There is not much to do in the town other than visit the Khymer ruins, but these are spectacular and completely justify the journey East. The Mahayana Buddhist temple is known as Prasat Hin Phimai, and is one of the biggest religous sanctuaries in Thailand. It is over 1000 years old and it is pretty amazing. Considering the scale of the ruins the place was pretty much empty, which made the whole experience better and was a nice change from many other saturated sites that I have been to before..
Tomorrow I am getting the bus up to Khon Kaen, and either stopping of there or taking a 10 hour bus ride up to Northern Thailand before I enter Laos.
