Traveling to the city of Buriram by bus is fairly easy. Most major cities have buses leaving for Buriram, although not all cities have direct lines. This is generally dependent on the city’s proximity to Buriram. The further your starting point, the greater the possibility of transferring buses.
Buses from Bangkok, Pattaya, Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat), Khon Kaen, Roi Et, Surin, Chiang Mai, Rayon, Chanthaburi, Sa Kaeo and Ubon Ratchathani run regularly to Buriram.
Should your destination be one of the smaller cities in Buriram province, you may have to initially travel to Buriram City, then transfer. Please note, often buses to smaller cities in the province stop fairly early (i.e. 6 pm). It is recommended to take this into consideration when traveling and make the necessary arrangements prior, should you have the option.
