    Interesting group of ruins. Has one Khmer tower still erect, worth seeing it. When here, make sure to visit Wat si chum, where there's a huge and amazing sitting Buddha. Also visit the new Wat Phra Pa...  more »

    Imagine and wonder if they rot or most of one of the oldest temples, what happened here I saw. You could feel the history, too, or half of the Buddha.

    I went in Japan-language guided private tours from Chiang Mai. Thanks to the variety and description and visited here: watsyrtum. Although it is the oldest temple in Sukhothai where restoration parts done, of compared to other famous mostly turned to rubble. But I feels most open way to feel what partial replica was restored, or rather than thoroughly destroyed beauty is there. I guess when I visit the following reverts are now rubble. I think it is good that it is, but keep watching at this time was.

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.
