Angkor Wat listed in World Wonder List is only a few hour’s drive from Buriram and is a must see destination.

It is located about six kilometress north of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Angkor Wat was built in the first half of the 12th century by King Suryavaiman II. The estimated construction time was 30 years.

We are fortunate to have in the Buriram Province, Isaan Angkor Tours who organize regular tours to this amazing destination and have one coming up in the next couple of weeks.

Having been on one of their tours with some friends last year, we at the Buriram Times can thoroughly recommend the service provided by Ray and Nick at Isaan Angkor Tours which are well-organized and great value.
