Nakhon Ratchasima Province :

          The city of various Khmer ruins and the famous statue of Khun Ying Mo named Nakhon Ratchasima or commonly known as "Khorat" is situated on a plateau, about 260 kms northeast of Bangkok. The city itself serves as the gateway to the northeastern region. It is Thailand’s largest province and is the main transportation, industrial and economic hub of the northeast. People are extremely warm and friendly.

         Popular tourist destinations include the Monument of Thao Suranari, built to commemorate the heroic deeds of Khun Ying Mo, wife of the Deputy Governor of Khorat during the reign of King Rama III, who managed to save the city from the invasion of the Laotian army led by Prince Anuwong of Vientiane. Located in Nakhon Ratchasima are several important religious places including Wat Phra Narai Maharat, housing the sacred image of Lord Narayana in sandstone; Wat Sala Loi, which is constructed in the shape of Chinese Junk; the 3000 years old monastery Wat Khoa Chan Ngam, which is famous for its pre-historic rock paintings; the Phra Non Sema, with its reclining Buddha image made of red sand stone which is the most ancient and largest in Thailand; and the famous Wat Na Phra That, with its beautiful mural paintings from the early Rattanakosin period.

          Nakhon Ratchasima Province boasts one of the best national parks in the world, Khao Yai National Park. Bestowed with one of the world’s largest monsoon forests, this park has high species richness, including a very good population of birds, wild elephants, bears, tigers and leopards. The Park comprises various mountains, two important rivers of Lam Takhong and Nakhon Nayok, with over 20 waterfalls. Favorite activities in the park include butterfly and bird watching, animal watching and trekking.

          Lam Takhong Dam and the Lam Phra Phloeng Dam with their beautiful surroundings are ideal spots for relaxation and attract a large number of tourists. Rafting on Lam Takhong is a very popular sport among the tourists. Phimai Boat Racing, an annual festival held during October or November, draws thousands of tourists to witness the exciting event.

          There are both air-conditioned and ordinary buses available to Nakhon Ratchasima Province, which leave the Northern Bus Terminal (Mochit 2 Bus Terminal) in Bangkok every few minutes. There are two ordinary trains and one express train leaving from Bangkok's Hua Lamphong Station at fixed timings.
