Monkey Island

Do you know the video game called “Monkey Island”? -It was a famous pirate-graphic adventure from the 80´s- and do you know that actually there is a real island with the same name? It is located in Vietnam, near the sandy city of Nha Trang (which is something like the vietnamise Miami).

There, as you could imagine from its name, the main inhabitants are monkeys! All the island is full of them, you can see them alone, in groups, playing, taking care of each other, etc., and they are not afraid of humans, so it is ver likely that they will come next to you and ask you for food or even try to take your wallet! so better keep an eye on them!


The island itself is quite espectacular, and small enough to walk all around during a morning trip, one side you will find a very nice beach and in the other a very photogenic rocky area.

You can reach the island by taxi or motorbike (after a hard negotiation with a local motorbike driver), but also there is a bus for the few workers of the island that you might be able to reach if you are lucky!

So if you don´t want to me surrounded by funny-jumping monkeys and explore a magical island DO NOT GO THERE!

By the way, I am Nacho and from now on I will be writing also in the blog!
