Recent video that has been published on the Internet shows a flock of monkeys unexpectedly attacking vacationers on the Phi Phi Islands on Christmas Eve. Tourists on the beach, including children, jumped to their feet when they saw the monkeys rushing toward them.

This wild event reminds all visitors to Thailand that monkeys can be unpredictable and react defensively when threatened. Travellers are advised to move slowly around the monkeys, keep a safe distance, protect their belongings, do not approach first, do not feed them and follow local rules, Metro writes.

It is noted that attacks on tourists have become more frequent recently. They are urged to be careful and follow the recommendations to prevent such situations.

Earlier, an aggressive monkey attack was reported in Chumphon province. Manee Chitdusadee, 44, worked as a driver and was taken to a hospital in Thailand after a group of monkeys pushed him down a hill and attacked him.

He described one of the wild females jumping out of the bushes and jumping on his head. According to the man, he fell down the slope from a height of about 160 feet, where he was attacked by several more monkeys.

"The monkeys were screaming. They were biting and scratching me... I was injured when I fell and thought I would not be able to escape. I could not believe that this was happening. They were so aggressive, and there were too many of them for me to fight. My body was shackled with fear, so I curled up trying to protect myself," the newspaper quoted the victim as saying.

In addition, two monkeys attacked a one-year-old baby in Thailand. His father, a tourist from Australia, posted a video of the attack on a beach.
