Sydney Seasons, Steak House & Restaurant Surin

The write up is good, but it does not say how good this place really is. The décor is typically Thai, however the food is not and the beer and other drinks are icy cold. Very good Thai food is available, so is pasta, their specialty is steak. I have dined there many times and I know that it is the best steak in Thailand.  The cook trained in cooking college in Sydney so he knows what westerners like. So if you are in Surin do not miss this place.

were traditionally excellent at capturing elephants in Cambodia, then training them as working animals. Civil war in Cambodia and the elephant’s decreasing economic importance has forced the elephant handlers (mahouts) to turn to entertainment to make a living.


The event consists of a series of shows displaying the strength and skill of the animals, such as football games and tugs of war. Elephant Round Up and Elephant breakfast

The Elephant Breakfast is a small part of the festival and is held on the Friday morning. A procession of up to over 280 elephants (2012) start marching through Surin city from the railway station area toward the Elephant roundabout at the south end of the city on the Prasat road.

The elephants carry dignitaries and also some tourists who dismount their steeds on arrival. Some elephants carry mahouts in authentic battle outfits from the Thai – Khmer – Laos battles. Intermingled with the elephant procession are local school children and teachers in traditional dress, dancing and playing music.First Birthday Supplies at BirthdayinaBox.com

Once all the elephants have arrived then the banquet can begin, the tables of fruits are quickly cleared by the large team of elephants. Whatever leftovers there may be is not lost, as the local people take the leftovers to their own homes. Continue reading

Surin is a town in Thailand capital of Surin province

Surin is a town in Thailand, capital of Surin province. It is the site of the annual Surin Elephant Round up. As of 2012, Surin had a population of 48,582

The first syllable Sur- originates from the Sanskrit word Sura meaning God (of. Asura), and the word In-tar from Sanskrit is Indra, Hence the name of the province literally means Lord Indra.

In the north of the province is the valley of the Mun River, a tributary of the Mekong. To the south of the province is the Dongrek mountain chain, which also forms the boundary to Cambodia. The central and northern parts of the province are undulating flood plains.

With the collapse of the Khmer Empire in the 13th century Surin province faded from history. It is in the 18th century that it re-emerges. At this time a Kuay local leader named Chiangpum became the royally appointed ruler of the region. According to legend he presented a rare white elephant to the Chao Phaya Chakri, future King Rama I.

gratitude, Chiangpum was awarded the royal title Luang Surin Phakdi and appointed the village headman. When Rama I became the Thai monarch, he appointed Luang Surin Phakdi as the province’s governor. In 1763 the village was moved to the location of the modern city of Surin, and was upgraded to a city with the name Muang Prathai Saman. There is a local legend that this move was due to better water supplies at the new site. Also, that the original location of the town was at Muang Thi, approximately fifthteen kilometres to the east of the modern city. In 1786, the city’s name was changed to Surin in honour of its governor. Continue reading
