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.

Accommodations in Buriram

In Buriram, the choice of accommodation to sleep is quite limited. There are very few hotels and even less guest houses. If you are looking to find a room near the Bus Terminal, go on Han Chana Road or Bu Lamduan Road. There are some other places to stay scattered in the city.

Must-visits in Buriram

Phanom Rung

พนมรุ้ง
My 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.

Weather & climate in Buriram

Buriram has a tropical savanna climate. Winters (from December to February) are particularly dry. The rainy season begins in mid-April and ends in November when you have ponctual brief torrential rainfall. In May and September rains are more important. Temperatures remain warm even during the monsoon season.

The best time to come to Buriram is from December to the end of March. The rest of the year, you have heavy punctual showers but before and after them, in general, the weather is quite pleasant. Maybe avoid to come here in ay and Spetember, the rainiest months of the year.
