it is worth to visit if you wold be close to this place - not so big as Angkor Wat, but in a good condition (it was restored). the temple was built at the top of extinct volcano, so there are nice view from the temple. Not to easy to get to this place, so you have to rent a... More

The setting is beautiful and the staircase is imposing. Well worth the trip and a day tour. Not easy to climb for people who are a bit unsure on their feet but manageable for most. Great restoration and good explanations. Much smaller than Angkor Wat but well worth it.

I visited Angkor Wat and this is almost the same. Except it is on a extinct volcano. The views are outstanding and it is an enjoyable place to visit in Thailand. Make sure you go into the museum to see how this area was restored. I will go back again. Many people in Thailand have not been to this location.... More

If you do not have the opportunity to visit Angkor Wat Historical Site in Cambodia, the Phanom Rung Historical Park is a very good site to visit in Thailand. From the approach, you will see the long stretch of stairs leading to the temple situated high up on the hill. The multi-layer of courts indicated the well planning of the... More

Use gate 3 to enter the temple and you will experience how magical this place is but if you want to save a walk use gate 1 where you can arrival to the temple without stair climbing. The entire temple is well maintain, and since its location, you can have a very good up there as well.

I had seen many photos of this old temple but nothing prepared me for the stunning architecture that unfolded before as I reached the top of the first steps. Looking down the avenue to the next set of steps that take you up to the main building you are drawn in by the beauty of the place which is on... More

We had a wonderful afternoon exploring this temple. Well worth the visit if you can get there. It sits at the top of an extinct volcano so it is a challenging, but beautiful, hike to the top. It is possible to drive to the top if you so chose.

These ruins where built on an summit of a spent volcano. The ruins are simply stunning, There are two entrances Gate 1 and 3 Make sure you take gate 1 so you can have the stunning view on arrival of the ruin. Arriving there is not so simple basically you can get a bus until Ban Tako or Ban Ta... More
