Well preserved Angkorian sanctuary, well worth visiting. Good little visitor centre, friendly helpful staff. For me, this is one of the lesser known 'must see' sites in Thailand.

We paid 100 Baths each to see this Phimai historical Park. There is no much things to see, and it's overpriced for what it is. Nevertheless, there is a good atmosphere there, and it's a good place to breathe and have a break, walking around.....More

I was impressed with this site. It is a place well suited to taking a leisurely meander around. Not over-crowded, we had plenty of opportunity to look things over and take photographs of these scenic Khmer ruins.

Entrance fee 100bath and 20bath for thais, great place to visit and very easy site to enjoy without any hassles. Stayed at a hotel within easy walking distance also very reasonable price.

Entrance fee of 20 Baht for Thai people but multiply that by 5 if you are not Thai. Having recently visited Anchor Wat I was really looking forward to seeing this historical park but unfortunately it is not what I expected! New blocks replacing the...More

Phimai Historical Park used to be a religious Khmer sanctuary. Most of he ruins are still in good condition. It is right in Phimai town centre. If you visit the site at weekends, there are students from a Phimai secondary school acting as your tour...More

Phimai History Park probably impressed me more than any of Ayutthaya, Si Satchanalai, Kaemphen Paet, and Sukhothai, as the whole city centre of the ancient city is well-preserved, and the visitor's centre gives you a ton of information on Khmer culture. It is quiet enough...More
