Phanom Ring is a Khamer temple on top of a dormant volcano. At this time there was no charge due to the death of the king. This Temple was built to Hindu Gods. The site isn't hard to find and is well signposted. There are a lot of steps to climb if you have challenged mobility but there is a... More

Phanom Rung is not an easy place to get to. It is situated on the top of an extinct volcano in the middle of the countryside and public transport options are scant to non-existent. Therefore, it is not the easiest or most obvious choice for people on a tight budget. Still, you can get yourself a ride on a motorcycle... More

Really enjoyed taking photographs at this location. Took minivan from Buriram to Nang Rong bus station for 38THB/per person and then hired a driver who was waiting at the station to get to the Historical Park. Amazing opportunity to visit this park.

Phanom Rung, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is unforgettable and I truly hope I revisit it again one day. It's a Khmer temple, built by the same civilization as that which built Angkor Wat, which was the main temple and capital of the Empire. I prefer Phanom Rung because it seems architecturally perfect, and is in excellent condition. It's set... More

I love history, and ancient Southeast Asian history is fascinating. I love ruins, and I love the history behind them. What I hate are crowds. I loved the Angkor Complex, there's really nothing in the world like it, but it's becoming overrun with tour buses filled with tourists. Good luck trying take a photo without ten other people taking selfies.... More

- beautiful (not as much as Angkor Wat) but still very impressive - many history fact to learn about - maybe not suitable for wheelchair - in April, the road to Phanom Rung will be full of yellow flower trees
