The Sor Srisompong camp « glorious Sompong » is in the village of Chom Phra in 30 kilometers of the city of Surin, in the region of the northeast. It is a typical camp, lost in the countryside, at the heart of the region of Isaan. Near the camp, in fields, buffaloes graze peacefully, hens peck in front of the entrance of the camp, the place is peaceful, quiet, but invaded by mosquito…
On the right of the camp, a small home-made arena was built to welcome fighting cocks. Generally, it is the weekend that people of the camp organize its secret fights of cock, one moment of relaxation where bets are opened!
Sor Srisompong was created by Sompong Supawat Thana, businessman and politician of the region of Surin.
