A must see if you are close to the area. Worth getting a bike to see the whole thing. There is food and drink in the area, so don’t worry about finding food come lunch/dinner time.

I crabbed a bike with my friends to visit some temples for a half day cycling tour, it was good to learn about Sukhothai and its temples and have some fun.

Beautiful park, with historic sites. Would strongly recommend to tour it by bicycle, park is too big to do it by foot. Bicycles can be rented quite cheaply at several shops close to the main entrance.

Well maintained treasure of the world and certainly a pleasing place to spend some time. I think if I were to do it again, I’d skip renting the rickety, old bicycle and spend more time walking around the park and soaking it all in.

Sukhotai used to be the capital of Siam 800 years ago. This is the place where it was located. Many important historical events happened here. The place itself is so huge that we cannot walk. There are trams provided with an extra charge, and it...More
