Phanom Rung Historical Park with a distinct Khmer architectural influence is one of the most diverse national parks with temples, towers, Buddha and Hindu images, and certainly one of the most important and most visited Khmer sites in Thailand. The day which attracts the highest number of visitors is when the sun’s rays pass through the fifteen portals of the... More

We rode our scooters down from Buriram (130 km round trip) which is easy to do in Thailand. Great day out and well worth the trip. It is like the baby brother to Angkor Wat and obviously part of the same extended empire. There are far less tourists however and very few farangs and although there are local stalls there... More

Well worth the trip from outside Lam Prai Mat. Have not been to Ankor Wat so no comparisons. Just seemed to be so well preserved and peaceful. The walk up is truly great. Beautiful gardens and great to be at altitude to see the surrounds. Highly recommended although a bit off most people's radar

Beautiful Khmer ruins. The best part is the long straight walkway up to the temple. Also interesting is that that there are many doorways at the top - all exactly in line.

I visit this place more than ten times in my life. This is the amazing human made form natural resources. I am wondering how could human can be done this without the machinery. This is proof that we have develop something called sciences since that era. Super cool place to see sun through 15 gates!!! Please check out the schedule.

These ruins are well worth a visit. A lot of step's to climb but the view is spectacular. It does get very hot but thankfully there are trees around so you can just sit and relax.

Prasat Hin Phanom Rung is a place you must see if you are in the Buriram area. The ruins are in good condition and the view is great.

visiting Phanom Rung gives you two choices of parking your car, entering the park. But when you take the upper parking lot you'll enter the temple complex from the back, without seeing the stairs, the Naga-bridge, the walkway. Therefore, to really see Phanom Rung you need to take the lower parking lot, to climb some stairs, walk the walkway, cross... More
