65 km from Sukhothai, the park has less well preserved temples. Most of them are reduced to a few elements but it is still a very pleasant place to stroll in the forest by bicycle discovering the traces of its past. UNESCO World Heritage like its famous neighbors, the Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai parks, it includes temples from the same period and is divided into two parts. One that next to the city, often called Old Town which contains the Wat Phra Kaew remarkable for its superb three Buddha statues. Two sitting Buddha and one reclyning in front of them. The other part, in the forest, is the Arunyik Area. A few kilometers further, it is ideal for bicycle tours (rentals available at the entrance). It contains numerous of tempels remains. The most interesting ones are Wat Ariyabot and its standing Buddha, Wat Singh and Wat Chang Rop whose chedi is supported by elephants statues. It takes at least 2h30 to visit the entire park.
Girls working at the Information Centre (in Aranyik Area) will be delighted to advice you about the park and the entire region rarely mentionned in guidebooks but full of surprises. The Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park worth a visit and town with its very few tourists also. For its hospitality and tranquility. A visit to couple with Sukhothai vsit. The park here is wilder, more in the nature. A real heartstroke for us especially thanks to Wat Phra Kaew Buddhas. If we have to choose between Si Satchanalai and Kamphaeng Phet, we will choose Kamphaeng Phet. Those who love history, nature and "old stones" will visit the three places happily.
