Lopburi - Old Temples, Monkeys and Sunflowers

Like Ayuthaya, Lopburi has a lot of old temples and palace ruins, located in the old fortified town. Everyone will dress up for the annual King Narai Festival where you can see traditional life of old Siam.


Monkeys are the second big attraction. In some parts of town hundreds of them hang around and make people's life difficult with their bold behaviour. During the annual monkey festival in November locals will feed the monkeys as they believe it will bring them good fortune.

Another famous festival in the Lopburi region is the Sunflower Festival during the cool season, with special trains leaving from Bangkok at weekends.
