  • Sukhothai is surrounded by temples and parkland with Lakes, to travel around is better to rent a bike. In our case we rent it at the hotel by little 50thb if I remember correctly.

  • Pretty close to main entrance, this temple consist of one big chedi on a platform and some few pillars. Not too much to see or spend too much time, unless for transcendental reasons.  more »

  • The Wat Sa Si temple is located on a small island in the middle of the lotus flowers pond, it is one of the most attractive monuments of the Sukhothai Historical Park. Build towards the end of the 14thcentury. The small temple consists of a principal chedi, another smaller chedi, a viharn, an ubosot and a Sukhothai style walking Buddha image. The main chedi, a well preserved bell shaped chedi in Singhalese style is set on a square base. In front of the main chedi is the viharn or assembly hall, of which the base and rows of pillars remain. Seated on a pedestal to the back of the viharn is a large stuccoed stone image of the Buddha in the Bhumisparsha mudra, also known as “calling the Earth to witness” or “subduing Mara”.
  • Magnificent temple situated on a partial island enclave surrounded by water. The main Buddha image in front of the temple have its perfectly fit the beauty.

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.
