The city of Buriram is located in northeast Thailand’s Isaan region in the province of Buriram. From Bangkok, Buriram is easily accessed either by bus, car, or the small Buriram Airport
, which serves as a hub for local carriers. Perhaps the easiest and most popular way to get to Buriram is from Bangkok’s Mo Chit bus terminal, which offers relatively frequent between the city and Buriram.
This small city has a very significant place in regional history, dating back to pre-historic ruins from the Dvaravati period, as well as being home to several sandstone sanctuaries that date back to the ancient Khmer period. For those so-inclined, the Buriram Northeast Culture Center
is a great place to start studying the many artifacts and archaeological objects that are collected there, alongside many pieces of folk art.
The natural beauty of this whole region can’t be denied, and can be easily seen at places such as the Khao Kradong Forest Park
, which is home to a now-extinct volcano. At the top of the volcano is the large statue of Buddha that’s often seen on postcards of the city, and people often use this site as a place to relax.
