Si Satchanalai isn't as big or impressive as the main historical park at Sukhothai, but that creates a different kind of feeling. Si Satchanalai has towering trees and overgrown ruins (if you make the trek out to some of the smaller ones around the back side of the park). Other than that, the main ruins are located fairly close to... More

This historical park is well worth the time and effort to visit. The main attractions are very good but you will need a bike or be prepared to walk to get the most out of it. For us the outlying Wats of Chedi Kao Yod; Chedi Ean; Wat Kao Yai Lang and Wat Khao Yai 11 were the absolute stars.... More

Well worth the effort to visit the park totally different to Sukhothai Historical Park but still very beautiful in its own way. You can walk or rent bicycles at the park gate to take your time to explore the sites on offer. Did like Wat Chang Lom which has 39 elephants statues around it and some Buddha images add some...

We added a stop at Si Satchanalai on to our road trip as we headed North from Sukhothai to Lampang. We highly recommend a trip to Si Satchanalai. This park is less crowded than Sukhothai and smaller. So in around 3 hours you can really enjoy cycling around the Temples. The part we really enjoyed about Si Satchanalai is that... More

A lot less touristy than Sukhothai Historical Park, this park also offers lots of temples of different eras in various states of reconstruction. Climbing is allowed. Even after the park closes, the temples in the outlying areas are still accessible. Especially the Wat Mahathat is recommended, and don't forget to try the exciting wooden hang bridge nearby. As the park... More

Each of the temple complexes has something different to offer, this one has large columns made in early pre-cast form,very unusual.

Sukothia is a place that you must visit at least once. Many temples here. There are some temples that looks like ruins, abit similar to Chiangmai or Angkor Wat but somehow yet abit different. You gotta go to see the difference. It was good weather when we were there.

Not as many things to see as the Historical park in Sukhothai but is well worth the trip. Besides a couple of small groups, I almost had the entire park to myself. I highly recommend getting a bike to cover the grounds and if possible, go early in the day to avoid the heat.
