There are a number of places to fish in Buriram City and the surrounding area. A drive anywhere outside the downtown area or in a nearby village is a good place to start.  There are local rivers and bodies of water as well as designated fishing ponds which charge an entrance fee. The latter, where an entrance fee is required, often hold competitions – the individual who catches the heaviest fish wins a sum of money.  In regards to undesignated fishing areas, it is recommended you ask locals if fishing is allowed.
