The visit to the "monkey temple" exceeded expectations. Monkeys were friendly and provided you follow basic rules (no food, no glasses or other things they could steal) no problem to the visitor.

We were a bit skeptical about going here cause of all the negative reviews talking about being bitten by monkeys & we weren’t here long enough to get the rabies vaccine (it’s too expensive in the US) but it was actually great! There are guys...More

Beautiful ruins, but not worth leaving Ayutthaya. There are monkeys everywhere. All through the town nearest the ruins. Do not really need to pay the entrance fee to take photos and see monkeys.
