This is where the annual Surin Elephant Round-Up, which attracts visitors from all over the world is held. Held in November, this is one of the biggest events in the Northeast. The people of this part of the Northeast have for centuries been renown for their skill in capturing and training wild elephants and the round-up, featuring some 100 elephants, is an extravaganza that pays respect to this tradition. The spectacular show includes demonstrations of elephant capture, their work skills, games and a thrilling mock battle with elephants dressed in the war regalia of olden times.

Khao Yai National Park

Located southwest of Nakhon Ratchasima, Khao Yai is perhaps the best known of Thailand's national parks. Covering 2,172 sq. km of protected forest, jungle and grassland spread over rolling hills and mountains, the park is traversed by paved roads, as well as by a dozen marked walking trails. Vantage points afford spectacular panoramic views, while waterfalls add to the considerable scenic attraction. The wildlife population includes at least 25 kinds of larger mammals, as well as more than 300 species of birds and countless butterflies.
