surin is a large province in the Mun River Basin of Thailand’s Northeastern Isan region. Although the exact History of the town itself is not well known, the people of the region have always been highly regarded for a particular skill: capturing and taming elephants. The Suay or Kuay (meaning simply “people”) migrated to the area perhaps thousands of years ago and established a reputation for their elephant handling prowess that is still celebrated to this day. In addition to elephants, Surin features many ruins from the era when the Khmer of Angkor controlled the region, and Surin is also known for producing beautiful silk and growing Thailand’s famous jasmine rice.

Some interesting spots include City Pillar Shrine, formerly, there was just a shrine not the pillar for over 100 years, later the place was redesigned by the Fine Arts Department, and the 3-meter-high wooden pillar of Java Cassia was placed in the shrine; Huai Saneng, a Reservoir of the Surin Irrigation Project; Luang Phor Phra Chee in Wat Burapharam, a sacred Buddha image in the posture of subduing Mara which is highly respected and worshipped by Surin people.

Surin is popular for its local products are silk, cotton cloth, wickerwork, silverware, carved ivory, preserved radish, white pork sausages, grilled pork, and pork floss.
