Korat overview

Korat Travel Guide
Korat is a large city in the Issan province of the same name and like many destinations, it has a military hero. But unlike most other places, Koratís military hero is a woman. A monument that stands in remembrance to the heroine who saved hundreds of lives during an attack on the region many years ago and an annual festival dedicated to her is also worth checking out. Korat is commonly referred to as Nakorn Ratchasima and like the rest of the region of Issan, it boasts its own individual style and culture. Only 15kms outside of Korat is Khao Yai National Park and here the virgin jungle is alive with wild elephants, squawking hornbills and mischievous monkeys. A guide is a useful service to make use of if you want to avoid getting lost in the maze-like forests!
