Traditional city pillar – this one is easy to miss.
Nom Neay Bakery & Coffee
It bills itself as a bakery, but this little place near the historical park entrance also does international and Thai food quite well....

Phimai National Museum information
After a recent renovation this is now one of the best museums in Isan and well worth a visit. Situated on the banks of Sa Kwan, a 12th-century Khmer reservoir, the museum consists of two spacious buildings housing a fine collection of Khmer sculptures from Phimai, including many exquisite lintels, and other ruins around Lower Isan. There's also some distinctive black Phimai pottery (500 BC–AD 500) and Buddha images from various periods.
