What to see in Sukhothai

Sukhothai is THE number one destination for who wants to visit and discover Thailand history. Its Historical Park consists of remains of temples that are the pride of the thai Kingdom. We especially liked Wat Si Chum and its gigantic sitting Buddha.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Sukhothai or from Sukhothai. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Sukhothai

Sukhothai Historical Park Sukhothai

Sukhothai Historical Park

อุทยานประวัติศาสตร์สุโขทัย
My opinion :
is one of the prides of the country. By feet or by bicycle (rentals at the entrance), you will discover the remains of the past of this city that dominated the thai kingdom for nearly two centuries. Decks, altars, bas-reliefs, chedis, columns and above all the great stone Buddhas, it is like a living postcard. Most temples are grouped in the park but one of them are a little outside. Wat Chum for instance that includes a massive sitting Buddha is highly recommended.
Si Satchanalai Historical Park Sukhothai

Si Satchanalai Historical Park

อุทยานประวัติศาสตร์ศรีสัชนาลัย
My opinion :
About sixty kilometers from Sukothai, in a little less designed nature, it houses the ruins of the same kind that the one in Sukhothai but less numerous.
Wat Si Chum Sukhothai

Wat Si Chum

วัดศรีชุม
My opinion :
and its huge stone sitting Buddha. This temple is not in the center of Sukhothai Historical Park and is therefore sometimes overlooked by visitors and they really miss something!
