  • A walk in the Park could be found many temples. It is quite possible see best to visit on foot. The bike could not access everywhere to start with the heights to see other beautiful plants and end up in the middle of thousands of birds

  • Great historical park; not quite as perfect and big as the ones in sukhothai and ayutthaya, but still fantastic; rent a bicycle to visit the widespread area!
  • Staying at Legendha Sukhothai resort in Old Town area. It takes less than an hour to get to Si Satchanalai Historical Park. The view along the route is pleasant. Green rice paddies everywhere and can see some local events along the way. This heritage site is a must visit place as well as Sukhothai Historical Park.
  • It's a tranquil and peaceful place fit for a walk (maybe better in winter) and a bicycle ride.
  • great overlooked park.
  • Great ambiente and very secluded. Nicr place to visit in combination with Sukhothai
