I was impressed with this site. It is a place well suited to taking a leisurely meander around. Not over-crowded, we had plenty of opportunity to look things over and take photographs of these scenic Khmer ruins.

I hopped on a motorcycle, and scoured the area for these monuments, armed with a good map and a GPS. Stop first at the Phimai Museum if you need help locating these ruins.
