  • It is a monument known as the Joan of arc of the Thailand ladies. Visitors always incessantly, enthusiastic person how great was the floor. Visited also illuminated by lights at night James picture under the blazing sun of the day is nice, but if you want to see take a look at it. Monuments that are dear to the citizens, and children to roller skate at James front square at night in the square.

  • Important to visit Korat... the area is clean and organized .. flowers available even in night time. Get to see local life around the area. I recommend all visitors to pay respect to Thai Suranaree
