Lopburi – Laid-back City Taken Over by Crazy Monkeys

/ February 15, 2016/ Asia, Thailand, Travel Journal/ 0 comments

Have you watched the fantasy film “Jumanji”? When I first got off the minibus at Lopburi bus station, I felt as if I landed in the movie scene where crazy monkeys attacked everyone who got in their way. However, soon I realized that the animals were not that crazy and they actually fit urban scenery. Even though, they are quite a nuisance both for tourist and inhabitants, locals found their way to share the city with the monkeys. On top of that, cute animals are definitely the main reason for stopping in the laid-back town. Much more important one than the hundreds-year-old temple ruins.
