You can take the train. Korat will be your first stop, then Surin. While you in the area, you should check out the temples at Phimai, Phanom Rung and Muang Thom. Well worth the effort.

You will reach Korat first, then Surin. Korat is about 3 hours drive from Bkk and around 2 hours drive from Korat to Surin. Wat ban rai is in Dan Khun Thod district which is around half hour before reach Korat town. Taxi is the convenient way and you can go direct to Wat ban rai.

Beside Taxi, bus, train, more option, after April 19, 2008 there's a new low cost airline "Air Phoenix" operate flight from Bangkok to Korat. for more detail call +66 2973 3860

Well but Korat airport is 30 km away from town and its in other side of the town from Wat ban rai.

You can take a taxi if you want but that will be the most expensive way to go! You can also take a bus to Khorat. AFTER you get to Khorat you can splurge on a taxi! I think it was around 4 hours by bus, a taxi would be pretty expensive!

Good luck.

If you do go to Surin, you might check on a ride to Si Saket too! In Si Saket you can visit Khao Phra Viharn. This wat is in Cambodia but you can only access it from the Thailand side.

Not sure when you plan to travel there but I just heard that they intend to start domestic flights to Korat in mid May. My friend who lives there thinks it will be Finnair who will do the flights. If you need a good English speaking taxi driver you can call Kittipan Ananpark at 081-8571878. He speaks good English and you can just call him Noom.

Candle Festival (Khao Phansa)

by Wann

I attend this festival and event almost every year, Khao Phansa Event. It's one of the most important events in the religious calendar. It be held in the eighth lunar month in July every year. Khao Phansa refers to the beginning of the Buddhist Lent.

During this time, Buddhist monks are restricted to their temples for a period of three months. Thai Buddhists will celebrate Khao Phansa in Buddhist temples in many provinces and Candle Festival is part of it. The days before the event, local people make ornately carved beeswax candles of various sizes and shapes.

On the festival day, the candles that each represents their district, are paraded around the town, accompanied by displays of religious devotion. After the procession, they are presented to local temples.

Nakhon Ratchasima

"Thao Suranari or Khun Ying Mo"

The city of Nakhon Ratchisima, also known as "Korat", is situated on a plateau, about 260 kilometers northeast of Bangkok. The city itself is commonly referred to as the Gateway to the Northeast. Like other parts of the Northeast, Korat was an important part of the ancient Khmer civilization, evidence still visible today by various ruins still standing in and around the city. The famous monument of Thao Suranari or Khun Ying Mo can also be found in Korat. It is situated in front of the old gate of "Pratu Chumpon" on the west side of the city. This monument was erected in 1934 to commemorate the heroic deed of Khun Ying Mo, wife of the Deputy Governor of Khorat during the reign of King Rama III, who managed to save the city from the invasion of the Laotian army led by Price Anuwong of Vientian.

"Prasat Hin Pimai"

Prasat Hin Pimai, Nakorn Ratchasima, features the largest group of Khmer buildings in Thailand, underscoring its importance as an important gateway to the Khmer kingdom in the south. The rectangular floor plan of old Phimai can still be traced on the ground while the four symmetrical gateways are clearly visible. The southern gate Pratuchai at the far end of the town's main street still stands facing Angkor Wat in Cambodia. During the height of the Khmer period a road linked the important site of Phimai with the capital Angkor. Phimai is one of the best examples of classical Khmer architecture in the style of Angkor Wat, outside Cambodia.
