Went with friends on a day out. Not my cup of tea seeing any type of animal tied up. The monkeys seem to be cared for and my friends enjoyed the show. If you like a animal show then it's average.

Although the owners were friendly and gentle with the monkeys it was sad that they were tied up separately and there didn't seem to be great access to fresh water. The monkeys do sit on your shoulders and arms and the children seemed to enjoy...More

The monkeys sit on top of your head, shoulder, hands and arms. They try to pickpocket your belongings and untie your shoelaces. Quite a laugh! They are chained, however they seem to be treated well.

Nothing special if you are familiar with Chinese acrobatics. More interesting thing is battle with wild monkeys.

Scary and cruel. I can not believe people like to see this and was shocked to hear about what was going on here. This organisation should be shut down. Who wants to see monkeys treat this way.

Even there are plenty of bad comments, there is a great posibility to see and understand monkeys from very close distance. I believe that for children it is a great learing opportunity. They are really well maintained, i was surprised by owners behaviours with monkeys...More
