“Wonderful piece of History.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Park and its surroundings are stunning and very well kept. It makes a good day trip and with spectacular views left right and centre of all the ruins, also for a small fee you can rent a bike and make your way around the park as you please.

“Well kept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The gardens surrounding the historical park are well kept. However, being the main attraction for Sukhothai, the historical park is not overly impressive especially if you have already seen the Angkor temples. Worth a short visit.

“A must see place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

You need half a day to look around. It would be a good idea to hire tuk tuk to take you around. Some places are accessible by car as well. We think this park compared to AYUTHAIA historical park is a better site.

“nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Very nice place to visit - lots of temples/ruins in a nice atmosphere - surrounded by water. Good transportation (only 30 baht) for transportation from new sukhothai to the old historical park. I recommend it to do it by bike (only 30 baht also)
