Ideally located in the center of Korat on the upper levels of the Terminal 21 Department Store, Centre Point Hotel Terminal 21 Korat is the perfect base for exploring the city of Korat and surrounding areas.
Korat, also known as Nakhon Ractchasima, is located approximately 260 kms north east of Bangkok, and 190 kms from Khon Kaen, the nearest large city. Korat is known as one of the big four cities of Isaan and is located on the Korat plateau. The area itself has a long and complicated history. At different times it has come under the influence of the ancient Khmer and Ayutthaya kingdoms, and it has also been influenced heavily by the culture of Laos, as well as several indigenous groups. All this has combined to make it a unique and fascinating region with a distinct culture and atmosphere.
Korat is easily reached from Bangkok by road or rail. If you choose to come by car or one of the buses that leave Mochit terminal several times an hour 24 hours a day, the journey will take you about 4 hours. There is also the option of arriving by train, which takes a little longer.
Korat itself is a fairly spread out city, but there are many transport options for taking both short and long trips, including Grab and meter taxis, Song Taews, motorbike taxis, and eve TukTuks. For trips to places further outside the city it is also easy to arrange hiring a private car.
