What to see in Phimai

In Phimai the Khmer temple, the pride of the city, often make forget that there are other interesting things to see also. At the top of the list stands the Sai Ngam extraordinary park. We also like its popular night market.

Must-visit places in Phimai


Sai Ngam ( Banyan Tree )

My opinion :
Park formed by the roots and branches of one single tree. Its located on a little pond.

Phimai temple

My opinion :
which houses Prasat Phimai, one of the finest examples of Khmer temple in Thailand. Its architecture reminds of Angkor Wat in many ways.

Phimai National Museum

My opinion :
This small museum is a great introduction to the history of Phimai and the region when it was ruled by the Khmer Empire. it helps to set the context when visiting Prasat Hin Phimai, the city's Khmer temple.
