Prior to my visit, I had been sceptic. It was not necessary. The site is awesome. I honestly can only recommend it to all - it is truly beautiful. I spent 3 hours there. Took many interesting photos. Go and enjoy!

The route map in TripAdvisor has directed us to wrong place. It has wasted 45 minutes of our journey. There no such temple in the area that you stated/marked in your map.

Plenty to see and discover, the site is not that big but we can see similar art and sculptures than Ankorwat but of course cannot be compared. Worth swing if in the region.

The Phimai Historical site is a great place to visit if you are into Thai history and well preserved archeological sites. Not as large as impressive as Sukhotai or Si Satchanalai, but well worth the time to visit. The connection to Angkor Wat via history...More
