Nakhon Ratchasima, the hub of Northeastern Thailand
Nakhon Ratchasima, commonly called Korat in Thailand, is one of the four major cities of the country’s eastern region Isan. Before the 14th century CE, Korat was under the influence of the Khmer empire, although it is believed that the city wasn’t as important as the nearby city of Phimai. The city also marked the border between Lao and Siamese territory in the late 1700’s, and it was from here that the Siamese kingdom supervised the Lao and Khmer states under its control.
And there you have it, my Nakhon Ratchasima visit. Watch our for my photos about Phimai next.
I’ve recently resumed photography after a year’s hiatus, with a particular focus on black and white photography. This is a challenge for me since, with images devoid of color, I have to be more conscious of using light, dark, and shadow in taking my photos. If you have any comments, then leave them below. 😀
