Sukhothai Historical Park, Sukhothai

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
National Park
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.

  • From Bangkok went in one morning. Visit 12-year Buri, airport and the streets are almost unchanged, remain in the country. But so far, far away from the airport we Charter a taxi one day, go to the non-Historical Park, historic park was no use for sightseeing on foot. Well preserved ruins, are worth a visit. In the Thailand veterans no longer going is recommended.

  • Really interesting, we can't go to Sukhothai without stopping. Get there early to avoid the crowds and be able to quietly contemplate.

  • Beautiful park to do bike to walk between the temples and water bodies. Some temples are in ruins, others are worth a visit on foot. It's very hot, close to 40 degrees celsius. A good half day is sufficient, but there are other parks autour. For each it is 200 bht per person. In front of the entrance, 2 rental bicycles, some with door-children, count €3 day, and less for several days. The Park was deserted late March.

  • 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.
