9 Macaque on Monkey Beach on Phi Phi Don, Thailand

Most boat tours of Phi Phi Don make a stop at Monkey Beach. As you arrive, you will be greeted by a colony of macaques that run along the rocks and beach with hopes that you will throw them a banana. These long-tailed macaques are cute and fun to watch but don’t get too close or try to pet them. 600 people a year are treated for attacks. The monkeys also carry diseases such as the herpes B virus and rabies that can be fatal.
