About Nakhon Ratchasima
Most visitors to Nakhon Ratchasima come to the city on the way to one or more of three major attractions in the area: the Khao Yai National Park, the area around Pak Chong, and Phimai Historical Park. Phimai Historical Park is 62 km from Nakhon Ratchasima and accessible by frequent bus services from Nakhon Ratchasima Bus Terminal 2. Phimai Historical Park is a Khmer temple reminiscent of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, although on a much smaller scale, and some of the structures in Phimai Historical Park pre-date those of Angkor Wat.
For people opting to stay in Nakhon Ratchasima, known locally as Khorat, there are two places in the city centre which are well worth visiting. One of those places is Suan Rak Park, which is municipal park located between the road from the railway station and the old town. Suan Rak Park features a lake, some interesting modern sculptures and a statute and shrine to Ya Mo, the city’s most famous person. According to legend Ya Mo (Grandmother Mo) led a rebellion by the city’s inhabitants against their Cambodian rulers liberating the city and return control to the Siamese. The other place in Nakhon Ratchasima which we recommend that you visit is Wat Phra Narai Maharat. Wat Phra Narai Maharat is a temple on an island surrounded by a lake. The temple is famous for very old sandstone statues of Vishnu houses within the temples and the monitor lizards living in the lake which have grown to a large size having been fed and protected by the monks at the temple.
