What to see in Nakhon Ratchasima

In Nakhon Ratchasima city people mostly visit temples but the province offers more interesting treasures. The khmer temple in Phimai for example or Phanom Rung temple in the neighboring province of Buriram. In the evening, those who love popular atmospheres will dine with pleasure at 100 Pee Muang Ya Market not far from the train station.

Must-visits in Nakhon Ratchasima

Phanom Rung Nakhon Ratchasima

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.

Other visits suggestions in Nakhon Ratchasima

  • Wat Bun
    in the street of one of the two night markets, it has no real architectural merit except his wooden building maybe
  • Maha Wirawong Museum
    This museum houses objects from the province. Wood carvings, bronze or stone Buddha sculpture from Ayutthaya or Khmer period and various objects of everyday life (Wat Suchinda, Tel: 044 242 958 - Open Wednesday to Sunday from 9 am to 4:30 p.m.)
  • Prasat Hin Phimai
    at 60 kilometers from Nakhon Ratchasima, the city of Phimai has one of the most beautiful Khmer temples in Thailand. The Prasat Hin Phimai (in Phimai Historical Park) has much in common with Angkor Wat even if it is much smaller.
  • Phanom Rung
    This temple visit is often combined with the visit of the very pretty Prasat Muang Tam. More than 80 kilometers from Nakhon Ratchasima, the Phanom Rung is mainly impressive because of its large paved driveway that ends with the great staircase leading to the temple built on the heights of an ancient volcano. A masterpiece of Khmer architecture.
  • Prasat Muang Tam
    Charming little Khmer temple, beautifully restored, 8 km away from Phanom Rung Historical Park. With its four pools filled with water lilies, this temple is a real gem.
  • Dan Kwian Pottery Village
    The villagers use clay from river banks and traditional techniques to make their pottery. It is located about 15 kilometers from Nakhon Ratchasima
  • Khao Yai National Park
    The most famous of the country, among the most beautiful national parks in the world and UNESCO listed, it is a rendezvous for nature, flora and fauna lovers. About hundred kilometers far, it is not very practical to visit it and come back to Nakhon Ratchasima on the same day. It is better to settle down in Pak Chong, the nearest city.
