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.

  • 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.
