Explore Thailand's ancient history at Sukhothai Historical Park, the capital of the first Kingdom of Siam and now a World Heritage Site. With well-preserved palace buildings, impressive Buddha figures, and evocative ruined temples, the park represents one of the major places to visit in Thailand. The large town's layout and structures, along with the nature that surrounds, make this an extremely photogenic place, as well as a historically rich one. Note that the attraction gets crowded at peak hours; you can zoom past the masses on a rented bicycle.

  • It was thrilling to walk among these beautifully situated ruins. The park is extremely well managed and cared for, and creates a memorable trip into SE Asia history. 
  • Must see. Main reason to go to sukhothai at all. Just great! There is a bicycle rental for very little money which makes exploring the whole Park a lot more feasable.
  • I have visited many places in Thailand, most of them are just ordinary, for me, for example, Ayutthaya. But then, I visited Sukhothai, I felt regretful. I regret that I should have visited earlier and more times. Must.
  • Better than Ayutthaya and less visited. Suggest you have your own transportation, but bikes are available to rent. There are a lot of snakes around, so be aware of your surroundings.
  • This was our third visit to Old Sukothai and we still ove it a lot. I'm not into new age, but this is one of the places on earth where some underground good-vibe stream must cross. The place is peacefull and restfull and it's great to cycle around between the ruins for a half or full day. Make sure you get a reasonable bike, as the stuff that's rented out around the park is mostly rubbish
  • Ruins of the Sukhothai imperial capital city. Dozens of 'wat' or Buddhist temples, and this place is testament to their notion of continuous change. 100b entry + 10b bicycle. Would be nice if the govt & UNESCO could chip in for some interpretive boards - maybe in another 800 years
