Very nice Parc to cycle for some hours, but it's better to go together with a guide.
And the best way is to cycle because then it's evasief to cycle around the whole parc.
Enjoy....

Visited this park on my own about 16 years ago and enjoyed it. This trip I had the pleasure of showing it to my wife and kids. We all enjoyed it.

We hired bikes – 50 baht each I think, something ridiculously low – and zipped along the park paths…kids loved it more than the ruins and kept doing laps. There was hardly anybody there.

I’ve been to a lot of the old ruin sites in Thailand and this is one of the best and hardly anyone seems to know it. DO NOT MISS IT.

Of the old ruins sites locally, I’d rate them in this order of worth visiting:

1. Si Satchanalai Historical Park
2. Kamphangphet Historical Park
3. Sukhothai Historical Park

No one else here on a Thai bank holiday weekend so if this is the busy season.... Lots to see, in great parkland like surroundings. I personally didn't rate the kilns but all the other main sites were worth it. Climb the hill for 2 temples but also great birdwatching - flocks of them (I don't know what they were)

I drove from Sukhothai , the road is very busy in the mornings and it takes a good 45 minutes to get there by car. It was impressive and I spent a couple of hours there before moving on to Lampang.

Si Satchalanai Historical Park is quite different to Sukhothai Historical Park - you really feel like you're in the country. You need a bike to get around unless you take one of the little open buses which give tours with a very loud commentary in Thai - kind of spoils the mood! There was hardly anyone there when we visited. There are not many intact Buddha statues with the exception of at Wat Phra Si Rattanamahatath Chaliang where there are a number of impressive Buddha figures. There are a couple of wats on a hill which you have to climb up a fair number of steps to get to - you get a good overview of the surrounding countryside. There is an intact Buddha statue at one of them, Wat Khao Phanom Phloeng. Don't miss Wat Changlom which is surrounded by a terrace of (fairly worn) elephants. Very worthwhile visit if you're into historic momuments.
