A trip back centuries. That was what the visit was about. My husband and I spent the long weekend in Sukhothai and drove down for an hour and fifteen minutes to this historical park. The road from Sukhothai is very picturesque. The park has a guided tour in a quaint tram. Tickets were for 60 baht. And we also paid the entry tickets. The team driver was a very gentle Thai and clearly spoke very well about the various sites and places of interest. However it was in Thai and we couldn't follow what was said. What we did was refer to the tour pamplet and also the descriptions mounted outside the sites.

We marvelled at how well maintained the park was. The river Yom flows gently by. The ruins have been protected well.

Once the rise was over, we used the facilities for a snack and drink. Again, well maintained and organised. Loved the trip.

These ruins are neat to see. It’s very different from Sukhothai as they are not restored. They have a trolley so you can ride around the site if you don’t want to walk it. It is a fun stop and it’s nice to see more of Thailands history.

The park is quite far from the town, is large, is like a forest, is well maintained and quiet, but not much in terms of historical ruins, especially if you've already visited the amazing Sukhotai Historical Park.

No people here due to COVID so we had the park to ourselves. It was very well kept - we saw workers regularly cleaning and weeding. We rented bikes for 30 baht and then there was a 10 baht fee to bring them into the park on top of the entrance fee. All very reasonable. We rode around for about 2 hours.

We had coffee at Thaitone which is a great coffee shop about 10 minutes away by car. Highly recommend.

We went to Sukhothai Historical Park the day before and both were just stunning. So fortunate to be able to ride bicycles around these beautiful ruins with hardly any other tourists. Our photos are postcard perfect. Terrible for the Thai economy but wonderful for us. People were lovely to us too. Do note that the ruins that are outside of the main square way off to the side are a distance away. Recommend doing those by car unless you plan to spend the day there in which case enjoy the bike ride.

After the main Sukhothai Historical Park, this is another great place. Again, this is big or bigger in size than thr Sukhothai park, awesome forest cover with extremely well organised every point. even cycles are available for a small charge.

one has to spend few hours to enjoy this amazing history brought on a beautiful platter of maintenance for all

I found this place very wondrous and better than Sukhothai. It is much more remote than Sukhothai and super green and rural. The remoteness and rural-ness I think is what makes this place such a gem. There were very few people here when we visited, and I only saw two other foreigners.

Speaking of which, this place unfortunately charges based on skin color. If you are white, black or any race non-Asian, you will be charged a price 5x higher. So I'm sad to say, I give this place 2 stars off because of that.

While this place is spectacular and easily in my top 10 places I've visited in Thailand (I've traveled all over and been here for 7 years), I'm not sure if I'd say it is worth a visit alone. However, if you do make it to Sukhothai, definitely make the extra trip to come out here.

Double prices for the entrance fee. Thai people pay 20 Baht, tourists pay 100 Baht, which is 5 times more ...

After seeing the Sukhothai Historical Park, our guide recommended we visit Si Satchanali and it was an excellent suggestion. The ruins here have more 'original' construction and materials. The signage is very good and it is easy to get around, again I preferred the tuk tuk to walking, especially in the heat.

Si Satchanalai has always been my favourite Thai ruins since I was young. It is not overly manicured like Sukhothai and has a natural feel to it, and has a lot less tourists. A pity (or perhaps good) that there is no decent hotel here.
