The historical park contains ruins of historical period similar to the Angkor found in Cambodia. In the information center signs in Thai and English explain the history. Prepare a hat and sunscreen as there is not much shade in the area. In about two hours...More

Ancient site, well preserved, worth to visit to learn. Spend about an hour to walk around. Dont forget to visit Phimai National Museum nearby to cover all related articles. Protect yourself from the sun on sunny day and drink much water.
