Learning the history and being able to walk around and observe it can be relaxing and breath taking for comparisons. It is enjoyable, educational and fact finding. It allows you to tie in the ancient history to modern times and the vast changes.

A must see if you are close to the area. Worth getting a bike to see the whole thing. There is food and drink in the area, so don’t worry about finding food come lunch/dinner time.

I crabbed a bike with my friends to visit some temples for a half day cycling tour, it was good to learn about Sukhothai and its temples and have some fun.

Beautiful park, with historic sites. Would strongly recommend to tour it by bicycle, park is too big to do it by foot. Bicycles can be rented quite cheaply at several shops close to the main entrance.

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....
