The monkeys were in abundance, some were curious, but mostly not that interested in interacting with us. We did have a couple of the younger ones (teenagers?) climb up to our shoulders to say hello, but after a couple of gentle spins and bows, they...More

Small and very nice old temple, with many monkeys playing around it. we were there on the weekend so there were many tourists. The monkeys like to play with them and the tourists feed them with food that you buy locally.

I can only recommend that you take pictures from outside a safe distance away. It is simply too dangerous. You are guaranteed to have monkeys attack you. Families with small children stay away.

Lop Buri is the heart of the central Thai classical Siam. These ruins go back hundreds of years with Khmer influenced architecture. Step back in time here and wonder what it was like.

If you really want to enjoy the city, do a walking tour. No need for a map as the town is very small. There are monkeys everywhere and you can buy some fruits at the market to feed them. The only sad thing was that...More
