How does an Anglo-Saxon compare Si Satchanalai HP (SSNP) to other ruins of the world - Roman forum, Greek antiquities, Machu Picchu, Mayan ruins of Mexico and Central America or Angor Wat. Well you give it a 4 when otherwise it might have gotten a 5 (compared to Thai sites) for 36 elephants and Buddha's too numerous to count. Two... More

This park is just so beautiful, with stunning lakes, flowers, trees and architectural interests. We spent around 2 hours with a guide which was fine but you could take a picnic and find a beautiful spot to enjoy.

This place is A-Must for family with all ages. We could explore many areas in the park by walk, tram, or bicycle. We made decision on bicycle which I did not take a ride by my own for 20+ years..........make me feel at age of 12+ and very good time with my kids at age of 6 and 8 years... More

We rented cycles at the entrance, which I would strongly recommend. This is a large park with many ruins spread around. We visited during Chinesse New Year celebrations so there was plenty food and entertainment. This is a must see for anyone visiting Thailand.

What a lovely day exploring the many ruins in sure a calm, serene setting. The weather was pleasant, the greenery sparkling, the pools of water reflecting the ruins and trees in the background. There were not the crowds like at Angkor Wat making for a great experience.

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
