Great! Unless you've been to Angor Wat (SECRET ENTRANCE!)

If you have never been to Angor Wat....then this place will be awesome! Historical ruins of temples (not like all the other Thai temples which are all relatively the same) spread... read more

If you have never been to Angor Wat....then this place will be awesome! Historical ruins of temples (not like all the other Thai temples which are all relatively the same) spread over an entire city. I would suggest a motorbike, as the main UNESCO site is very large! I went in early March and was literally the only person in... More

A really nice walk that i highly recommend. Cost 100 bath but you can go up on the monuments or just relax in the grass :) easy to find and when i was there they had a market just next to it :)

Not for young children as they are not interested at history. Be adventurous for sightseeing and photography. Be prepared for hot sun or rain as it is open field activity. Feel like Indiana Jones. Enjoy but please be mindful at the sacred site. 😀

This is a fantastic park, where they allow you to cycle around. There are some wonderful statues of the Buddha. Well recommended. On a down side I cannot understand why the Thai government want foreigners to pay separately into the three sites

We were there on weekdays at 9-ish am. so we were the only people there. I wouldn't imagine this park being as famous as Sukhothai Historical Park. If you are introvert, like to contemplate and not passing through Sukhothai, this is a good substitute. They got the swaying Buddha as well though not as beautiful and intact as Sukhothai's.

This historical park is a must see not only for the once thriving city that was there but because you will practically have the park to yourself! It reminded me a little of Gettysburg and how you can drive through and stop at monuments so if you’re mobility challenged this is a great opportunity to see some fantastic ruins without... More

This compact historical park has a nice mix of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya-style buildings in various states of decay and renovation. The area and buildings amidst huge trees are freely accessible for admiration and some serious photography. Definitely recommended.

We stopped at Kamphaeng Phet on the way from Bankok to Sukhothai and wondered around this tranquil UNESCO World Heritage listed historical park which is well worth a visit for history buffs.
