we were on our way from the south to Khon Kaen and decided for a little detour to see this temple. And it was well worth it. In contrast to the other temples we say this one was so tranquil, quite - since we were the only tourists. We parked our car and just strolled around, walked the temple. Amazing!

It can't compare to Phanom Rung or Phimai, or even Muang Tam and Sikhoraphum, but this Khmer ruin has enough original carvings left and has undergone a good enough renovation that you will surely enjoy a visit. And, unlike the first three of those other bigger and better Khmer ruins, you will most likely have Pueai Noi all to yourself... More

Located about 44 km south of Khon Kaen. Well taken care off and easy to reach ... if you have your own transport.

Another beautiful example (yet not so big) of Khmer architecture of the "Greater Khmer Kingdom" stretching over most of what we now call Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. This prasat is a bit out of the way but there are good signs to get there. It is south-west of Khon Kaen city.

This sacred Hindu temple is free to the traveller and has three brick pagodas and fabulous carved doors. Make sure you travel in the cooler season as it can be very hot climing through the ruins
