    Sisaket is one of the lesser visited destinations on Thailand’s train network. Most of the passengers on the train from Bangkok, particularly the tourists, will be headed to better known destinations such as Ayutthaya, Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasim, Surin and Udon Ratchathani at the end of the line. The two big attractions for visitors to Sisaket are the Khmer temples and the stunning scenery in Sisaket Province. If you are planning to visit the Preah Vihear ruins (the most famous of the Khmer temples in Thailand) then you need to leave the train in Sisaket and continue your journey by road. Closer to Sisaket town (about 4 km away) is Pra That Ruang Rong temple and 61 km from Sisaket town is Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew, which is a Buddhist temple made entirely from glass bottles. Meter taxis are available from in front of Sisaket train station.
