Prasat Phanom Rung is the Palace on the hill just a few kilometres NW of Muang Tam, to which I introduced you a couple of days back.
It is very tourist-oriented, with quite a lot of souvenir stalls on the walk from the large buspark to the steps and promenade to the main buildings. Phanom Rung has been extensively renovated, and the result is an impressive site. There are enough of the original, ornately carved, sandstone blocks to illustrate what a wondrous place this must have been 900+ years ago. Despite the possibility of being caught in a writhing mass of selfie-stick wielding tour groups, it is worth a visit.
Ben and Naomi interacted with the locals.
