Visit the cradle of Thai civilization at Si Satchanalai Historical Park, a World Heritage Site featuring the ruins of the former city of Si Satchanalai. The ancient city was the second city in the Sukhothai Kingdom, and the residence of the crown prince in the 13th and 14th century. Today the site documents early Thai architecture, sculpture, and art. Wander the grounds to see ancient Buddha figures, palace buildings, and ruined temples, all in a setting of deep green trees, bushes, and lawns. You can tour the ruins on foot, by bike, or take a leisurely tram ride. Si Satchanalai Historical Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Sukhothai Edition.

  • It is the most beautiful very well preserved temple of the historic site of Sukhothai to do absolutely, you can rent bicycles at the entrance

  • We stayed in Sukhothai, the report starts from this town. The Park is located a few Km from the most famous Park of Sukhothai and I heard someone say that the visit to the Si Satchanalai you can jump. If we stop to consider the ancient ruins and the Majesty of the temples might be true, if we are interested in a historical journey on the ancient Kingdom of Sukhothai becomes unmissable. To go we preferred to take a car and driver to 2000Bht for the whole day, the alternative would have been the bus going northward, it might have been even more distinctive. The first thing that strikes you is the almost complete lack of facilities for making money on tourists, and then actually missing tourists, or better, the number is significantly lower than that seen in Sukhothai, which already hosts on average far less than other pa RTI in the country. Virtually indispensable rent a bike in view of the extension of the Park and to enjoy the entire location, well cared for, almost entirely flat surrounded by greenery. An authentic paradise with its temples and its Chedi of architectures and from different eras. I don't think it should be "skipped" as visiting if you have that extra day in this central area of Thailand

  • This place is magical. More so than Sukhothai, in my view. If only because, at least in the morning, you’ll have it all to yourself! The hills too are amazing.
  • Worth getting a driver to come up to this UNESCO site. I can walk quite long distances but would recommend getting a bike onsite or otherwise using a shuttle to get around the area. Certainly recommend this place!
  • May be a bit out of the way but its still reachable. More ancient khmer architecture than thai.. Less polish than its cousin sukhothai park but definitely have a more ancient feel..
  • Very nice park with few tourists and well maintained ruins. Also there was a large colony of crane like birds in the South West part off the park
  • A must see together with Sukhothai and Kampaen Phet historical park. Don't forget to visit Wat phra si rattana mahatat which is 3km away from the park.
