Every year the Thai city of Lopburi opens its doors to millions of tourists from around the world. On the last Sunday of November, here is a festival with many invited guests and set tables for. monkeys!

The heroes of the day have no clue about the rules of good manners: they don’t wash their hands before eating, grab all that you have, do not use Cutlery, fight for the championship, littering and even being a bully with the audience.
