Lopburi Monkey Festival

What :

The Monkey Festival in the city of Lop Buri, Thailand is a celebration of the town’s macaque residents.

Held annually since 1989, the Monkey Festival is a splendid buffet presented to the city’s monkey population at the 12th century, Khmer style Pra Sam Yot temple. The celebration begins around 10 a.m. with dancing and performances, and leads into the unveiling of a vegetarian feast spread on the temple grounds for the monkeys to enjoy.

The buffet is usually consumed in short order by the macaques, and many visitors compare the spectacle to a primate version of The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. It’s a rare treat for visitors on luxury tours of Thailand that should not be missed.


When :

The annual festival falls in late November, and visitors on Thailand tours should make advance plans to ensure they arrive in time for what has been called one of the world’s strangest festivals.


Where :

Lop Buri is less than 100 miles North of Thailand’s capital of Bangkok, and is easily accessed by private vehicle in about 3 hours. The Monkey Festival takes place mainly inside Pra Sam Yot temple.


Who :

One of the most unique festivals on the planet, Lop Buri’s Monkey Festival entices travelers of all stripes and itineraries to witness what is quite possibly the most unique buffet in the world.

Appropriate Attire :

Since the festival takes place primarily on the temple grounds of Pra Sam Yot, it’s best for foreign visitors to dress modestly by covering their shoulders, arms, and legs as a sign of respect for the religious site.

Candace Washington - October 2013

If you want to get the most out of your trip to Thailand and have a personalized experience that you will enjoy the entire way, book with Easy Tours of Thailand. We had a fantastic time.

The Thai food was amazing and our guide knew the best local and authentic places to dine. The amount of knowledge and insight our guide had about each site, and Thai culture overall, was so helpful. We could have visited these sites on our own, but having our guide along the way really gave us an entirely different perspective and made our experiences seem "full."

Our guides made sure we arrived to popular sites ahead of big tour groups so that we could get the best photo ops (they acted as great amateur photographers too!), and also guided us to amazing 'off the beaten track' areas that I am so glad we didn't miss. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel in the morning everything was expertly taken care of the whole way.

We were also provided a private driver and vehicle that was air conditioned (very important!) and safely driven. All things considered, the price of the tour is very reasonable and well worth the money.

I would highly recommend Easy Tours of Thailand to anyone thinking about doing a similar tour.
