Around Nakhon Ratchasima hotels and hostels
Many families are part of an award-winning homestay program where villagers put up visitors in their homes and show them daily activities like basketry and farming. Reservations should be made at least a day in advance.

From the front there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot to this hotel, but there are plenty of good-for-the-price rooms behind the scenes. Standards are high (the dorms have lockers) and the rooms are big and airy.

This quiet and immaculate little place at the back of the block won't excite you, but it won't let you down either.
