If you are in Korat you should visit Phimai, it is only an hour drive away. You should keep in mind to avoid a visit around noon if it is sunny because it is simply to hot to enjoy the views.

Korat isn't the most picturesque city so it's nice to get out of the city and out to here. Same Khmer style as Angkor Wat in Cambodia so save your cash and come to Korat :) There is a nice area nearby with a lake, market stalls and a statue of a Thai boxer. A nice day out.

If you are on rush or just few days in Thailand, is much more interesting old stone to see than Phimai, the 800 years old stupa structure are not well kept, some of them have been badly repair, and some others one are worth to be seen, they are also spattered around and if you not choose the right one, you could be desapointed , as well to do nice photos is not easy as it look, you have a lot of seller or people selling anything on site, place the other aspect, the sites are not well kept, people throw paper, plastic and a lot of object on the floor as well on the walls. Not all the sites are paying site, most of the places are entrance free, for the simple reason they are at the middle of local houses or local markets. It also a social and meeting venue for youngsters.
If you come by car, is no problem to park, Phimai is like a little village not far from Korat (Nakhorn Ratchisima), on the "road" of Khmer temples.

Well restored, well maintained small Khmer ruin. A small museum on site as well. Well worth a visit. Parking is easy. Bring an umbrella for the sun.

Best historical tourist attraction in the area. The architecture is very different compared to Europe and the area is well preserved.
