Phimai

Orientation

The town's two principal roads, Anantajinda and Tha Songkran, intersect at the digital clock tower. Attractions and services are mostly concentrated on the east-west running main road, Anantajinda, while north-south running Tha Songkran (which turns into Route 206) leads in and out of town.

Banks are plentiful and offer the standard withdrawal and exchange services. Most have 24-hour ATMs. ATMs can also be found attached to the town's convenience stores, three of which are within easy walking distance of the Prasat and are open 24 hours.

Just adjacent to the Prasat, a tourist police booth offers a good selection of maps and area information. 

The post office lies on the western border of the park -- from the Prasat, go past the tourist police and take the first right. The post office is a block and a half up on the left.

Bicycles (20B per hour or 100B per day) and motorbikes (250 B per day) can be hired at Boonsiri Guesthousefor. Should Boonsiri's motorbikes be taken, you can also rent one at the Honda shop on the main road just over the river, also for 250 B per day -- be sure to bring your passport as you'll need to leave that as a deposit on the motorbike.

Internet is available at Boonsiri, Paradise Apartments, and Phimai Inn for 30 B per hour. Alternately, there's a proper internet café by the name of J Net (20 B/hr) at the corner of Sa Songkran and Chom Sa (Rte. 206), just northeast of the Prasat.

Phimai Hospital is about 2 km out of town toward Korat on Route 206.
