If you are staying in this area of Thailand, this is a must see. Many photo opportunities, there is a nice shop for food, drinks, icecream, and a row of souvenir stores also, which were very well priced.

We visited Phanom Rung on a day trip with Prasad Muang Tam, both in Buriram Province. There are also many other ancient Khmer temples in the nearby vicinity. We did a two-day road trip from Bangkok, spending the first day and night in nearby Phimai (about 1.5 hours away). Phanom Rung is located on a mountaintop that is supposedly an... More

A long drive from Khao Yai but it was worth the time spent on the road. A beautiful place that offers a look into the past. Be careful as some of the steps are very steep.

I have been to many historical parks chasing photographs. This ranks amongst the best. It has unique architecture and an ancient forest feel.

This temple is a unique one in Thailand. (In the area are a few more to visit. Ask the local tourist information center they will help you.) Also known as Phnom Rung Historical Park. We are used to the Buddhist temples of Thailand but this goes toward Angkor Wat style. ( Not difficult the rulers were related to the same... More

A few hours drive from Khao Yai but totally worth the effort . Some steep steps and may not be suitable for older folks with weak knees. No issue using Google map to navigate from city ,

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
