  • At the southern end of the Sukhothai Historical Park. Highlights include 3 towers standing side by side, I think. The play was at the southern end, many tourists have not felt that local people a peaceful resting place making the flag of some locals, like Grand Golf.

  • Wat Si Sawai is easily spotted by the big three Khmer-style prang, shaped like corn on the cob. It is one of the oldest temples of Sukhothai Historical Park and was 30 lám before the Foundation of the Sukhothai Kingdom. It was originally a Hindu shrine dedicated to the Trinity Brahma, Shiva's vehicle. There are many references to Hindu religion, survived the conversion back to Buddhist temple.

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.
