Orientation in Nakhon Ratchasima
Nakhon Ratchasima is located 2 km to the west of Suan Rak Park, which is on the western side of the old town. At one time Nakhon Ratchasima was a walled city with a moat, like the old town area of Chiang Mai. The wall has disappeared long ago, but the moat is still there.
Nakhon Ratchasima’s old town area is 1.5 km long and 1 km wide. It’s a run down part of the city with lots of low rise concrete buildings in desperate need of renovation or demolition. Within this decaying city centre are some of the city’s most interesting cultural attractions and it’s best nightlife.
