    Lopburi suggestions needed

    We will be going to Lopburi in a couple of weeks and wondered if any of you are from there and what there is to do. All I know is that there are monkeys there!

    Any farang restaurants?

    Any Thai restaurants that are good?

    What are the must see temples and other sites?

    What are the sites that i do not want to waste my time visiting?

    What lodging do you recommend?

    This is the place that a Thai recommended me. Lopburi Residence.

    www.lopburiresidence.com

    Anyone been there before?

    600 to 1200 baht a night. It says the only difference is that the expensive room has a bathtub and a mini bar.

    Never stayed at the Lopburi Residence. I always stay at the Lopburi Inn Resort and find it quite good.

    Rooms & Rate

    Be careful there is a Lopburi Inn and it sucks!

    Lopburi is best described as a good place to see monkeys in the streets and go to the sunflower festival in early Dec. Hope you like nasty thieving monkeys!

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Sounds reasonable priced, that Lopburi Inn Resort:
    Accomodation in Lopburi Inn Resort Hotel Thailand, Booking of Hotel Lopburi Inn Resort

    Just 1,020 baht.

    beware the monkeys. those things are evil incarnate. we got surrounded by a pack of them and i had nothing to fend them off with but a backpack.

    i can't remember the name of my hotel but i did eat at a restaurant called the white house, or something like that. the manager tried to do a hard sell on getting me to go to the temple with the mummies. when i declined, he sent a very long-in-the-tooth working girl over to sit at my table. she told me she was "ting-tong" and had problems because she drank too much. throughout our extended conversation, she was waving around a glass of whiskey. a wonderful dinner companion, as you can imagine.

    the ruins are nice but you can mostly see those in a day. if you're going to be there for more than a day than i would suggest trying to get out to that temple. those i know who've been said it was well worth the trip. wish i'd done it, in hindsight, as i don't know when i'll get up that way again.

    When I lived in Navanakorn in the early 90s I used to get up to Lopburi occasionally. I used to stay at an el cheapo Chinese-style hotel across the road from the old palace. I think it was called the Asia Lopburi Hotel [at] 150 baht per night. There was a restaurant around the corner which did a phad-thai that is the best I have ever eaten. They made their own fresh noodles daily.

    I disagree. I enjoyed the old ruins and the museum was not too bad. Certainly better than many here.
