The Miracle & Sacred of Phnom Rung (3-5 April)

I have not witnessed this astrological phenomenon myself but it looks beautiful.

The TAT has a wonderful post regarding the location of this historical park and how you can get there (Nok Air fly domestic).

Thailand Travel also has a wonderful description.
