Sukhothai Historical Park in Sukhothai

Sukhothai Historical Park

Sukhothai Historical Park is the main attraction in Sukothai Province. Located 12 kilometers from Sukothai town on the Sukhothai-Tak Highway, the Historical Park is a place of ruins and temples although certainly part of Thailand's heritage, it also regarded as a World Heritage site under the auspices of UNESCO and the Thai Fine Arts Department. The capital of Thailand's first Kingdom (founded in 1238), Sukothai has considerable historical significance and is a pleasure to visit. There the original city was surrounded by walls with 4 city gates.

Sukhothai Historical Park ranks alongside Wat Phra Kaew as one of Thailand's premier places to visit. As such, if you plan to visit the area, this is one place you 'must see'.

Details: The site is open daily from 08.30 a.m. to 04.30 p.m. It is separated into five zones (north, south, east, west and central) and admission to each is 30 Baht, with the exception of the central zone where the admission fee is 40 Baht. Probably the easiest way to move around the zones is by rented bicycle which are available from the park at 20 Baht a day. However, a tram also moves from site to site and costs on 20 Baht per person.

Address: Sukhothai Historical Park Amphoe Mueang, Muang Kao, District Sukothai, Thailand
Tel: +66 0 5561 3241 (Tourist Service Center: +66 0 5561 3241)

How to get there: Possibly the easiest way to get to the 'Old' City from 'New' Sukothai is songtaew - the fare is around 10 Baht from Jarot Withithong Road near the Yom River. Many people stop off at Sukhothai City Walls and Gates to take a look before moving on the Historical Park.
