Buriram Province

The city of Buriram is a friendly place, but lacks much of interest to tourists. The southern reaches of the province, on the other hand, have some of Thailand's must-see Khmer relics. The countryside is peppered with dozens of ancient ruins, the crowning glory of which is Phanom Rung, a beautifully restored complex climbing to the summit of an extinct volcano. The most spectacular Angkor monument in Thailand, Phanom Rung is well worth the journey and should impress even those who've already experienced Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
