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.

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

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)
