Phimai historical park Nai Mueang Nakhon Ratchasima Thailand
The next day morning I visited the Phimai Historical Park. The park itself is located right in the center of the town just a few blocks away from the guesthouse. With 100 bhat entrance fee you get a water bottle and a pamphlet with details on the architecture of the temple complex and short history of the temple which would be very informative for a self guided tour. The temple which was initially built as a Hindu shrine must have been later converted to Buddhism just like Angkor Wat. Someone who had already visited Angkor Wat in Cambodia would recognize it's striking similarity in the built style with that of Prasat Phimai but this one is in a much smaller scale. The temple itself wouldn't take more an hour to explore, but I spent some good 2-3 hours, walking around the temple complex and relaxing in the grassy grounds of the park around. The whole time I was in the park, there were hardly a couple of dozen tourists visited and most of them were locals.

Weekend Getaways from Buriram
200 Kms from Buriram
We took a private shuttle from Poipet to Siem Reap. We reached Siem Reap at around 11 PM in the night. But the place where we were dropped wasn’t the place we had to go. These locals are not trustworthy and they are like minded. The shuttle dropped us in the location that is far away from the Siem Reap city and that is the place where you get Tuk-Tuks (Motorcycle/Rickshaw Mashup). This guy who walked in to the shuttle kind of scared everyone since we refused to pay the money. We refused to pay because the deal was to drop us in the hotel and not in some dark alley on the back roads of Siem Reap. There were two foreigners along with us, who got scared and paid the money the Tuk-Tuk guys asked and went with them to the hotel. Please do not judge us as heroes... But we are in no position to pay the money for what they have done. We walked all the way towards the hotel ( roughly 4 kms ).. The trick here was to use the offline maps by Triposo Inc that we pre-loaded to our mobile prior to the trip. We are the #GeoGeeks and we are built to do this kind of stuff.
