Lopburi, 154km north of Bangkok, was part of the Khmer empire of Angkor from the 10th century to the 13th century. As a result, there are a few notable shrines in Hindu and Khmer style, which happen to be inhabited by hundreds of small monkeys who, once they climb on you, are quite difficult to get rid of. In the fall, Lopburi even lays out buffet tables for its resident monkeys to fest on.
