Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) bus station, buses to Phimai and Nang Rong

We found the bus station in Khorat (Nakhon Ratchasima) somewhat confusing. Infact finding the platforms where buses to Phimai or to Nang Rong (Phanom Rung) leave can be hard because routes are written only in Thai... and no one spoke any english.

To help other travelers the bus stop nr 12 is going to Nong Rang, departures every hour from 6 AM, after 12 noon buses are not so frequent. Trip takes about 2 hours and tickets (70 Baht) are sold before boarding from the man near the column.
To go to Phimai you need to go in the back "alley"of the main bus area, bus stop nr 43, it takes 1.5 hrs to get there, every 30 minutes, 60 Baht and tickets are sold on the bus.

You can definitely take songthaews nr 7 or 15 to get to the bus station, only 8 Baht vs 100 fix fare with a taxi.
They run on Mahathai rd continuing to Rajadamnern Rd to exit the center.
To go back from the bus station you ned to find a songthaew running in the opposite direction, not always an easy task. Just try asking the driver "city center". It worked with us.
