Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!
My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)
I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.
So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.
Lopburi is Thailand's famous 'Monkey City'. The city is around 150km (93 miles) northeast of Bangkok, and is home to hundreds of macaque monkeys. It is a popular tourist destination, and if you love animals then it is well worth seeing.
Lopburi is a small city that is approximately 140km north of Bangkok
It take just over 2 hours (via train) from Bangkok. A lot of travellers stop off at Lopburi when travelling inbetween Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
It is perfect for a day trip from Bangkok, especially if you love animals and want to get out of the huge city of Bangkok.
Lopburi is quite small, and you can walk everywhere on foot. There were tuk tuk / taxi drivers waiting outside the train station, but we just walked it. Directly opposite the train station are some ruins (worth checking out, but no monkeys there).
If you start at the train station (bottom right in the map below), you can walk clockwise and see the main attractions. It is hard to get lost in Lopburi!
We really recommend going there - but be careful of the monkeys. They are wild animals and aren't exactly always tame. Before we went to Lopburi, we found this page helpful for research.

We spent 24 hours in the lovely capital city of Latvia. Riga is small, but has a lot of charm and is an interesting place to spend a weekend. 24 hours wasn't quite enough time there, but got got to see quite a bit of the city and its various sights.
15-20km from the city center of Bangkok is a large field that is known as the "Bangkok Airplane Graveyard".
