Who Lives in Buriram?

Hot and dusty, not unlike neighboring Cambodia. Slightly less boring than other Isaan provinces, thanks to having a race track and Thailand's finest soccer team. Generally friendly, laid back countryside people.

 

Personally, I wouldn't want to live there, but I've enjoyed my short visits.

 

 

 

Think that sums it up pretty well. It's got more going for it than elsewhere in Isaan, nice people, nice to visit, but wouldn't want to live there.

I spent my last 3 years in Buriram. It wasn't my original plan but I'm stuck here due to some private matters. I can tell you that it is dead boring, hardly anyone speak English, the province is not b

Yes, bar girls, dear me, it's a good job that here in Pattaya we all marry Thai investment bankers and astrophysicists, lol.

My relationship with Buriram goes back about 15 years as my wife is from there. Go there regularly although not so much the last few years.    Important to differentiate between the town and

That is actually one of the reasons we are inquiring about other provinces, as she doesn't want to live too close to her parents.  Occasional visits are fine, but we both prefer privacy.

 

Greatly appreciate the responses everyone, seems like it might be a good place for a visit but relatively similar to other provinces in Isaan.

I love my Thai family and lived with them for near 20 years... wonderful people... though not from Buriram - and not drinkers and gamblers and borrowers... 

 

others experiences surely differ.. 

 

we actually have in laws of one sister from Buriram and they are awful... I hope that is not a norm..

Obviously its a matter of personal preference but some people have been a little unfair to Buriram - if we are talking about the city.  Granted there isn't a lot to do for a foreigner but the city has changed beyond all recognition in recent years.  If you're a motor sport fan then its not so bad although personally, I wouldn't want to live there - but neither would I want to live in most places on the plain of Isaan - jeez it gets hot in summer and there's very little shelter.  If you're a person that likes to sit out on the porch and do nothing all day - a 'waiting for god' sort, you'll be fine anywhere, including Buriram.

 

I guess it all depends on what you're looking for - my nearest city is Pak Chong, more of a big town really.  When I first moved there I thought there was very little there that interested me.  A year or so later I'd discovered plenty of decent bars (one farang bar), snooker clubs, nightclubs and some very good restaurants.  Not sure the same can be found in Buriram but I have had a couple of excellent nights at Speed Disco 😀.

 

As a foreigner, I think the best way to describe Buriram is - its just too far, its too far from anywhere.

 

To the guy who said Korat is boring - clean your glasses and put the beer down.

That's what we had heard.  Figured it was worth asking some of the experts here that have had boots on the ground for years 🙂

 

Thanks for the comments everyone, keep them coming, really enjoying the read.
