We came to Phimai on a half day trip from Korat (an hour and a half bus ride from the bus station) and we really enjoyed it. It wasn't crowded so we could wander around in peace which made it for a really pleasant experience.
The park is small enough and well maintained. Unfortunately, the museum was closed when we were there but the walk around the ruins was sufficient for us to be happy with what we saw.
