Today I went on a boat trip to a north west beach of Penang called Monkey beach. As soon as I got close to the beach I could see that the name is very fitting as I saw 5 monkies waiting for the boat to land. The monkies were all over my friends and I as they went about searching for food, We had brought a whole bag full of tiny bananas and they were all gone within minutes. The greedy little monkies had as many as 10 bananas each and still had the nerve to rip open our back packs and try to steal our food!

After a while of exploring we had a nap on the beach, i wasn't too comfortable as I was always expecting a monkey to come and try and nibble my face or something while I was asleep (didn't happen though). I was awoken by the smell of a great bbq as our boat captain was also the cook and made a massive lunch with all kinds of seafood and meats which was very tasty!

I spent the rest of the afternoon exploring and looking for more monkies before the boat took us back to Batu Ferringhi. The whole trip including the lunch was only 100 Ringgit per person ($40 AUD) which i think is awesome value for a great day out in paradise!
