  Appealing, but only from a safe distance

Where ever there is a hotel in the Malaysian forest, there will be monkeys waiting for any leftovers or other goodies they can find. These primates may look cute, but they are wild and can be savage.

They will sneak into your room and ransack it for food if you leave the windows open. They can also be quite agressive if they feel their space is invaded. The alpha male is quite capable of charging an adult human and inflicting serious injury. Don't look them in the eye (a bellicose sign to them) and give them wide berth, espcially if you come on a male protecting a family group.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
