    All places change, so my review may not be that helpful now, as I visited in 2000. The park was still off the beaten track, and I had a luxurious 4 hours exploring the ruins, with very few visitors. I...  more »

    If you visit Sukhothai historical national park, you should visit here as well. You can rent a bicycle only 20 Baht and riding around the park. There are a lot of ruin temples. **There is no public transportation traveling from the city to the park**

    Beautiful historical park. Best explore by bike given its scale and expansive ground. Like Sukhothai historical park, this place is kept clean with well paved road. Information provide at site and through qr code. Temples in here are grand and well preserved. An hour from Sukhothai center but absolutely worth the visit.

    Recomended for all tourists visitng Sukothai to visit this place with various beautiful and valuable historical temples. The place is also surrounded by trees providing nice atmosphere. The entrance fee for foreigners are THB 100 and THB 20 for Thais. You can also rent the bicycle at THB 20 for normal bikes and THB 80 for tendem. You can walk around the places by yourself or take the provided shuttle service to travel around the areas too. Don't forget to prepare some drinks while travelling inside the park.

    4 temples in a row, 800m distance walking... suggesting to rent the bike or using your shuttle (extra fee) to avoid hot sun...

Where to stay in Sukhothai

Sukhothai tourism has been growing for decades, meaning you can now find many places to stay around town, even on a budget. Most accommodations are in New Sukhothai, which lies 12 km (7.45 mi) from the historical park, but lacks many interesting sights of its own. However, good transport connections between the two cities make it easy to explore the historical city on a day trip. If you have a bit more in your budget, save yourself some traveling time by staying near the old city. Do your homework before you book, though--some of the older hotels have a reputation for being run-down and not particularly clean.
