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.
