According to history, Si Satchanalai was a sister city of Sukhothai. This well maintained UNESCO Historical Park is approx 45 sq.kms in area and is a must for those who wish to learn about Thailand's great culture. One can also rent a bicycle to absorb the old ruins and the atmosphere. Purchase your refreshments and visit the toilets before you... More

This is a marvellous site to visit temples in a peaceful and quet environment. Strolling with the bikes through this small temple park is a relief after visiting many touristy sites!

As the title, well worth the visit. Yes indeed, the park is a must for those who are interested in Thailand's history. The park grounds are very beautiful and cover a vast of amount of land. We traveled around in our own car, but the do have a tram that takes you to every part of the park. I didn't... More

We even liked it more than the more well known Sukothai National Park, because of the location, more trees, water and less tourists. There are 2 sides all can be done on foot or by bike easily in a day. There are only very basic hotels nearby these Thai resorts but are nice.

Of course it is great to see the sun rise at Wat Mahathat in Sukothai or wander through the ruins there at sunset but I actually enjoyed Si Satchanalai more and these are the reasons 1. The way there Rent a scooter and take 1195 north from Sukothai. We actually took 1056 up which is easier to follow but took... More

As a jaded traveler in Thailand, I find this place amazing. Don't miss Wat Si Chum. Historical is beautiful and romantic. Use bikes to within the park if you can. We drove but would have prefer bikes.

This is a companion piece to Sukhothai Historical Park and has similar architectural ruins. It is smaller so more easily traversed. The best part is that Si Satchanalai is far less visited so you can find yourself virtually alone in the ruins. The setting takes on a whole new meaning when you stand in the middle absorbing the ambiance without... More

Our guesthouse arrange a car and driver to visit this beautiful Heritage Park. The Park is about 78 K from Sukhothai and thus it took a bit more than an hour to get there. The scenery during the drive was actually quiet nice with huge plots of tobacco farms, fields of marigolds and other agricultural crops lining the road on... More
