Lopburi Monkey Buffet Festival 2020

The annual feast is a thank-you to Lopburi’s resident monkeys who are a major tourist drawcard.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) extends an invitation to all to experience the famous annual ‘Lopburi Monkey Buffet Festival’, which in 2020 will take place on Sunday, 29 November, at 09.00, 12.00 and 16.00 Hrs.

Each year the annual event, which is normally held on the last Sunday of November, is put on by the people of Lopburi town for the hundreds upon hundreds of resident, free-roaming monkeys for which the town has become famous.

First staged in the 1980s as the idea of a local hotel owner, the feast is a way of saying thank you to the monkeys who have over the years become a major drawcard for tourists, and who are today a symbol of the province.

Banquet tables laden with colourful fruits and snacks are set up for the monkeys at the town’s Wat Phra Prang Sam Yot and Wat San Phra Kan temples, attracting a throng of tourists who snap picture after picture of the monkey masses as they gobble away.

Lopburi town is just under 150 km north of Bangkok and there are daily train and bus services available. By train the journey is around one and a half hours and by road around three hours.

Festival-goers might also like to take in Lopburi’s stunning sunflower fields which are in bloom from November to January in a bright display of vibrant yellow.
