UNESCO declared it a world heritage site. This says it all. Plenty of wats, ruins and Buddhas. Leave aside a full day to visit, not more and not less. Open until 19:30. Total entrance fee is 300 baht if all three zones are visited.

I arrived here around midday which probably wasn't the best choice as it was very hot and there were some large tour groups. However overall the place was quite quiet and I spent hours marvelling in the beauty of these ruins. I also rode around...More

A really beautiful area with some well preserved ruins of historic towns close together. You have to pay to enter each of the 4 sections separately which costs around £2 each. It is slightly more to enter with a bicycle but worth it, especially if...More

We visited in late May, so it was still pretty warm, although there had been heavy rain and much of surrounding Sukhothai was flooded. The park had remained largely dry as it is on a elevated plateau...however, it is dead flat...so even if you don't...More

The place is nice and you go there by truck just for 30 baths and rent a bike there. I visit Ayuttaya and the sukhothai but in my opinion was too much effort. First I took a night train from ayuttaya to phisalunok (or whatever...More

This is a truly must see. Absolutely stunning. I wish the museum was a little more informative though. We hired bikes and cycled through the Central and North part all day.

We visited sukothai not knowing what to expect. My boyfriend and I were amazed at how beautiful the historical park was. We visited just before sunset and this was a good time to go as it was cooler and not very busy. Bikes are available...More

We spent 6 hrs at the site, taking a bicycle tour-the perfect way to see this exception site. The park is pristine and well maintained.

The Sukhothai historical park is smaller if compared to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. The temples are easier to build than the temples in Angkor Wat which were built by many big rocks and beautifully carved. Nonetheless, it is worthwhile to pay a visit to...More

Is it possible to hire a bike at the park for getting around inside? I'm staying far enough away to take a tuk-tuk rather than hire a hotel bike, but want to go round the park by bike.
