Sisaket is the capital of the province with the same name, located in northeast Thailand. Having a central location in the region, visitors get to experience the heart of Isaan. Khmer ruins and local cuisine make this an attractive getaway destination. The nearest airport to access the region is found in Ubon Ratchathani.
Sisaket can serve as a great base for those who would like to explore the surrounding region. The city is the gateway to the Preah Vhear ruins, a world famous cliff-top Khmer sanctuary. Pra That Ruang Rong is said to be well worth a visit and is only 4 kilometers outside the city. But the most unique experience of all will be had at Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew
, more commonly known as Wat Lan Khuad or Temple of a Million Bottles. The entire complex is comprised of glass bottles, and even the pictures on the wall are made of bottle caps. In between visits to the sites of Sisaket are opportunities to enjoy the fantastic cuisine of the Isaan region. A variety of fruits are also grown in the region, including rambutan and durian. Those looking to broaden their horizons can head out to explore Anlong Veng to the south in Cambodia or Ubon Ratchathani, the capital city of the neighboring province.
