Khmer temples

Lots to choose from

What we say: 4 stars

Phnom Rung is also served by local bus from Prasart town but Muan Tam -- a further six kilometres down the road unfortunately isn't. If you are interested in taking in the area's main temple sites, then it's worthwhile splashing out on a day tour from Pirom-Aree's Guesthouse otherwise you're going to require plenty of time and energy.

Aside from Ta Muan and Sikhoraphum, there are numerous other smaller Khmer ruins in Prasart and Sangkha districts, and many are hard to find. Indeed some of the more interesting ones have no signs whatsoever whereas some of the best signposted ones are of little or no interest such as Prasart Muang Thi on the way to Sikoraphum and Prasart Trapaeng Tia in Lamduan district.

Some of these sites can be fairly difficult to reach without your own transport so if you don't have a bicycle or motorbike you could consider taking one of Pirom's excellent tours.

If you do have your own transport then just cruising around the friendly local villages can be fun and plenty more spots offer noteworthy sights such as the Ban Bu Thom basketry village (12 kilometres east of Surin), the Ban Tha Sawang silk weaving village (10 kilometres north of Surin) and Khwao Sinarin Handicrafts village (silk and silver, 18 kilometres north). Arm yourself with a free TAT map and off you go.
