General Information about Nang Rong
Nang Rong city is about 50 km south from Buriram, tourists mostly know it because it is a good place to settle down to visit Phanom Rung temple, a magnificent Khmer temple perched on an extinct volcano. At 28 kilometers from the temple, nang Rong is the last real town before Phanom Rung Historical Park. In its neighbourhood, the countryside and rice paddies and some Khmer remains. The most visited are Phanom Rung temple with its long paved walkway above the big staircase leading to the temple and Prasat Hin Muang Tam, a beautifully restored small temple, a model of its kind with its four basins (8 km from Phanom Rung). Even in Cambodia, there is no temple on this kind as complete as Muang Tam temple.
The city itself has no tourist attraction. besides the night market, there is not much evening entertainment. If you leave in the early morning, it is possible to visit the temples and come back by bus (2h30 per trip) in the same day from Nakhon Ratchasima. But it is better to take your time and sleep in Nang Rong. Especially since in the morning before 10:30, there are fewer visitors in Phanom Rung.
