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

This place is about one and ahalf hours drive away so i would advise hiring a driver to take you there but it is worth it as it is alot quieter than the historical park but worth the effort. We did it all at a stroll in about three hours so its a nice day out. Also there is a... More

After spending an enjoyable day cycling around the ruins at Sukhothai Historical Park, our guesthouse owner recommended that we spend our second day at Si Satchanalai. We hired a motorbike from Poo restaurant (bike in good condition and friendly service) for the 1.25-1.5 hour drive through the countryside. We took the road past the bus station in New Sukhothai and... More

Secluded, quiet and a large complex to explore. Similar in style to Sukhothai this complex is devoid of tourists. It is fairly spread out so if you took a bus here then hire a bike. We hired a motorbike and ate a restaurant just before the entrance to the park. The menu was in English as well as Thai, so... More

Got a bus in the morning and arrived at around 8:00am. Rented a bicycle and crossed the suspension bridge and began exploring. Very very interesting temples, nobody is around at that time. Tour buses come in after 10:00, but if you have a bicycle you can easily avoid the groups. Stalls sell souvenirs and things to eat. Only problem I... More

I've seen quite a bit of Thailand, and only one temple in Ayutthaya can compare to this place. And this place has numerous ruins. We arrived in the early morning, no one was there, and the sights were spectacular. This is a Khmer city, and as such can't compare to Sukhothai Historical Park, which is more Buddhist. This is way... More

It's difficult to go there, I checked online information and found almost everyone compares it with Sukhothat Historical Park, no one tell you how to go there. I was a solo traveller there, I took a tuktuk to Sukhothat Bus Terminal first, then went to the ticket window and told the lady I want to to go Si Satchanalai Historical... More
