Over the weekend, I went on a road trip north of Bangkok to Ayutthaya and Lopburi. These are two good stops if you’re heading to Chiang Mai by train and you want to break your journey. During my second day I attended the annual Monkey Party. Lopburi is famous for the monkeys and on the last Sunday of November every year they throw a party for them. I was also hoping to visit some sunflower fields on this trip. But I was told they are not very good this year so far. Everyone is saying come back in December as they are late blooming. The State Railway of Thailand also hasn’t started their sunflower train trips yet. The following are the photos that I tweeted live. Click here for Day One.
Monkey Party 2016 in Lopburi was quieter than normal but still a lot of fun. It takes place every year on the last Sunday in November pic.twitter.com/GXDy0rX0kH— Richard Barrow in Thailand 🇹🇭 🇬🇧 (@RichardBarrow) November 27, 2016
