The rest of the world has long gotten South-East Asia wrong. Historically, the Europeans saw it as just a source of timber, spices and cheap labor. Today many see it as a source of a cheap beach holiday. The Chinese always viewed it as the...More

Entrance fee of 20 Baht for Thai people but multiply that by 5 if you are not Thai. Having recently visited Anchor Wat I was really looking forward to seeing this historical park but unfortunately it is not what I expected! New blocks replacing the...More

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.

Nicely restored Khmer temple. Don't expect something like the Angkor, it is only one temple, not as well preserved as some is the temples in Siem Reap, but is very peaceful, not many visitors; great place to relax and enjoy this impressive building.

These are some of the best Khmer ruins to visit in Thailand. They are right in the middle of the city which makes them very easy to get to. When I visited it was free but I think it is about 100 Baht to get...More

Well preserved Angkorian sanctuary, well worth visiting. Good little visitor centre, friendly helpful staff. For me, this is one of the lesser known 'must see' sites in Thailand.

We paid 100 Baths each to see this Phimai historical Park. There is no much things to see, and it's overpriced for what it is. Nevertheless, there is a good atmosphere there, and it's a good place to breathe and have a break, walking around.....More

As one of the blueprints for the famous Angkor Wat, this ancient temple is a relaxing low key stroll through history. If you rush, you can finish this in 15 minutes, but I would suggest taking your time and go near sundown, when the setting...More

I was impressed with this site. It is a place well suited to taking a leisurely meander around. Not over-crowded, we had plenty of opportunity to look things over and take photographs of these scenic Khmer ruins.
