This beautifully kept Historical Park is some way from Sukhothai itself, but well worth a visit. It is deceptively large and you need to rent a bicycle to do justice to the number of temples and monuments that seem to get better as you go...More

Well maintained park with nice green and impressive sites. Not to big, but not small. You can visit by foot, hop in- hop off bus, electric car, bicycle or tuktuk with driver.

We spent 5 days in Sukhothai and went here for one of them. The place is amazing. Truly as good as, if not better than Sukhothai. Though it is different - much more lush and quiet. It's an amazing place. A great feel about it....More

Only a few tourists who visit Sukhothai will go to the nearby historic town of Si Satchanalai. They do not regret it. Satchanalai is a wonderful place. A number of historical monuments from the 13th to the 16th century will enchant every visitor. Besides, the...More

Amazing visit in Si Satchanalai Historical Park Really appreciated the quietness and the no-car visit. Riding a bike is really the best way to explore this. The area is very well maintained.

hire a scooter, grab a map and ride there, it's only about 50 kms away,...or chat to a local thai at the old city and work out a deal. The park is worth the visit
