Travel Thailand, Nakhon Ratchasima

Nakhon Ratchasima, 260 km from Bangkok, is the first Isan province on Highway 2 that rises over the hills that separate central Thailand from the northeastern plateau. With a population of 2.4 million, the province dominates Isan. The modern provincial town spreads out on all sides of the old rectangular moat, and the reconstructed city gates remain with the former centre, turned into a bustling market, while the rest of the new town is the commercial and business hub for the lower Northeast region.

Nakhon Ratchasima Attractions:
Khao Yai National Park is part of the mountain chain that divides the Northeast Plateau from the central plains and Cambodia to the southeast. Khao Yai, which means "Big Mountain", was established in 1962 as Thailand's first national park. The park has over 20 waterfalls, the most famous of which is the 25-metre-high Haeo Suwat. The park headquarters stands 40 km off a road running southeast from Highway 2, 165 km from Bangkok and approximately 100 km from Nakhon Ratchasima.

Prasat Hin Nang Ram has the ruins of a structure thought to be a hospital. Built as early as the 11th century, the site is in Prathai district, 88 km from Korat.

Pak Thong Chai, a small town known for its silk weaving, is located 32 km south of town. Pak Thong Chai is famous for its beautiful hand-dyed mudmee silk. The town has seen resurgence in productivity since Queen Sirikit established her Support Programme to help local weavers. Tourists can see weavers practicing their art and pick up some good bargains at the same time.
 

After shopping, an excursion to Wat Na Phra That, 5 km away, is highly recommended. Built in the reign of Rama III, the temple's main chapel has some exquisite mural paintings of the Buddha's 10 incarnations. In the middle of a pond, standing on piles, is the temple's library. The woodcarvings on its doors are particularly well done. Lam Phra Phloeng Dam, also in Pak Thong Chai district, is a popular place for relaxation due to its beautiful scenery. Boats can be rented for cruises on the reservoir. A pleasant side-trip to nearby Khlong Ki Waterfall is an option. Numerous small open-air restaurants in the area are ideal for relaxing meals.

Ban Prasat is an archaeological site in Non Song district, 45 km from town. It is the second site in the Northeast to be developed as an outdoor museum by the government. Parts of 60 human skeletons have been unearthed there along with earthenware and assorted bronze ornaments. Ban Prasat seems to have been first inhabited 2,500 to 3,000 years ago. There is also evidence of later settlements that existed during the Dvaravati and Khmer periods.

Dan Kwian, 15 km southeast of Korat, is famous for its pottery. The clay from the banks of the Mun River has a high iron content which results in the characteristic metallic finish of Dan Kwian pottery. The hand-made products, which have been produced in the village for generations, range from a wide variety of decorative items to ong, or traditional water jars. More
