Explore Thailand's ancient history at Sukhothai Historical Park, the capital of the first Kingdom of Siam and now a World Heritage Site. With well-preserved palace buildings, impressive Buddha figures, and evocative ruined temples, the park represents one of the major places to visit in Thailand. The large town's layout and structures, along with the nature that surrounds, make this an extremely photogenic place, as well as a historically rich one. Note that the attraction gets crowded at peak hours; you can zoom past the masses on a rented bicycle.

  • I went on the day of the Sukhothai Marathon for free admission! The park is beautiful and well groomed. It was especially beautiful in the morning (6am) because candles were strategically placed on the ruins. Riding bicycle around the park is a good time, and there are bike rental shops around the park (B60/day). There are lots of trees and small water bodies that make for a cool and relaxing atmosphere. Old Sukhothai is quiet, beautiful, and enjoyable. A very underrated tourist destination.
  • It was peaceful. I was lucky cos when I arrived it was raining hard and I went by a bike after the rain stopped. The atmosphere after the rain is perfect for biking! This is a very big and well-maintained historical site but just it's a bit expensive especially if you want to go to all sites.
  • I was there one year ago and it was very nice to see this old temples staying there around. The best way to explore the park is the rent a bike and take a long ride! There are many temples as well outside from the park. Enjoy!
  • Beautiful place! Worth the price of admission. It is big so rent a bike or a modified golf cart model T. Again... the golf cart is worth what they charge though 1 hour rental might not be enough! Splurge for 2 hours!
  • We did the whole loop by bike and can clearly recommend it. Of course you can't compare with Angkor Wat, but it's far far far more relaxing and gives interesting and different insights. We enjoyed it a lot, also the very nice setting right in the nature.
