Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!
My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - 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.

Lots of interesting posts around the travel blog world in the last week or so. Here are some which have caught my attention.
Although Europe has a population of over 700 million people, there are still many people who are not from there. When they visit Europe, sometimes they have some ideas about how it will be - however some of these are big false myths. Here are some of the most common myths when it comes to travelling in Europe.
Budapest is an amazing city with lots of things to see and do. Here is what we got up to when spending 48 hours in Budapest, checking out all the major sights and things to do!
Lots of people love to take photos or record videos while abroad. It is great for memories, for telling your friends and family what you have been up to - and also it is just fun!
If you want to go and take photos abroad, then make sure you don't forget anything on this list!
We spent a short weekend in the Polish capital of Warsaw. See what the city looks like and what we got up to. It is definitely a city you can visit many times, with lots of things to see and do there!
