Monkeys Festival

Lopburi Monkey Banquet
  
 
Lopburi is located 150 km north of Bangkok. It is best known for  monkeys town because they are everywhere. It’s a popular tourist activity to feed the monkeys but, during November, the simple bags of sunflower seed you can buy are replaced by something much grander. There’s a huge banquet laid out for the approximately 3,500 monkeys or more and they are allowed to feast on 4 tonnes of fruits, vegetables and other treats.
 
 
 
 
You can enjoy watching or photographing during the time but always be aware that the Lopburi monkeys will climb on you and try to take food or valuables from you, so you should keep your belongings safe and secured.
