Visiting the Prasat Puay Noi in Pueai Noi

Traveling in Thailand
Prasat Puay Noi in Pueai Noi in North-East Thailand

Reposting from 2018. While on the way back home from a friend in Nong Song Hong we made a small side-seeing tour and followed the signs Pueai Noi where the ancient Khmer temple ruin Ku Pueai Noi is. It is not a big complex (in compare to Prasat Phimai) and consists only of 1 structure with 3 main buildings and is claimed to be from 11th - 12th century. It is in very good (renovated) condition and has beautiful lintels. But well worth a visit if you are in the area anyway or if you are like me and you love to visit the old Khmer ruins that are actually all over what we now call Thailand, even up to Sakhon Nakhon you find ancient Khmer ruins!

Getting there

Coming from Khon Kaen city just follow route 2 south (in direction of Nakon Ratchasima) and at Ban Phai take a left turn to route 23 and at Hin Tan take a right turn to route #2301 and follow that until you see a sign for Pueai Noi following route 2297. The prasat is on your right hand side just before the village (while on your left hand side is a small lake). Be aware that the name Pueai Noi is also written as Puay Noi.

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
