Khorat doesn't wear its heart on its sleeve. Only those sporting a hefty set of rose-tinted specs will be reaching for their camera as they step off the bus in the brash gateway to the northeast. A bumper dose of urban hubbub reflects the city's affluence, and Khorat's one-time historic charm has been largely smothered under a duvet of homogenous development.

Day Wise Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival At Bangkok And Transfer To Korat
- Depart from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, which is beautifully located on an island at the confluence of three rivers. Visit Wat Chaiwattanaram occupying a magnificent position on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. Drive through the historical part of this former capital of Siam and then continue to Phimai. En route visit of a local fruit market at Klang Dong. Lunch at local restaurant. Continue to the charming little town of Phimai northeast of Korat, known for the magnificent Khmer sanctuary of Prasat Hin.

Dinner and overnight at Dusit Princess Korat

Day 2: Korat To Surin
- After breakfast, visit the pottery village of Dan Kwian. The region of Korat is famous for its beautifully crafted pottery. Continue to Phanom Rung, which is the finest Khmer Temple in Thailand and gives more than only a good idea of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Similar in layout to Phimai, both monuments are believed to have been the prototype for the famous Angkor Wat. Close by there is Muang Tam, another impressive Khmer temple predating Phanom Rung by about 120 years.
- After lunch at a local restaurant, proceed to the silk weaving village of Ban Nong Sang Nga. The village consists of roughly 150 houses with 600 inhabitants. Villagers engage in breeding silk worms, spinning the yarn and weaving silk. Nearly every house has a loom and villagers are very friendly and hospitable. Continue to Surin and check-in at the hotel. Dinner and overnight at Thong Tarin Hotel.
