A beautifull peacefull place! Very quit and serene environment. Not many tourist so you have all the time in the world to look around, enjoy and make great pictures. Together with a visit to the Temple of Prasat Muang Tam a great way to spend your day.

This was a great example of Khmer ruins. I also went a little further from there and saw Prasat Ban Pluang (beautiful, small ruins around a pool) and Prasat Ban Phlai in the same day. If you are at all interested in architecture you have to see these Khmer ruins. They are a good compliment to Ayyutthaya and show a... More

The weather was perfect. The park got ready for the New Year crowd. While the facility might use some upgrading....nothing can hide the fact that work and effort was put here. Clean, well maintained. DO NOT forget to pay a visit to Prasat Muang Tam. Without a doubt, it is worth it.

In Buriram, another province of Isaan. A must see. Its a bit of walking with uneven small brick stairs that are crumbling in some spots. But at the end of it, lovely architecture and lovely photo opportunities and selfies (if your a solo traveller like me) A small fee for the entrance ticket and you can wander around as long... More

This is an amazing site, a mini Siem Reap style temple in Thailand without the huge cost or crowds. Wonderfully preserved, easy to get too and see. It's not a hard walk once you get there, but like all ancient sites the ground is very uneven. If in Buriram you really do need to visit or you just can't get... More

Bring comfortable shoes, sun screen and a camera. Just an amazing setting and plenty of good Thai food available near the parking lot. Double pricing, but T.I.T. for the actual Park admission.

We were fascinated on how this manmade marvels was built. It's amazing place very serene. It is best to go there early around 8:30-9am because there's not much crowd yet. And thus u can really feel how peaceful the place is.

Saturday afternoon, so Phanom Rung was busy, which I personally didn’t like. I’ve visited a few times in the past 3 decades and always enjoy the visit. It’s a must-see Thailand sight but it’s not one of my favourite Khmer sites probably due to the amount of people. Situated on top of a hill so good views. About an hour... More

We have been traveling to ancient capitals in Thailand and Myanmar for five weeks. This was well worth the road trip and overnight stays is some out if the way cities and limited hotel choices. Frankly, I recommend this site over Sukhothai. I prefer the Khmer design, and its grand entrance is more impressive than anywhere at Sukhothai. If you... More

perched on a steep hill, this is the most beautiful Khmer temple in Thailand in my opinion. I recommend to access from the lower parking deck. Climbing the long flight of stairs is a little bit tiresome, but allows you to better enjoy the grandeur and impressiveness of the temple complex. Best time to go is late afternoon, when sun...
