STAYING IN BURIRAM
Nestled in Thailand's mostly rural northeast, Buriram is a surprising and quickly developing small city dubbed Thailand's 'city of sports'. From humble agrarian beginnings, Buriram has cemented its place on the map through savvy development of world-class sporting infrastructure - namely the Chang International Circuit and Chang Arena. Both Thais and international visitors flock to Buriram every year to see the Thailand International MotoGP, a fixture since the 2018 MotoGP season. Moreover, Chang Arena is the largest club-owned stadium in Thailand, the home ground of Buriram United and a thoroughly contemporary venue that meets both FIFA and the AFC's rigorous standards. If you're a lover of sports, then Buriram is quite possibly the best city in Thailand for you.
Beyond the adrenaline and cheers, Buriram is also the gateway to northeastern Thailand's rich and fascinating history. From Buddhist temples to leftover echoes of the Khmer Empire, the region around Buriram boasts over sixty historic temples and ancient structures from the zenith of the Khmer Empire's reach, many of them only a short journey from your hotel in Buriram. Add the region's flavourful local takes on Thailand's distinctive cuisine and you’ll find plenty to see and do during your stay.
