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

Phimai temple Nakhon Ratchasima

Phimai temple

ปราสาทหินพิมาย
My opinion :
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.
Khao Yai National Park Nakhon Ratchasima

Khao Yai National Park

เขาใหญ่
My opinion :
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.
