About travel to Nakhon Ratchasima


Nakhon Ratchasima, known locally as Korat, is one of Thailand’s largest cities. The city centre itself has over 120,000 permanent residents and the larger metropolitan area has nearly half a million inhabitants. Nakhon Ratchasima itself is not one of Thailand’s more beautiful cities. The city centre is dominated by newer concrete buildings built alongside busy multi-lane road that pass through the city centre on route to nearby Bangkok. Nakhon Ratchasima has lots of facilities, including three major shopping malls: The Mall, Terminal 21 and Central Korat. The city centre also has lots of hotels, restaurants and bars. Not many of these cater specifically to foreign visitors because the city doesn’t receive that many. For Western food try some of the establishments on or near the Suranee Road, such as the Monkey Bar.

Nakhon Ratchasima has a small historic city centre area, once fully enclosed by a moat. The city’ main tourist attraction is the Ya Mo Shrine in Suan Rak Park on the Western edge of the old town area. According to local legend, Ya Mo (Grandmother Mo) organised the local people in an armed rebellion against a short lived occupation of the city by an army from Laos during the 19th Century. The more interesting local attractions are located some distance from Nakhon Ratchasima itself, the foremost of these being the Khao Yai National Park. The northern entrance to the Khao National Park is located 112 km by road from Nakhon Ratchasima city centre. Also worth visiting are the province’s Khmer era temple complexes of the Phimai Historical Park, 62 km by road from Nakhon Ratchasima, and Phanom Rung Historical Park, which is 128 km away from Nakhon Ratchasima city.
