Visit Nakhon Ratchasima

Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat, is a picturesque province in northeast Thailand. Rich in culture and history, Nakhon Ratchasima has plenty to offer visitors. The centuries-old Khmer temple of Phimai Historical Park is a must-see for tourists; the complex contains ancient artifacts and ruins, as well as an archaeological museum with details on the area's past. Nature lovers should visit Khao Yai National Park to explore the lush jungle scenery and spot exotic wildlife like elephants and gibbons.

The city of Nakhon Ratchasima itself boasts several attractions including Pratu Chompu (Victory Gate), an ancient entrance gate that served as a checkpoint for travelers entering the city during its early days. In addition, Wat Sala Loi is one of the oldest temples in town and features a large reclining Buddha statue made of brick and mortar.

An interesting historical fact about Nakhon Ratchasima is that it was once part of Cambodia until 1786 when it was annexed by Thailand's King Taksin. Since then, it has been an important hub for trade between Cambodia and Thailand due to its strategic location close to both countries' borders.
