    Monkeys!

    Lopburi is famous for the hundreds of crab-eating macaques that overrun the Old Town, especially in the area around Phra Prang Sam Yot and Phra Kaan Shrine. Keep an eye out for monkeys hanging from trees and wires and sitting on roofs and ledges, and be aware that they have some unpleasant bad habits including pooping on unsuspecting pedestrians from their overhead perches, jumping on people to snatch food, and stealing bags that they suspect may contain something edible. On the other hand, they are cute and photogenic if unpredictable.

    monkeys are not that innocent

    by picek Updated Jul 31, 2008

    Don't give monkey a chance to bite you, you can get some serious disease (including hepatitis, rabies...). Though I had wooden stick with me when going around the temples, they weren't afraid and climbed up my stick and they lighty bite me sometimes. On must imagine they would bite much harder if they're really pissed off!

    monkeys

    You will receive long bamboo stick when entering Prang Sam Yot and San Phra Kan - the ruins besieged by monkeys. So, it's not that dangerous in these ruins as it might seem. Just keep them in your sight.

    Monkey Town

    Invasion of the monkeys!

    Because of the huge numbers of them, the monkeys can be quite intimidating at times. For instance, my girlfriend's take-away packet of drink was snatched by one while we were on our way through the city centre.
    At night, it might seem like they all went to sleep as you would have problems seeing then in the dark, but they are ALL still around and waiting for the chance to pounce on you!!
    Of course, the tourists and locals continuously feeding them in the day doesn't help.
