As soon as I read about the “monkey temple” in Lopburi, the next town north of Ayutthaya, I knew we had to go. After a simple breakfast at our hostel in Ayutthaya, we took the crowded commuter train to Lopburi, with intent to see a few more ruins and temples. By the time we made it to Lopburi, however, we really just wanted to sit down. We watched the monkeys play and swim and steal water bottles out of our backpacks, ate some of the most delicious noodles I’ve had here in Thailand (place had no Western name, so I can’t even share) and then took the train back to Bangkok. Kaitie and I were both very satisfied with our mini holiday.
Warning: prrrrretty much all monkey photos below.
They use the more Japanese-style tuk tuks in Ayutthaya. The ones in the rest of Thailand don’t have that rounded front.
Such a beautiful little girl. She shared my love of staring out the window for the duration of the train ride…
