What we say: 3 stars

Khorat is home to many beautiful temples and a few are sure to entice strolling passers-by.

For something different, Wat Phayap, boasting the Cave in the City, is home to a cavernous stalactite covered sanctuary. Buddha statues serenely sit and soak up the ambiance.

The dear head on the wall further complicates the mysterious vibe. Just a few steps from the centre of the city, this enigmatic place is worth a peek.
