Trip to Nakhon Ratchasima: Day 02

This is now our second day exploring the sites of Nakhon Ratchasima. Yesterday we explored and stayed in Wang Nam Khiao district but today we visited three more districts. Tonight we are staying in Pak Chong. We spent the morning at the agro-tourism site at Jim Thompson Farm. Then after lunch we visited the giant Erawan Elephant at Wat Ban Rai. Then we had a quick visit to Khao Yai Floating Market. This won’t be opening fully until February next year. These are some of the pictures that I tweeted today:

    Thank you very much for your pictures of Wat Ban Rai. Does this wat have a Buddhist hell garden? One of your pictures looks like underworld.

      It doesn’t have a Hell Garden as such but some of the sculptures around the giant elephant depict hell.
