Ruin Religious Site
Known by the locals as Wat Yai, Phra Si Ratana Temple (Wat Yai) was built in the 14th century and is now famous for its gold Buddha sculpture, which some consider to be one of the most beautiful of its kind in Thailand. When you view the sculpture, look for its halo that signifies the spiritual radiance of Buddha. Also admire the wood-and-pearl ordination hall doors and the Ayutthaya-style pagoda. Check out the attraction's museum, too, and browse through Buddha images and artifacts from the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya eras.

Where to stay in Phitsanulok

Since Phitsanulok holidays are not popular with tourists, the city offers little in the way of accommodations. Budget and mid-range hotels cluster around the city center and generally offer comfortable rooms and amenities. It's always a good idea to see the room before paying if you want to avoid cold showers and questionably clean beds. More upscale accommodations may offer access to onsite nightclubs and meal buffets, but do not expect five-star hotels while touring Phitsanulok.
