Forests, rivers, plants and wildlife are natural resources having nourished Sisaket people for a long period of time.  There are also many beautiful tourist attractions recommended.

Si Sa Ket province is located in the southern portion of Thailand’s Northeastern Isan region. As Si Sa Ket borders Cambodia there are a number of Khmer ruins throughout the region and the history of the provincial capital is believed to date back to the Angkorian era. The greatest of these ruins in the region, and one of the most spectacular Khmer temples ever constructed, is Preah Vihear. Phra Vihan, as it is referred to in Thai, is a temple that was constructed atop a cliffside escarpment that lies across the border in Cambodia but is far more accessible as a day trip from Si Sa Ket, where Prasat Khao Phra Wihan National Park contains a number of decent sights prior to crossing the border.

In addition to architectural diversity, Si Sa Ket contains many ethnic tribes, including Suay, Lao, Khmer, and Yer that have settled in the province over the centuries. Old town Si Sa Ket, formerly known as Muang Kukhan, was located at Ban Prasat Si Liam Dong Lamduan, in present Tambon Duan Yai, Amphoe Wang Hin, but was relocated to its present location during the reign of King Rama V, around one hundred years ago.


Rich with Khmer Ruins, Si Sa Ket is an interesting destination. In addition to serving as the gateway to visit Preah Vihear (Phra Vihan), the cliff-top Khmer temple across the border in Cambodia, the province has plenty of fruit, such as rambutan and durian, which are available at the beginning of rainy season.

    Sisaket is one of the provinces of Thailand with a long history, and one of a place of ancient civilization which blends well with diverse traditions especially ancient Khmer and Isaan (northeastern) tradition.  That makes Sisaket is an interesting province with its unique tradition. 

    Forests, rivers, plants and wildlife are natural resources having nourished Sisaket people for a long period of time.  There are also many beautiful tourist attractions recommended.

    At present, Sisaket has 20 districts – Mueang, Yang Chum Noi, Kantrararom, Kantraralak, Khukhan, Phrai Bueng, Prang Ku, Khun Han, Rasi Salai, Uthumphon, Phisai, Bueng Bun, Huai Thap Than, Non Khun, Si Rattana, Nam Kliang, Wang Hin, Phu Sing, Mueang Chan, Benchalak, and Phayu, and 2 sub-districts – Pho Si Suwan, Sila Lat.

    Si Sa Ket province is located in the southern portion of Thailand’s Northeastern Isan region. As Si Sa Ket borders Cambodia there are a number of Khmer ruins throughout the region and the history of the provincial capital is believed to date back to the Angkorian era. The greatest of these ruins in the region, and one of the most spectacular Khmer temples ever constructed, is Preah Vihear. Phra Vihan, as it is referred to in Thai, is a temple that was constructed atop a cliffside escarpment that lies across the border in Cambodia but is far more accessible as a day trip from Si Sa Ket, where Prasat Khao Phra Wihan National Park contains a number of decent sights prior to crossing the border.

    In addition to architectural diversity, Si Sa Ket contains many ethnic tribes, including Suay, Lao, Khmer, and Yer that have settled in the province over the centuries. Old town Si Sa Ket, formerly known as Muang Kukhan, was located at Ban Prasat Si Liam Dong Lamduan, in present Tambon Duan Yai, Amphoe Wang Hin, but was relocated to its present location during the reign of King Rama V, around one hundred years ago.


    Rich with Khmer Ruins, Si Sa Ket is an interesting destination. In addition to serving as the gateway to visit Preah Vihear (Phra Vihan), the cliff-top Khmer temple across the border in Cambodia, the province has plenty of fruit, such as rambutan and durian, which are available at the beginning of rainy season.
