General Information about Buriram

Buriram (literally the pleasant town) is one of the smallest provincial capital city in Thailand. This very rural region was part of the Khmer Empire for over four centuries and has many remains of this time. The most striking one is the Phanom Rung. That is for him that people come here and it worth it. Located on top of an extinct volcano it is one of the most interesting monuments in the country. Besides the temple itself, the large paved walkway and the stairs leading to the temple make it a unique place. Prasat Muang Tam, nearby also worth a visit. It has been beautifully restored.
Generally, travelers prefer to stay in Nang Rong, the last town before these two temples and a few dozen kilometers from Buriram. Moreover, some accommodation, just outside the city, offer a very pleasant rustic scenery. Buriram, however, can be a good base for exploring the region and its sixty Khmer temples.

Phanom Rung Buriram

Phanom Rung

Our opinion :
Khmer temple built on top of an extinct volcano . You access to it by a long paved walkway and a beautiful staircase. Very unique! With the temple of Phimai, these are the two finest Khmer temples in Thailand.

Our opinion :
8 km from the Phanom Rung, this small Khmer temple has been wonderfully restored. A visit to do before or after Phanom Rung visit.
