Although I never really warmed to the place (blame the one hour commute each way) it is a popular stop for tourists, both Thai and foreign, who seek a glimpse of the town's picturesque Khymer-ruins, historic temples and population of street-roaming monkeys - crab-eating macaques, to be precise.
The town recently announced a birth control plan to control the town's famous but rapidly-growing monkey population. Cute though they look the monkeys are a nuisance in the town. Not afraid of people, they regularly steal anything and everything they can get their hands on from locals and tourists.
All this talk of Lopburi is the perfect excuse to show a few of my snaps from my time in the town.
Can anyone else genuinely say they've worked in a town full of monkeys?
