"West side" Sukhothai Things to Do Tip by Mr.Sparkle

Sukhothai Things to Do: 121 reviews and 303 photos

I found The West Zone to more rewarding than the East Zone, but for the simple fact of variety. The hill top temple of Wat Saphan Hin should be on your list of things to do. It’s an easy hike up for starters, only 200m, it has a decent view (not spectacular though) and most importantly there is an impressive free standing Buddha on top, which would be the main reason for going.

The down side is that it’s a little far from the Central Zone. Count on a 20 to 30 minute bike ride over flat, paved terrain.

After seeing Wat Saphan Hin, continue down the road from more ruins, scattered on both sides of the road. They are all in disrepair, so they give an alternate view to what you’ve already seen in the Central and North Zones.

Entry price is 30 Bath to see the whole West Zone.

Expect to spend about 2 to 2 and half hours to see the West Zone.
