I is mainly a modern garrison town where visitors to the city are Thais on a day trip from Bangkok to see the historic sights and the fields of sunflowers. For the foreign tourist, the easiest way to get to Lopburi is by train. The main sights of the historic city are a short walk from the train station. There are several trains between Bangkok and Lopburi every day, mainly in the morning and evening hours to serve commuters.
