We walked to the local food store to buy some groceries instead of eating out. We then walked around the city for a couple hours and came across many monkeys. Lopburi is known as "monkey city" and it definitely lives up to its title. We saw monkeys crossing streets, on rooftops, and at storefronts. It was a little freaky seeing all of the monkeys for us, but is a regular occurrence for the locals. November in Lopburi is known as "Monkey Month". During Monkey Month, the monkeys are fed by the locals and during the last weekend of every November there is a festival attended by many travellers and Thai people where the monkeys enjoy a feast put on by the locals. In recent years, there have been around 2000 kg of food donated to the monkeys by locals who believe donating will bring them good luck.
