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

Si Satchanalai is about 70kms from Sukhothai which is an hour's drive. However it is worth making the trip. The historical park is off the beaten track, hence more quiet and tranquil than the park in Sukhothai. We really enjoyed riding our bikes there. If you're into gold you can stop by the famous Si Satchanalai gold shops where beautifully... More

I read the reviews that this park has more to offer than Sukhothai HIstorical Park. Someone even compared this with Angkor Wat. I was disappointed. In my opinion, it's not worth the 3-4 hours drive from Sokhothai to just visit a park/temple that is not as interested as the Sukhothai Historical park. If you have spare time after visiting Sukhothai... More

Certainly worth to spend a visit when you are near by. One day visit is usually enough whereas Sukhothai is worthwhile to spend several days.
