This place was very cool. The weather was nice, we rented bicycles across the street and rode through the ruins. This was a lot of fun. We took many photos.

This is an amazing park. So much to see and learn. There are many well reconditioned . Hopefully, you will have a guide. If not, read on line first to get better appreciation. Take your time strolling around. Many great photo opportunities. Look for wonderful reflections in the moats.

Don't miss this wonderful historical park. It holds huge Thai history and some great Thai art from 13th century. If you don't have a guide go to the museum first to get some background on the park before you go in. Hire bicycles outside on the main road as the park is quite big. At the moment the park and...

We spent about 6 hrs at the park. Some rode bikes which was easy to do even if not so fit. Some of us walked. The place is very clean and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Toilets, food and water are readily available, Again everything clean but remember your toilet tissue! Also remember to respect these national treasures

Easily walked through grassy areas with numerous ponds and monuments. Allow half a day to enjoy this serene location.

Covers a large area with both the Watt and the old palace most of which are in ruins but a good guide is very useful. The original site has been recreated in a very good model

Sukhothai Historical Park is very spread out, and one is well advised to rent a bicycle to get between each site. The park contains a considerable variety of temples in various states of condition, and there value to see. However, one ticket (is supposed) to allow you to visit them all (or as many as you can see in a... More
