[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
To Koh Samui, I've seen three manners for to gather the coconuts. A man climbing on the coconut tree : very dangerous because the coconuts are at least at 15 meters height . A man cutting the stem of the coconut using a knife attached at a long pole : very difficult. A monkey climbing on the tree : convenient.
The monkey is trained for to distinguish the ripe nuts and he turns the nuts until the nuts fall down out the tree. The coconuts are the most important exportation of Koh Samui.
