Buri Ram

Buri Ram is located about 412km from Bangkok and Surin a 40km further along the route from Nakhorn Ratchasima (Khorat) to Ubon Ratchatani. The towns themselves are not particularly interesting, but some of the surrounding countryside is quite scenic.

Getting There

Air-conditioned buses leave Bangkok's Northern Bus Terminal at regular intervals throughout the day for the 5 hour journey to Buri Ram. There are also regular bus services from Nakhorn Ratchasima (Khorat).

Trains depart from Hua Lampong Station in Bangkok several times per day, and take about 7 hours to reach Buri Ram

An alternate route to the north east is from Chonburi to Nakorn Ratchasima (Khorat), which goes through the spectacular scenery of Kao Yai national park.

Getting around

Songthaews are the best means of getting around the town. Your hotel may be able to arrange a car and driver for longer trips.

Things to do

From both towns it is a short trip to the historical Khmer sites of Phanom Rung

Surin is famous for the annual elephant roundup, held in November
