Sukhothai Historical Park, Sukhothai
(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your Sukhothai Historical Park visit and explore what else you can see and do in Sukhothai using our Sukhothai vacation route planner.

  • In the garden. Get a map at the entrance. Pricing is dirty trip in the Park tram. Let's ride. I was taken in enough 2 300 baht in 20 minutes. Group of six came after about 50 baht per person. Without losing Word tools, but, in vain. Tek talk chartered by bike so hard on the foot.

  • We stayed at Sukhothai on our way to Chiang mai and this park did not disappoint us. It was an amazing experience. Until 31st dec, there is free entry and in the evening they have sound and light show...  more »
  • Will write more for those who will stop as I am here for a few days. Of course I recommend you stop in the historic part of town if you have a few days to Sukhothai architechture mixing. The best time to see the Park and did not die from the heat, even in mid-December it with 8-11 am and after 5:00 pm be sure to come back to watch the sunset. Wander back here from new Sukhothai architechture mixing, I do not know whether it is convenient. By the way the price of two roads in their cars for tourists from new town to the old worth 60 baht. Very handy with am view Park and ride out the heat in the room. Highly recommend the hotel next to the Old City Park Guest House. Price from 200 shared facilities and over 1000. A large choice of rooms. I lived in the room for 400, with a fan with a shower. But if you're here during the winter season and the fan does not need, at night with the Windows Open froze. Wonderful local market and close, cross the bridge, the Temple of Buddha's foot and feed the catfish that already can't even budge from excess weight. I have all three days continuously in the morning and in the evening was in the Park took place in the northern part of the foot, it's not really intense, I unfortunately don't know how to ride a bike. The most amazing Temple Si Chum, what is called the great. Milking me. In the main Central Park with 18 to 9:00 pm with 3 December to 3 January in honor of 25 anniversary of the Park ad national heritage of humanity UNESCO lit candles and colored lights with incredibly beautiful music. This beauty is incredibly heavily influences, it seems that it is simply unrealistic. Little people. Here are those who live in a new city and have a problem come in the evening in the old town is a fantastic spectacle, even do not know what they can arrive. The latest machines in the new city are leaving after five in the evening. The Park has many not wrote about it and so much written standard elation. Park need to examine very carefully and morning and evening and night slowly, slowly wander by his nooks, sit on the ancient stones, look at Lotus, and they are disclosed at 6 a.m. and closes in 12 days, the canals and the stay in old Sukhothai weather for a couple of days and you will not regret, as did not upset me.

  • Sukhothai historical park is wonderful historical park at Thailand you must see it it have many historical temples inside it you can walk or by bicycle also don't worry about food cause there are coffee shope there... be careful if you have kids cause there maybe fall down in water or any place ( there also many wells open )....i hope you will love it .
  • Excellent history place to see and be. How the construction are similar to contraction in Rome. Rock that use are the same, but the bricks are new to local building. Buddha is beautiful. I can enjoy the park, without noise Chinese Tourists. Castle construction is similar to castle construction of castle in England or Scotland. Nakorn Wat is seem to use larger rock.
  • Fantastic place, been lots of times and still finding new things to see. Didn't get 5* due to price discrimination. Recently developing new commercial areas, I don't know if that is good or bad.
  • This historical park is a part of World Heritage site about Sukhothai culture, ancient culture appeared in the lower North of Thailand during 13th A.D. The park devided to 3 zone, separately pay for entrance fee, center zone, north zone, west zone. The park opened 6.00 am. - 7.30 pm. everyday, only Saturday +light up until 9.00 pm.
  • Beautiful place on earth. More interesting than ayutthaya. It is a huge area, you have a good chance to be alone. Bicycles are allowed inside the park. But if you have time and not enough money for a bicycle, the most attractions are in walking distance.
