  • It was a very unique-shaped Temple Wat Sri Sawai. Wat Sri Sawai is built as a temple of the Hindu religion (Hinduism) by the Khmer (Khmer). Then the building was restored and became a Buddhist temples of Thailand's current history seems to be. The temple was very unique. Do you take it a look at the visit?

  • Hope those who have not visited this place, after seeing the photos shall make an effort to come. Really worth the time.
  • Wat Si Sawai is one of the oldest temples in Sukhothai. It's origin dates back to the XII century, by the Khmer as a Hindu sanctuary dedicated to Shiva. Later on during the Sukhothai period, the Wat Si Sawai was converted into a Buddhist temple and two viharns were added.
  • It's included in the main area, so with the 100 baht entrance already paid you must visit! Beautifully preserved temple in Angkor style, with great sculptures and surrounding grounds. Definitely one of the most beautiful in Sukhothai
  • Worth the visit. Bicycle renting recommended
  • Structure was in good condition. Quite good architecture and design.

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.
