This is a must do for any visitor in Thailand. You simply can't visit Thailand and not see these ancient wonders.

This is what you came for. A whole park full of the history of the first city of Thailand You need several hours here to really enjoy it and preferable with a Thai historian and not just any guide

We rented bicycles and spent hours cycling around the park. Serene, beautiful, clean and simply amazing. The ruins are awe inspiring. We walked and cycled among them amazed at the history.

Very well maintained park which encompasses many temple ruins from 700-800 years ago. Lots of shade as you visit ruins, toilets are at reasonable intervals. Didn’t see a lot of places to eat in the park ( did see an ice cream vendor).

We’ve spent half a day at the park and seen everything (by bicycle). It’s not too crowded so that you can take some nice pictures and enjoy the landscape and temples without too much noise/traffic. It is beautiful. We recommend the sunset at 5/5:30 pm.

Visit the park by bike, and if you can try and stay until the sunset.. it's worth it! It's probably a bit less enjoyable to walk around in the full heat of the day(and lotus flowers in the ponds were open in the mornings only),...More
