This park was stunning. It was relatively small but I’d still recommend cycling round. We hired bikes for 30bhat each which is so cheap. We spent the day cycling around and going to all the temple ruins. It was very interesting and we enjoyed it...More

Sukhothai Historical Park will be worth your time. Amazing place. We rented bikes from our hotel. Biking around the park was fun experience. Next day we rented moped to explore the old Sukhothai city. We loved it!

Far better than Ayutthaya Historical Park, almost as good as the Khmer ruins on the road to Angkor in lower Isan, not as amazing as Bagan or Angkor but well worth the visit. Although somewhat of a “secondary itinerary destination”, Sukhothai Historical Park is not...More

Sukhothai Historical Park is an amazing place in Thailand. I really recommend because it's not as touristic as Ayutthaya. Bring a lot of water because in the open field it can get REALLY HOT. In one of the entries there's a lot of restaurants with...More

Lots of amazing ruins, well maintained and easy to access; would be a highlight of any visit to Thailand. Allow at least 4 hours to see it in some detail and at a relaxed pace. Even better with a bicycle. Not crowded when we were...More

We took a day trip from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai and one of the other sites with a private driver - it was so worth it. Pressed for time and only visiting Chiang Mai and Phuket we decided to approach it from the north. We...More

Surprisingly no tourists even though it has to be the best thing in the area. Hire bikes from the place outside. 110 bhat to get in with hired bikes. Would recommend but nowhere to eat inside. Plenty of restaurants just outside.

Not in the park itself. There are hostels near by that may be able to accommodate you

I am well beyond those years, so I don't know but I expect the kids will love the tuck-tucks. They are cheap and can get you anywhere in Sukhothai....

If you are staying at a local hotel they can also help arrange and recommend based on your needs. Park is big so wouldn’t recommend walking if you want to see as much as possible in a few hours (plus it’s hot)
