If you want to discover more about ancient Thailand Sukhothai is a must. We got the bus here from Chaing Mai . ( about a 5 hour trip)

Sukhothai is all about the park and what a park it is . It reminded me a little of the ancient city of Rome . The ruins are truly amazing . I could really imagine what life must have been in the 13th century. I was surprised to see we could climb right up to them . Nothing is barred off. I guess I'm used to western ways.

It's a trip solely for the history...not much to write about as far as the town goes.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the ruins , history ,mystical
  • Cons:Not for the non history buffs
  • In a nutshell:Fabulous ruins in a huge open park like setting

    Hi Anita, Certainly a historic site, the old city but enough left of it to easily picture it all those centuries ago. Our group had 6 mini buses for the week, we moved from site to site in airconditioned comfort.

    Nice tips.The town of Phitsanalouk about 30 minutes by bus is a better option to stay .Its also got a bit to see.
