We visited the ruins of Lopburi and saw SO MANY MONKEYS!! I kept my distance from the monkeys but Nick was trying to get videos and they started jumping all over him like a jungle gym. It was all fun and games until one stole his sunglasses which were never to be seen again. The ruins in Lopburi are from the same era as the ruins in Ayutthaya. They weren't quite as extravagant but were still pretty spectacular. To get to the ruins we took a Sŏrng·tăa·ou which is a popular and cheap mode of transportation in Lopburi. It is a pick up truck with benches in the box and a cover over top. In Lopburi, they all seem to travel on one main road. They will take you anywhere on the main route for 8 Baht (30 cents) each and when you get to where you need to be there is a button in the back that you push that sounds like a horn letting the driver know you need to get off.
