This old historical Buddha temple is just in old sukhothai. We were in Legendha Sukhothai and get a cycle tour to visit this Place. Near and fun to start visiting historical places in morning. Day time is Hot, Don't forget umbrella to protect from heat.

The park and surroundings are vast and the ruins seem in better state than Sukhothai National Park. The park could improve with a little better management. We were there 5 hours and found most of the grounds staff napping the entire time. Certain areas around the hill were pretty overgrown.

Very nice Parc to cycle for some hours, but it's better to go together with a guide. And the best way is to cycle because then it's evasief to cycle around the whole parc. Enjoy....

Visited this park on my own about 16 years ago and enjoyed it. This trip I had the pleasure of showing it to my wife and kids. We all enjoyed it. We hired bikes – 50 baht each I think, something ridiculously low – and zipped along the park paths…kids loved it more than the ruins and kept doing laps.... More

No one else here on a Thai bank holiday weekend so if this is the busy season.... Lots to see, in great parkland like surroundings. I personally didn't rate the kilns but all the other main sites were worth it. Climb the hill for 2 temples but also great birdwatching - flocks of them (I don't know what they were)

I drove from Sukhothai , the road is very busy in the mornings and it takes a good 45 minutes to get there by car. It was impressive and I spent a couple of hours there before moving on to Lampang.

Si Satchalanai Historical Park is quite different to Sukhothai Historical Park - you really feel like you're in the country. You need a bike to get around unless you take one of the little open buses which give tours with a very loud commentary in Thai - kind of spoils the mood! There was hardly anyone there when we visited.... More

From New Sukhothai, it is exactly 60km by 1195 and 1201 roads. These roads are quiet with nice scenery. The historical park is well indicated on signposts. If you go there by motorbike, avoid the big 101 road that is dangerous and without interest. On the way back, do not miss the crossroads to 1195 road otherwise you will join... More
