Lopburi Town

Your welcome to Lopburi

Today, although historically important, Lopburi rarely appears on tourist itineraries. Most visitors to the city are Thais on a day trip from Bangkok to see the historic sights and the fields of sunflowers. There are several trains between Bangkok and Lopburi every day. For the foreign tourist, the easiest way to get to Lopburi is by train. The main sights of the historic city are a short walk from the train station (see map).

No discussion of Lopburi would be complete without mention of the town's rather sizable monkey population. They have become something of a symbol of the town, and are even feted with their own annual banquet by local tourism businesses, but in truth they're more of a nuisance.
