Sukhothai Historical Park is a big and quiet park with 193 ruins comprising the ruins of royal palaces, Buddhist temples, the city gates, walls, moats, and the water dyke control system of ancient Sukhothai. Well worth a visit.

This wonderful, spread out park with huge Buddhas, moats filled with waterlilies, ancient, venerable trees, is well-maintained and truly awe-inspiring. An early morning bike ride when the park has just opened is highly recommended as it gets very hot during the day. However you can...More

I found this place better restored than Ayutthaya and the complex is much smaller, so it’s easier to get around and see most of the park in one day. Take a bike, it’s so much more enjoyable, because of the breeze. Even in the early...More

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)
