  • The monkeys were very numerous, fun to see but have not something edible in the hand or bag when taking them there. Also keep firmly into the cameras and phones, don't mess with a monkey for you suddenly have 20 PCs around you or at you. Glad to see it got food, Oh as fast as it went in. ..

  • That s a wonderful place
  • When you visit here early morning then you will see the beauty of this temple.
  • Most tourists come to see the monkeys, which are often a combination of cute, mischevious, and annoying. There are locals around who will help keep the monkeys under control. A good tip is expected for their monkey herding assistance. The shrine (and temple ruins) is rather standard otherwise.
  • Loved the boisterous monkeys there. They seem to be all over the city. I learned my lesson...enjoy watching them, but don't feed them. When you feed one, several hundreds will swamp you for the food.
  • Full of monkeys!

Where to stay in Lop Buri

When staying overnight in Lop Buri, keep in mind that lodgings in the Old Town offer more wallet-friendly rates than the upscale hotels in the New Town. Staying in the Old Town also means dealing with large numbers of monkeys, which typically only bother tourists visibly carrying food. You can also look for hotels surrounding the palace, where the monkey presence remains low. Alternatively, consider staying in the New Town to take advantage of better rooms with more amenities.
