The ruins of the ancient city/ temples were absolutely awe inspiring. It is unimaginable how these buildings were constructed in ancient times. It was very peaceful strolling about the ruins, but there were all sorts of guided tours, welding , bicycle and motor available.

We visited the three sites in the old Sukothai historical park. We loved all of them and would recommend everybody else so visit this place. We rented a bike to get around (30 bath for one day) because it's too far to walk everything. You pay 100 bath per person and 10 bath for the bike

Walking around the old city is fantastic, however you can go around in Tuk Tuks or hit bikes. There are guided tours available. There are dozens of ruined temples, statues of Budda and canals dating back over 1500 years. Very good accomadtion near by with restaurants to cater for all tastes and budgets

My only complaint is that I didn't have enough time to enjoy! My husband and I only had a short time so we hired a private driver for the day to bring us from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai. Beautiful ruins, wonderful sights to see. Rent a bike and enjoy riding around the park!

This historical park is breathtaking. Is large enought, so you should rent a bike :) If you are not sure whether visit Sukhothai, so definitely YES!

This will be most useful for the independent car traveller. We started from Phitsanulok about 8:15. Arrived Sukhotai Historical Park (SHP) about 9:30 and the National Museum (NM-Central Zone) by GPS. Started there for a site display and artifacts including a history of Budda poses (2nd floor). Not pressed for time we listened to a ceramic making media presentation (2nd... More

The park is over 700 years old and is in old sukhothai city. You can hire bicycles and mopeds to get around or just walk. The park is lovely and peaceful to walk around or just sit and admire.
