Located near the Sukhothai Historical Park, this was the first wat my tuktuk driver and I visited. There was no visitor around, just me. There is a short bridge to cross the pond. The biggest attraction is the huge stupa. To the right side of the stupa are a small buddha statue and a big brass bell. My visit was... More

The only thing notable about Traphang Thong is its island location. Considering its proximity to the park and museum it is a very quiet and peaceful to walk for a few minutes and laugh at the cheesy translated aphorisms. The old teak bridge is very nice indeed.

We stopped for lunch in Sukhothai and stumbled upon this small temple in the middle of the lake. There is a walkway bridge to the temple. Although you cannot enter the temple, since it is a monastery. You can walk the picturesque grounds and admire the ancient Stupa, as well as see the monks at work.

It is the only one of the ancient temples within the old city walls that is still in active use. The remaining original structure is a large bell shaped chedi.... More

My friends asked me to visit this temple because of Fishes. There are many healthy fishes that are waiting for you to feed them (even though, they are so big and healthy, but they love it) The temple is not far from Sukhothai Historical Park,..about 5 minutes drive..

This temple is located outside the Sukhothai main historical Park. When I arrived and alighted at the bus stop at Old Sukhothai City, the first thing I saw were the many Loy Krathong festival decorated lanterns that were hanging on a bridge over a moat leading to the temple. This temple is small and not very spectacular after having seen... More
