

Independence Jungle, Sihanoukville, Cambodia, March 2016. The monkeys at Independence are quite an attraction here in Sihanoukville and should be on any visitors list of things to see, especially afternoons from around 4 o’ clock when they head on down from the jungle and fight over scraps of food tossed by the locals. Tourists and locals gather to watch the antics of these macaque’s who are waiting patiently, sometimes impatiently for those morsels.Occasionally bananas are offered for sale by some enterprising locals which of course further encourages the monkeys.So, on your way back from the beach why not spend a few minutes watching these creatures squabble over bananas, nuts and scraps. The  Macaques can be found loitering on the road from Victory Hill to Independence Beach.Google map:

CAUTION: On a previous visit I was chased away rather aggressively and could only continue by hitching a ride on the back of a scooter!
