Travel Thailand, Si Sa Ket

Si Sa Ket was originally called Muang Khu Khan with its origins in the Khmer empire between the 10th and 12th century. Its modern history dates back to 1759, during the Ayutthaya period, when it was upgraded from a town to city.

It was officially named Si Sa Ket in 1938. Twelve restored Khmer ruins have secured this province a place in the popular lower Isan itineraries that start in Nakhon Ratchasima and conclude in Ubon Ratchathani, 75 km to the east.

The province covers 8,839 square kilometres and is divided into 14 districts and six sub-districts. Located 517 km from Bangkok, the town is on the Bangkok to Ubon Ratchathani railway line and 55 km north of Highway 24 on Highway 22.

Si Sa Ket Attractions:
Somdej Phra Srinakarin Park was established to commemorate the Princess Mother's 80th birthday. Teh 100-acre park is located at the Si Sa Ket Agriculture College, 2 km from town. From early March, when the city celebrates with a festival, to late April the park's Lamduan flowers are in full bloom.

Prasat Hin Wat Sa Kamphaeng Noi is an ancient Khmer building dating back to the reign of the Khmer King Suryavaraman in the 12th century. The sanctuary, which may have served as a hospital at one time, is located 10 km from town on Highway 226.

Prasat Hin Wat Sa Kamphaeng Yai in Uthumphon Phisai district, 28 km from Si Sa Ket on Highway 226, is believed to have been built in the 11th century. The original Khmer sanctuary was used for Hindu ceremonies before becoming a Hinayana Buddhist temple.

Prasat Prang Ku is made up of three ancient Khmer pagodas located 10 km from town is Prang Ku district. Once the site of Brahman rituals, the pagodas probably date back to the 11th century.

Prasat Done Tuan stands on a high cliff on the Thai-Cambodian border, 38 km from Kantharalak district. It was built in the 11 century.

Prasat Khao Phra Vihan, 106 km from Si Sa Ket town, is a splendid Khmer ruin just across the border in Cambodia. Perched on a 600 metre-high hill, the complex was built by a succession of Khmer kings between the 10th and 12th centuries. Constructed in Papuan and early Angkor styles, Khao Phra Vihan originally served as a Hindu temple.

Even though Thailand and Cambodia have concluded travel agreements, tourists should consult the TAT before making any plans to visit Khao Phra Vihan. The nearest town in Si Sa Ket is Kanthralak, 11 km from Khao Phra Vihan.

Festival
Dok Lamduan Festival
is held every year on the first weekend of March at Somdej Srinakarin Park.

The festival celebrates the culture of Si Sa Ket with art and dance performances, exhibitions and shops selling local products.

The highlight is a light and sound show depicting the history of the province.
