Buriram



 


What :

Almost a quarter of the Khmer ruins in Thailand are located in the countryside surrounding Buriram. This small, provincial capital is a quaint and relaxing destination far from the hectic streets of Bangkok.

Of the numerous ruins left by the Khmer Empire in the Isan region of Northeastern Thailand, the crown jewel is surely Phanom Rung. The largest Khmer structure in Thailand, Phanom Rung caps the summit of a dormant volcano like a crown beckoning travelers on luxury tours of Thailand to explore its ancient secrets.

Phanom Rung Historical Park maintains the temple grounds, and the restoration of the sprawling complex took 17 years. A Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva, many of the statues and decorative friezes are intact. The well-restored temple grounds are representative of the apex of Khmer architecture.


When :

The best weather is from November to January here. Rainfall during the monsoon season running from June through October causes the country side to bloom a lush green. The highest temperatures fall between March and May.


Where :

The capital of Buriram Province, Buriram Town lies in the rural northeast of Thailand close to the border of Cambodia. Best reached by private vehicle, the province and the many Khmer ruins provide a window into the past of the culturally diverse Isan region for guests on Thailand tours.


Who :

Though remote, history and architecture buffs find the area’s many Khmer ruins a sightseeing opportunity that cannot easily be passed up.


Appropriate Attire :

Western-wear is fine in town, but if you’re heading out to enjoy the majestic countryside dress for a hike.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
