What to see in Surin

The city of Surin in itself does not have much interesting to visit. Its most notable temples are Wat Burapharam and Wat Sala Loy. Red city Pillar Shrine in Khmer style and Surin National Museum that the city is very proud are often mentioned among the things to see in the town. But the most interesting places are outside of Surin. The Province has many small Khmer ruins. Except for Mueang Thi and Sikhoraphum on the railway road, there are not easily accessible by public transportation. It is therefore essential to have a vehicuke to fully enjoy visiting the area. Khmer ruins are quite modest and often very small. They can definitly not compete with Phimai and Phanom Rung temples in neighboring provinces. The the most interesting visit near Surin is going to the very popular with children Elephant Study Center at around 50 kilometers from Surin.
