Having gone through extensive redevelopment over the last few years, I think we can safely say, Buriram city centre is indeed a beautiful place to be.
Due to the ongoing work of Buriram council, slowly but surely the centre of Buriram has become increasingly pleasing to the eye year on year.
Specifically the moats, waterways, parks and pedestrian parts of town have seen significant rejuvenation over the past little while. It really seems that the heart of Buriram City centre has been given a complete and thorough makeover.
City Center Moat or “Klong” Lined With Red Paving Stones
The lining of the moats with red paving stones and trees, has created picturesque and relaxing walks. And for some these features have become popular running spots. Many parts however, are discretely hidden away and undiscovered by most.

During morning time, walkers can watch the sun rise as they circle the shimmering water. After the heat of the day and as it cools in the evening, more brisk walkers can be seen going round the waterways alongside many runners.
Right In the centre of town, sits the favourite klong circuit for walkers and runners.
Walkers And Runners Favourite City Centre Spot
The planting of flowers and trees in the happy park area has created a beautiful fully grown garden where once lay ugly waste land and rubble. This is right next to the new Walking St.

More Park Area
Attracting a hub of activity, the improvements to the town centre, have made space for leisurely walking, exercising, markets, outdoor massage and more. Even a large roofing dome, covering the main aerobics area in town, has been built.
The effect of all of this is that despite being in a city environment, residents of Buriram now have the great advantage and pleasure of a verdant and lush city centre.
They can come here to exercise, relax, take a calming walk in the evening or even go shopping at the walking street market.
