A bit far and expensive the monument are a bit far apart and fewer that it's counter part in the next town . To many tourists and to little roads. But it is interesting and also a must see however it is a cold to cool weather place to visit. Not for hot days. However if you have no option.... More

The park was beautiful! All of the sites are well preserved however lacking information. If we were to go again I would definitely want to get a tour guide to explain the history behind it. Visiting the museum helps however it is still very hard to get a full picture of what the sight might have looked liked. Hiring a... More

The park is a must visit, liked a lot more than Ayutthaya. But try to stay in the shade as much as possible because it can get quite hot. Use bicycles to visit since it is flat, and you can cover a larger area.

My sister & I had the luck to be visiting Thailand during Loy Kathrong. I'm sure this park is magical all on its own but getting to experience it during this festival was something really special. Tons of vendors selling hand-crafted kathrongs (water lanterns) and street food stalls. In years past, there have been parades and fireworks as well however... More

A must see if you stay in Sukhothai. Similar to Ayutthaia but this is located in a park and not in the middle of the traffic. Ralxing cycling outside the city wall.

We happened to be on our way to Chiang Mai, and spent the night in Sukhothai having a relaxing stop over. We visited this historic park early in the morning to avoid the tourist buses, and we found it quite relaxing and soothing. It was easy enough to wawslk around the whol eplace without a bicycle or a tuk-tuk.

We engaged a tuck tuck driver who took us all around the park, to some outlying ruins, and waited while we had lunch in town. An excellent value which really allowed us to enjoy the day!

Very cheap bikes in front of the ruins. You will love it!!!! Don't forget to bring water and a cap to cover you from the sun! We went in mid October and there was nobody there, very relaxed and they ask you to pay fees if you want to visit different parts of the park but there are ways to... More

It's a lovely place to explore by bike. The old ruins are really beautiful. There is lots of green and ponds with water lily's everywhere. It's idyllic. And not to many tourists find this place. It's not crowded, really relaxing. Right now it's free because of the death of the king. You do have to pay 10 baht if you... More

This place cannot be seen to be appreciated in a day. I think you would need 3 or 4 days just to visit this park and the surrounding temples.
