This temple ruin was ok. Set in a large area. There are about three or four different ruins to see. Easy to cycle around.

I visited this Wat in the late evening by bicycle and it was spectacular with the sun setting!
As it was not as famous as the other wats, there was no one else there.
Wat Phra Pai Luang is still one my favorite Wat; that made me feel a bit like Indiana Jones….an Adventurer, visiting the ruin of a Great Lost Empire that still stood / has the remains of Lord Buddha almost everywhere, which still makes me wonder how on how great it was back then; especially with their fine detailed Khmer architecture.

The compound is surrounded by moat, and the place is quite huge. The temples area has no trees, it gets very hot under the sun. Not much of restoration work done here.

Wat Phra Phai Luang is probably the most impressive structure outside of the paid area. Similar in grandeur and layout as Wat Mahathat, it actually is more photogenic because it’s crumbling. It would be the only structure outside of the paid area that is worth going out of the way for.

Wat Phrapai Luangโบราณสถานวัดพระพายหลวง is in the Sukhothai Historic Park Northern Zone, Highway 1113, Tambon Mueang Kao, Amphoe Mueang Sukhothai, Chang Wat Sukhothai 64210, Thailand. For those who have visited the main park, the Northern Zone is another 20 Baht for Thais, 100 Baht for foreigners and 10 Baht per bicycle. Riding from town it is easiest to enter across the wooden bridge on the east side of the island. The ticket booth is at 17.029043 N, 99.702693 E (17°01'44.6"N 99°42'09.7"E). This ticket is also good for Wat Si Chum. It is best to go to these sites early in the morning as most Buddha statues face into the rising sun. It is also best to go in the dry season, so as to have more of a chance of abundant sunlight. If you have a chance, an optimal time to go would be during the Sukhothai Loi Krathong And Candle Festival. However, this means that there will be a lot of modern temporary structures and lighting installed at the main Historical Park, which may affect your enjoyment of the archeological sites. The site is open from 06:30 to 18:00.

It is one of the oldest monuments in Sukhothai. It is is located just outside of the old walled town. The first structures built were three Khmer style prangs, of which only the Northern one is still intact. The Wat Phra Phai Luang was built by the Khmer when the Sukhothai area was part of the Khmer empire. In the Sukhothai period the Khmer Mahayana Buddhist temple was converted into a Theravada Buddhist one.

You get combined entry here on a ticket for Wat Si Chum which is the only reason we went in. The ruins offer nothing more than any of the other lesser temples.

Interesting group of ruins. Has one Khmer tower still erect, worth seeing it. When here, make sure to visit Wat si chum, where there's a huge and amazing sitting Buddha. Also visit the new Wat Phra Pai Luang, where monks live and there's a golden reclining Buddha.
