The world heritage is about 70 sq.km and has more than 200 historical remains spread out around 3 layers of the city-walls and the old city communities (not only inside inner zone of Sukhothai Historical Park). This is the hottest province in Thailand, some years...More

This site is incredible! So many temples to see, and yet each of them unique in itself. You cannot get bored! Visiting this place by motorbike is the best way to do it. Do not miss the Sunset!!

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...More

The best way to visit it is to rent a bike in one of the shops that are very close to its entrance and cycle all around it. One of the most beautiful places I know.

These are some of the most beautiful city ruins I have had the pleasure to visit. Entry is cheap, and you get a free map. I would recommend hiring a bicycle as walking around on a hot day could become unpleasant. There are a few...More

Sukhothai Historical Park is a big and quiet park with 193 ruins comprising the ruins of royal palaces, Buddhist temples, the city gates, walls, moats, and the water dyke control system of ancient Sukhothai. Well worth a visit.

This wonderful, spread out park with huge Buddhas, moats filled with waterlilies, ancient, venerable trees, is well-maintained and truly awe-inspiring. An early morning bike ride when the park has just opened is highly recommended as it gets very hot during the day. However you can...More

Not in the park itself. There are hostels near by that may be able to accommodate you

I am well beyond those years, so I don't know but I expect the kids will love the tuck-tucks. They are cheap and can get you anywhere in Sukhothai....

If you are staying at a local hotel they can also help arrange and recommend based on your needs. Park is big so wouldn’t recommend walking if you want to see as much as possible in a few hours (plus it’s hot)
